Blair Athol Estate

The Plan

Note: There will only be places for a maximum of between 10-14 couples and spots are filling already.

Leave Brisbane before mid-morning on the Friday aiming to get to Warwick and allowing enough time for a decent break at the cafe at Warwick where the Morgan Park sprinters usually go.

Refuel before heading off to Inglewood for lunch. There is a great pie shop there as well as a good cafe. Those who didn’t earlier, can refuel here.

After lunch travel on to Inverell hopefully arriving a bit after mid-afternoon. Accommodation at Inverell will have to be split between two locations depending on the total numbers coming.

The primary accommodation will be at Blair Athol Estate, about five minutes drive north-west of the town centre. This is a fantastic restored Edwardian mansion. A recent addition is a day spa facility. Prices are good and the facility will accommodate seven couples. The day spa may be used by all who attend. Relax, laze around the spa or do whatever you fancy for this afternoon.

Please note that the Blair Athol Estate places are almost fully booked already. Overflow accommodation will be at the Inverell Terrace Motor Lodge. Pricing is similar. Both venues have breakfasts for what seems to be a reasonable extra charge.

It has been recommended that we go out to dinner at The General Merchant, a restaurant in the centre of town. It also does breakfast. Please inform us of any dietary requirements, allergies when making your booking.

The roads from Brisbane to Inverell are standard Queensland country. The road from Inglewood down through Texas across the border is a little bumpy in places but quite okay for Lotus. Once we get over the border past Texas the roads down to Inverell are great.

On Saturday after breakfast at our respective accommodations we regroup and go to the National Transport Museum just on the south side of town. It is a terrific museum and well worth a visit.

After that we drive to Uralla over some fantastic roads full of undulations, twists and straights. Uralla has some great cafés for lunch and a really nice craft brewery that we can go to for some tastings.

We then head to Tenterfield where we may need to split accommodation between the fabulously restored art deco The Commercial Boutique Hotel and Jumbuck Motor Inn. The Commercial has a big lounge area with lots of nice Chesterfields where we can sit around in front of the fire. Dinner that night in the dining room at the hotel. Really great menu.

On Sunday we take a walk around town. It is quite pretty and worth spending a bit of time. It also has a great railway museum at the now closed Tenterfield railway station.

Return to Brisbane at leisure down the New England Highway.
