Swinging Bridge Cellar Door

Having established Swinging Bridge Wines with their extended family in 1995, Tom and Georgie took over the business in 2008.

Since then, they have broadened their wines to include chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir from the cool climate of Orange in NSW. These wines now complement the shiraz from the original Swinging Bridge home block.

Swinging Bridge is now one of the region’s leading winegrowers, having recently been awarded 5 STARS in James Halliday’s 2016 Australian Wine Companion.

Age of Fishes

Age of Fishes Museum

Imagine a world ruled by fish! Long before dinosaurs roamed the Earth, the mighty rivers of the Central West teemed with bizarre ancient fishes – armoured fishes, fishes with lungs, and some huge predators with jaws like crocodiles. Thousands of their fossils were found at Canowindra and give us a unique glimpse into life during the Devonian Period – the ‘Age of Fishes’.

A chance discovery in 1955 revealed an extensive fossil bed dating from the Devonian Period. This 360-370 million year old fossil deposit contains the remains of thousands of freshwater fish. Many were new to science. The best of the fossils so far recovered are now on public display at Canowindra, at the Age of Fishes Museum

Balloon Joy Flights

Hot air ballooning is one of life’s magical experiences. It is hard to explain the wonder of flying with the wind and having no sensation of movement. Words don’t do the visual spectacular justice, whether it is a brilliant sunrise or a mystical morning with fog lying in all the low valleys. Sunrise Flights last for 45 minutes to 1 hour flying time depending on available landing sites. After a spectacular flight our passengers enjoy a complimentary champagne breakfast.
