What could be better than cracking a crisp, cold cider? Cracking one while breathing in the crisp, cool air of the Great Dividing Ranges, that's what. Cider-lovers, get ready to get your hands on some of Australia's premium fermented apple drops at the Batlow CiderFest.
It's a street party of great proportions, with locals and visitors alike coming together to celebrate the end of the apple harvest and the best boutique ciders the region has to offer. There will also be gourmet food and other locally grown goodies on offer to satiate your hunger.
Batlow's main street will host two stages where local talent will entertain you as you sit back, relax, bask in the refreshing mountain air and enjoy the glorious autumn leaves. There'll be buskers and street theatre performers, including a local troupe called the 'Apple Tarts' (yes, we're serious). And for those keen to learn more about the nitty gritty of the cider world, there's a cider industry conference the day before.
Batlow CiderFest will run from 10am–4.30pm on Saturday, May 19.
