Ideas for senior tours and day trips on the Sapphire Coast

There is a plethora of excellent options for senior tours and day trips that can be taken by bus on the Sapphire Coast and the wider Bega Valley region. The area is blessed with stunning coastlines, lush rainforest, rolling hills and pristine farmland, as well as plenty of history and attractions to experience on a bus trip for seniors.

Here are some ideas to get you started.

History and culture

If you’re interested in culture and heritage, the Bega Valley has a lot to offer. The area is home to the Bega Cheese Heritage Centre, the Tathra Wharf Museum and the Old Bega Courthouse, among other historical sites. There are also plenty of art galleries and museums to explore, as well as markets and festivals that celebrate local culture and traditions.

Attractions and activities

In addition to history and culture, the area is adorned with natural attractions and plenty of activities for seniors to enjoy. The beaches are a big drawcard, with plenty of spots for swimming, surfing, fishing and whale watching. There are also plenty of National Parks to see, as well as golf courses, wineries and other tourist destinations.

Wineries

We just mentioned wineries, but they definitely deserve their own section. The Bega Valley is well-known for its wine production, with dozens of wineries in the area. Some of them offer tours and tastings, so it’s a great way to learn about the wine-making process while also sampling some local fare. A hop-on, hop-off bus tour of local wineries for seniors is truly an enticing way to spend the day – and not just for seniors either.

Food tours

When it comes to culinary experiences, the Bega Valley has some of the best in Australia. What better way to learn about it than on a food tour? You’ll get to try local dishes and learn about the region’s cuisine’s history and culture. There are several different food tours to choose from, so you’re sure to find one that’s right for you.
