TomahROMA – Colourful Autumn Fair at Mt Tomah
Only a 10 minute drive from Bilpin, The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden at Mt Tomah attracts thousands of visitors each autumn, and TomahROMA - its annual autumn wine and food fair - is even more reason to make your way through the gates this May.
On Saturday 2nd May wander the lawns of the gardens and sample fresh locally grown produce and fine fare lovingly created by producers from the Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury region.
With fresh juice and cider, crafts and clothes on offer, there will be something for everyone. The aroma of fresh coffee will fill the air and mingle with the sounds coming from this year’s Buskers Lawn.
Linger on the lawn watching the annual Apple Pie Bake Off, or join our volunteers on one of the free, guided tours leaving regularly from the Visitor Centre and discover autumnal delights of a more botanical kind.
Bilpin Springs Lodge has facilities for you to self-cater, so no need to miss out on the fun of this old fashioned bake –off. Pick your favourite kind of apples at one of Bilpin’s many orchards, dust off Nanna’s secret recipe and enter your best-baked apple creation to be in the running for the title. Get in touch with Carole Jensen on 4567 1317 or firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your entry.
Amidst the vivid autumn colours, music and breathtaking views, the Kurrajong Handspun Crafts team will be competing for the coveted international title, in the Back to Back International Wool Challenge. In less than 8 hours the team will take the wool on a journey from the back of the sheep to the back of the shearer – shearing the sheep, spinning the wool and knitting a jumper. With over $60,000 raised for cancer research, and a best of third in the world, this challenge is worth stopping by and supporting.
