Who doesn't like the combination of wine and music in this type of environment! Choose the opera only, or your lunch and opera, or dinner and opera combination.
Tickets $85 (opera only) up to $210 (all day) and the other combinations in-between. Might be a bit expensive for some budgets, but if it is the style of event that you enjoy, well go on then, just treat yourself. Held at Ballandean Estates Winery and in conjunction with Stanthorpe Rotary Club.
Donations from past events have been made to charity and it is expected the same will occur this year. Full costs and entertainment details can be found here.
