Car Enthusiasts: Car Displays for the Cortina Nationals – 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the ubiquitous Ford Cortina. This what they say: “The Cortina brand has become a worldwide motoring icon from the rich competition history of the Mk1, right through to the first-car and family duties of the humble 'T' series Cortina”.
Rutherglen Winery Walkabout; Here is what they say: “Victoria's original wine festival boasts three Tourism Awards including "Best Festival in Victoria" and "Best Festival in Australia". An array of entertainment and activities are happening throughout the weekend. You'll find each of the wineries is offering something different from reserve tastings of rare vintages, to live bands, produce markets,
unique breakfasts or special dinners.
Winery Shuttle Bus; Here is what they say: Hop on and off as you please in a safe and easy tour of the wineries. The shuttle bus will stop at each winery every half hour making it easy for you to get around to all the wineries you want to visit.
