Winter inside the Riverina

Winter is a wonderful time to travel to the Riverina and discover the abundance of food, wine and agricultural tourism experiences. In the winter edition of Inside the Riverina immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture, museums filled with artefacts and memorabilia and good old country hospitality.

With crisp cool, sun filled days there is an abundance of lush green paddocks of wheat, barley, oats and canola. Sweet and juicy navel oranges, lemons and mandarins are in season (90% of citrus products in NSW are grown in the Riverina), the beautiful Cootamundra wattle is in flower and vineyards are pruned and readied for the hibernation months.

Chris Whyte of Magpies Nest considers winter the perfect season for the restaurant to showcase regional produce.

“The fruition of months of hard work can now be translated into inspired meals for locals and visitors alike. We enjoy talking to people about the concept of paddock to plate and how well the Riverina does that”, said Chris.

Also on offer over the cooler months is a list of tour dates into Wiradjuri country with Bundyi Cultural Tours and aircraft showcase days at the Temora Aviation Museum. Visitors to the museum are encouraged to stay afterwards and chat with the pilots and engineering team as part of the Engineering Talk. The Wetlands of West Wyalong is alive with an abundance of seasonal birds and wildlife, and our cafes and restaurants have delicious winter menus waiting to be matched with local wines.
