Bus Trips

The next bus trip is to Parklea and Flemington markets on Sunday 3rd March. There are a few seats left so get to the meeting early before they are all snapped up. A ticket is only $10pp.

The February bus trip to Cobbitty Winery and The Campbelltown Art Centre was a great success with some members taking part in a filmed Art Event while others contented themselves with admiring the works on display and walking round the Japanese Garden and outdoor sculpture exhibition, it was great fun. Lunch was taken next door at the Campbelltown Catholic Club - a great favourite with the bus trip participants.

Walking Group

Due to the inclement weather the walk to Berry Island was abandoned and the walking group instead visited the Museum of Sydney which had a couple of special exhibitions; one about the artist Margaret Olley and the other the old Sydney Stadium.

The visit commenced with a terrific half hour guided tour of the Museum by an enthusiastic member of the staff after which we were able to browse at our own pace. Even at lunch time when the group left they had not seen everything so members will be going back individually to see the rest of what is a fascinating museum - well worth a visit.
