Banalasta Visitor's Centre
The Banalasta, Blickling Estate and World Forest 2000 Visitor Centre is located on the 3000ha Banalasta plantation in Bendemeer, on the New England Tablelands of NSW. It is the chance to offer our customers the unique experience of a high altitude cafe, cellar door and shop situated amongst vineyards, lavender and eucalyptus plantations.
Our award winning centre (Inland NSW Tourism Awards 2005) provides the opportunity to try or buy our extensive range of home grown certified organic eucalyptus and lavender oil based health and skin care products. Or, just too simply sit back and relax with a coffee and light lunch by the wood fire or taste an impressive selection of the Blickling Estate's boutique white and red wines at cellar door prices. All while taking in the breathtaking views.
The kiddies will not be bored, as there are a wide variety of animals to feed and croon over. Self guided vineyard tours or walks on the property are available but a must see for all is the tour of the distillery showcasing how our oils are distilled.
Eucalyptus plants for the world forest, tree plaques and tree gift vouchers can also be purchased from the Visitor Centre.
We cater for bus operators and also have disabled facilities.
We welcome you 7 days per week, 10-4pm (except Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & Good Friday).
Every 1st Sunday of the month, the Visitor Centre hosts free live music.......Refer to our 'News & Media' section for upcoming artist dates!
