A quick drive off the M1 takes you to Yarramalong, a beautiful, hidden pocket of the Central Coast, NSW. It is a gorgeous area dotted with homesteads, cows, horses and picturesque views of the surrounding valley. You feel as if you are driving through the countryside.
The annual Yarramalong Valley Spring Festival has several different events staged from the 29th August to 13th September 2015. Central Coast Weekender took a drive to check out the roadside Scarecrow Competition.
It features a number of roadside Scarecrows created by local residents and schools displayed along Yarramalong, Brush Creek and Ravensdale Road. We enjoyed spotting the scarecrows along the roadside and admired how much effort had been put into creating them.
Visitors are invited to vote for their favourite Scarecrow online.
Tomorrow, Sunday 6th September, visitors can combine a drive to view the Scarecrows with a stop at the Wyong Creek Hall. Visitors are invited to enjoy a delicious High Tea, sampling hot and cold, savoury and sweet delights. While at the hall visitors will also be able to view painting and sculptures by local artists and even sample a selection of Robert Oatley wines. The High Tea will be available from 10am -4pm.
The Scarecrow display will continue until the 13th September, on this day the festival culminates with the Spring Show.
Central Coast Weekender highly recommends checking out this unique event. It is a wonderful opportunity to explore this beautiful area of the Central Coast.
