Regional NSW springs into life with warmer weather and fun events to enjoy

Spring has sprung and with the warmer weather on its way, Reflections Holiday Parks is urging people to take advantage of the many opportunities to get out and about to experience the best that Regional NSW has to offer.

Reflections Holiday Parks CEO Steve Edmonds said the group’s 37 parks were the perfect springboards to experience Regional NSW, with September 2018 and the coming months full of fun cultural and multicultural events and festivals for visitors.

“Our parks are located in the most pristine settings throughout NSW and the warmer seasonal weather provides that extra motivation to go exploring,” Mr Edmonds said.

“As well as the many regional NSW events on offer, our parks also hold popular community events like the Doggy Date Night which will be held out our Moonee Beach park with RSPCA NSW this Saturday, 15 September 2018.

“I love this time of year, coming up next week on 22 September 2018 near our Wyangala Waters park is the Sakura Matsuri, also known as the Cherry Blossom Festival, held annually at the Cowra Japanese Garden and Cultural Centre.”

Cowra Japanese Garden Manager Shane Budge said the Sakura Matsuri was a day to enjoy different facets of traditional Japanese culture, from martial arts and origami to bonsai and tea ceremonies.

“Around 2,000 local, interstate and international visitors come each year to see the cherry blossoms, wander the gardens and take in the cultural experiences that make Japan so unique,” Mr Budge said.

But the fun doesn’t stop in Japan. Nestled between Reflections Holiday Parks Moonee Beach and Corindi Beach is Woolgoolga, home to Indian celebration CurryFest on 29 September 2018.

Or take a musical trip to Ireland between 14-16 September 2018, with the Irish and Celtic Music Festival in Yass, an easy drive from Reflections Holiday Parks Burrinjuck Waters.

For guests at Reflections Holiday Parks Evans Head looking to explore the wider region, Eat Street Yamba is held on the last day of September 2018 for locally sourced produce and international food market enthusiasts.

“What better way to celebrate the new season than a road trip, timed to coincide with one of these fantastic events?” Mr Edmonds said.

“Stay in one of our 37 parks across regional NSW, get out and enjoy some unique cultural experiences, and scratch that international travel itch without damaging your hip pocket.”
