Discovering Joadja

Join Us On 2 September As We Discover
Joadja Ghost Town & Distilley

Joadja valley and town is a region of significant cultural heritage.  The community at its peak was home to more than 1200 people, mostly Scottish immigrants who lived in tough conditions in an isolated valley. The mine closed and the people that lived here moved away to start somewhere new. The town, the mine and its equipment were left behind, and now stand as a testament to what took place here all that time ago. Nature is slowly but surely taking Joadja back, climbing over the buildings and working its way into the foundations. Come and enjoy the beauty of this stunning valley, hear the stories and feel the history behind it all!

Includes Transfer to and from  the Shoalhaven (from designated pick up points), Morning Tea, 90 Minute Guided Ghost Town Walk, BBQ Lunch & Distillery Tour

Australia’s biggest celebration of spring – returns to Canberra for the 30th year in 2017
Developed in 1988 as a grand, one off floral tribute to mark Australia’s Bicentenary and Canberra’s 75th anniversary, Floriade has become Canberra’s most iconic annual tourism event and Australia’s premier spring festival. The floral display of more than a million bulbs and annuals planted across 8,000 square metres of inner city parkland is more than just a flower show.
If one million bulbs and annuals weren’t impressive enough, Floriade presented its popular after-dark experience NightFest across five illuminated nights in 2016 and is excited to do so again in 2017. Visitors explored amazing outdoor lighting design and production, curated and constructed by the expert team at Mandylights. They designed a parkland-full of impressive lighting installations which excited and delighted. Complementing the bazillion LED lights incorporated into inspired lighting designs, NightFest hosted a swathe of roving entertainment delighting those wandering through the wonderland.
Nightfest includes:
  • Illuminated wonderland – Explore the whimsy and the beauty in outdoor lighting design and production, as curated and constructed by the expert team at Mandylights. They’ve designed a parkland – full of impressive lighting installations which will excite and delight the fairy light lover in anyone.
  • Roving Entertainment – Be amused and entertained by talented musicians, quirky roving entertainers and circus acts, who will bring the park to life each night. Giant lady bugs, flame twirlers and many many more…
  • The Marketplace – To indulge your inner foodie (and food critic), we’ve created the Marketplace; a food, wine and beer bazaar hosted in the The Kitchen Company Tasting Plate, during NightFest. Explore the food and beverage crafts of Bentspoke Brewery, Pialligo estate, Mount Majura vineyard and more, in a melting pot of top local and regional talent.
