When staying at Zebula Gloucester, you will be well placed to explore other towns in the region – Barrington, Stratford, Krambach, Bretti, Barrington Tops, Stroud, Bulahdelah, Nabiac, Mares Run and more.
Whether you’re spending the night at Zebula Gloucester or have planned a more extended stay, you will be pleased to learn that there are plenty of attractions and activities in the area for you to enjoy.
If you love to get outdoors and breathe in the fresh air, you’ve come to the right place. Check out the Woko National Park, Gloucester Tops National Park, Barrington Tops National Park or Copeland Tops Conservation Area. All offer plenty of walking trails, many of them suitable for walking with children, as well as allow you to get up close and personal with our wildlife. If travelling in winter, Barrington Tops is known to get a generous dusting of snow!
The reason is home to numerous events throughout the year. Popular ones include the Shakespeare Festival (in March), Motor Cycle Expo and Muster (the first weekend of May), Chill Out Festival (the second weekend of July), Art Trail (in August and September), and the Gloucester Tri Challenge (a triathlon event on the second Sunday of September). If planning to stay whilst one of these events is one, be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
For more regular events, we definitely recommend checking out one of the area’s many markets. The Gloucester Community Market occurs 4 times a year (Easter weekend, Queen’s Birthday weekend, Labour Day weekend and close to Christmas), whereas the Gloucester Farmers Market is held on the second Saturday of every month. Both markets offer opportunities to sample local produce. The community market also boasts crafts and much more.
Who doesn’t love a glass of wine or two? There are a number of wineries and cellar doors dotted throughout the region, and all are well worth a visit if you have some time to spare. In particular, we recommend Tugwood Winery, Faulls Ridge Winery, Gloucester River Winery and Alderley Creek Winery. Most wineries are open daily for tastings – if you find one you like, be sure to grab a couple of extra bottles to take home with you!
If you’re the kind of person who likes to get the adrenalin pumping, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to do so. Why not try your hand at abseiling? There are two amazing locations – The Steps cliff (10 metres) and BuccanBuccans cliff (22 metres). You could give canoeing, kayaking or even white water rafting a go on the picturesque Barrington River. Finally, you could shred up the track at the purpose-built The Steps Mountain Bike Park.
Those who are more interested in the cultural aspects of the region will not be disappointed. The Gloucester Museum is full of fascinating artifacts, many of which date back to when the area was first settled. The Gloucester Gallery offers monthly exhibitions by local artists and community groups. And the Gloucester Arts Cultural Council Inc (GACCI) brings plenty of entertainment to the town, from arts and live music to live theatre.
