Join Hawkesbury Valley Heritage Tours on special-interest tour of Hawkesbury

Keep the date free – Friday, 31 October 2014. Hawkesbury Valley Heritage Tours will be running a relaxed, full day coach tour through the most historic areas of the Hawkesbury in conjunction with Hawkesbury-based artist Greg Hansell’s annual studio exhibition. Accompanied by Greg on the tour, we will showcase selected locations depicted in Greg’s current portfolio. This is an opportunity not to be missed as we visit the UWS Riverfarm on the Richmond Lowlands which is not usually open to the public. The Riverfarm was first acquired by the old Hawkesbury Agricultural College in the early 1900s. You will also enjoy a walk through the gardens of historic ‘Tara’ (Greg Hansell’s home on the Hawkesbury River at Windsor) including a visit to the artist’s studio, a visit to Tizzana Winery and several other heritage sites in the Hawkesbury. Join this fantastic trip with me (a sixth-generation Hawkesburyite), Greg (a highly-regarded local artist who has lived in the area for more than 35 years and who is Art Director of the Royal Art Society in Sydney) and Geoff (who has also lived in the area for more than 35 years and has training in heritage architecture). Check out our notice at Historic Windsor Guide http://www.historicwindsorguide.com/blog.html. Details: 9.30am to 5.00pm. Adults $75, Concession $67.50. Morning tea, lunch, cheese & wine-tasting at Tizzana and glass of wine at Greg Hansell’s studio all included.
