Magnificent Coach Tour

2022 June

Ladies , friends, and partners from several local VIEW clubs joined our Members on a coach trip out to Windy station, for a yummy morning tea followed by informative history from Clare of the Windy station woolshed.

The Woolshed was constructed and finished in 1901 by AA company. An amazing feat when you consider how large the Woolshed is with 44 stands and some of the construction material came all the way from Canada. The first shearing commenced 7th October 1901 and 60,000 sheep had been shorn in this shed by end of 1901.

We travelled on to Gunnedah for lunch at the Railway Hotel, a very popular venue with great food. After lunch we were joined by a lady from Gunnedah Information Centre for a guided tour around Gunnedah before heading back to Tamworth.  While travelling on coach we were all challenged with a quiz, to be completed during the day; keeping the grey matter turning.
Many thanks to Barry Black who volunteered to be our coach driver for the day you did a fantastic job and very much appreciated by everyone.

A huge thank you to Lyn and Ellie our program officers for organising such a wonderful day out with lots of great conversations being heard as people connected or reconnected, and with beautiful weather to boot.  The raffle held along the way was won by Elizabeth.
