A day-trip to Upper Lachlan

Laggan Pantry is a one stop shop for foodies. Just a 3 hour drive from Sydney, the heart of this property is the beautiful restaurant, surrounded by picturesque gardens. Their food philosophy is to use fresh, seasonal produce, with much of the ingredients sourced from local farms, and their on-site kitchen garden.  They also brew their own beer on site, and you can try it in the newly opened tap room. Make a weekend of it and stay the night in Laggan Cottage, a cosy 1 bedroom self-contained accommodation that’s the perfect place to unwind.

Taralga Wildlife Park is a must-visit when you visit the historic town of Taralga. This place is home to a collection of native and exotic animals, including a variety of different birds, dingos, emus, wallabies, deers, llamas, alpacas, miniature horses and more! Just a short drive from the town centre, the park is a great place to take the kids. They’ll love interacting with the baby farm animals and getting to hand feed them in the friendship farm area.

The Southern Tablelands is a fantastic region, filled with interesting history, delicious food and awesome experiences. Just a three hour drive from Sydney it’s somewhere the whole family will love exploring.
