Chittering Valley

At this time of the year Chittering Valley takes me back to the Southern Highlands and Kangaroo Valley; it is vivid green, with a countryside that is bursting with vineyards, orchards, hobby farms and magnificent views that has the Brockman River flowing through the scenery.

Last Sunday we took a drive to Chittering Valley to enjoy the food and wine festival which was more wine than food being available. The venue was out in a paddock with market stall's selling their produce and people relaxing, enjoying the sunshine, sipping on a vino and listening to the musicians playing their repertoire - it was very relaxing.

Not far from Chittering Valley is the Catholic Agricultural College, which we visited on the Camino walk a few weeks ago. The community of the College were very hospitable and served us afternoon tea but I had mixed feelings as this in a previous life was Bindoon Boys Town. If you've seen the movie Oranges and Sunshine then you'll understand the evils that were behind Bindoon Boys Town.
