Flyfaire Wins Silver at the NSW Tourism Awards
This past Thursday (Nov. 26th), Julianne and Les, our Business Director and Winemaker, attended the NSW Tourism Awards in Darling Habour, Sydney. We are delighted to say that we won the Silver Award on the night!
The NSW Tourism Awards are held every year to acknowledge excellence in tourism for all of New South Wales tourism areas.
The team from Flyfaire are thrilled to have made the finals and we were expecting a tough night with high standards of competition. When the results were announced, we were thoroughly thrilled to have won the Silver Award. This is a huge achievement for the team and reflects how far we've come on our journey.
The NSW Tourism Awards is a fantastic way to develop tourism in the Murray region, as well as for NSW. The awards also helps to recognise independent operators that are providing wonderful tourism experiences.
Margan Wines took the gold award and also entered the Hall of Fame (winners three years running). Hungerford Hill Wines and Bimbadgen Winery (runner-up in 2014) were also great competitors which definitely made the decision tough for the judges on the night in the category Tourism Wineries, Distilleries and Breweries. The Greater Hume Shire Visitor Information Centre was also a finalist at the NSW Tourism Awards, which is in the same area as Flyfaire.
Flyfaire recently won the Gold Award at the Inland Tourism Awards in Broken Hill in July of this year. Read about the post for the Inland Tourism Awards here.

Only Rice is Not Enough | Flyfaire's Wine goes to Vietnam for Charity
Bill McDonald, a local farmer from Mullengandra and patron of Flyfaire Wines, recently went to Vietnam to raise money for a local charity called Only Rice Is Not Enough. Bill and other Albury Rotarians travelled together for the charity event.
Bill and the local Rotarians were asked to bring items of interest from their local community to auction in Vietnam and help raise funds for the charity. Flyfaire donated a bottle of our Riesling for the event which was subsequently auctioned for USD$50 following the story of Flyfaire being told at the auction.
Only Rice Is Not Enough is a local charity in Vietnam whose moto is “A Dime For A Meal to the little kid. Not much, but everyday”. To find out more and like them on Facebook - click here.
New Hume Highway (M31) Signs for Flyfaire
The NSW Roads and Maritime service recently installed four fabulous highway signs in mid-October, indicating Flyfaire's turn-off on the Hume Highway (Motorway 31 or M31). It is now much easier to find us with the signs clearly indicating the turn-off from the highway.
