It's Brass Monkey

Winter has arrived - burr. We recorded minus 1.7 yesterday night. But to keep you warm check out our fantastic Brass Monkey Winter mid week packages - there is a crackling log fire awaiting you. Book now and go into the draw to win a Granite Belt Graze Gourmet Hamper jam packed full of foodie delights and Strange Bird wine.

With so much to see and do, it can be hard to know where to start! To make it easy we have created a Winter MUST DO List. Not to be missed is getting your photo taken with our Brass Monkey - it's a ball freezing experience.

Other MUST DOs include grabbing a wicker basket and sourcing seasonal produce - bursting with flavour are Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Celery, Leeks and Mushrooms. Every second Sunday be spoilt for choice at the Markets in the Mountains.

Not up for cooking – savour slow cooked produce at a Granite Belt restaurant or one of the many food and wine events on this winter. Elevate your taste with melt in your mouth tantalising pork roasted with apple and onion stuffing, or discover the call of the wild with gamemeat cooked to perfection. And finish it off with a heavenly hot chocolate.

Other winter activities include realizing your creative prowess at an art class, learn the art of wine and how to sound like an expert, or relax and rejuvenate at a yoga and well-being retreat.

At the end of that, just breathe the crisp mountain air which will hopefully bring us snow.So wrestle on the boots and wind a few scarves around your neck and head up the mountain to the Granite Belt.
