IN THE YASS VALLEY
5 days of singing and walking amongst the vineyards of the beautiful Yass Valley
DATES: 23 – 28 May 2021
Welcome to this picturesque and unknown region with a variety of award winning vineyards. Our days will be spread between 1- 2 hour singing classes in wineries and local churches, walks of 1–2 hours, a visit to a nearby historic town and delicious home cooked meals back at our Homestead every night.
Joining Rachel, Jo Cresswell and Dave O’Neil
She has a passion for creative projects that get people out of their heads and into their hearts and creativity. She is committed to creating musical projects that are human scale, sustainable and encourage education and connection.
For this Singing Week his love of cooking will come to the fore producing delectable meals for hungry singers.
You can choose from a range of accommodation marking the corners of a triangle between which we can walk (20-40mins) or drive (5 mins).
Our main residence is a Georgian style homestead set amongst the vineyards. It has spacious rooms, verandahs, and views to the Brindabella Mountains and Murrumbidgee River corridor.
We have rooms here for couples.
A walk away are some extraordinary, vintage, art deco train carriages also with views. They are all self-contained with room for singles and couples.
Our third accom is at a winery where one of our classes and a sumptuous 3 course lunch will be held. Here we have room for singles or couples in a balcony apartment that shares a large living space.
We’ll enjoy 2 gourmet lunches and a wine tasting at local wineries, otherwise
Dave will be our chef extraordinaire for our scrumptious dinners. He is able to cater to standard, vegetarian, gluten free and keto diets. Breakfasts will be available at each accommodation. We will supply teas, coffee & bikkies.
As well as singing, all days include a walking option, either guided by Jo or simply a walk from your residence to your singing venue for the day. The walks will be anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. The walking is undulating but not hard.
The cost for the trip is $1,870 inc gst. We have very few single rooms. Please contact Jo regarding these and prices.

Unwind and relax
We won’t plan your every moment so be prepared to unwind and relax! Enjoy some hours reading, doing craft, playing cards after dinner or whatever your leisure time pick is.
