Day Trips and Devonshire Tea at Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village
Geelong is a wonderful place to live with its proximity to many local attractions and coastal towns. With daylight hours increasing and the temperature warming, it’s a great time to venture out and about for a day trip and the ever popular scones, jam and cream. The residents of Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village enjoy regular day trips and Devonshire tea excursions. Whether you ask for a Devonshire tea, a cream tea, or scones, jam and cream, according to the popular online accommodation, food and travel rating website ‘tripadvisor’, the top places in the region for this ever popular delicacy (in no particular order) are;
• Eastern Hub, Geelong
• Van Loons Nursery, Wallington
• Geelong Botanical Gardens, Geelong
• Moorabool Valley Chocolate by Design, Batesford
• Barwon Park, Winchelsea
“The residents are a very social bunch and regularly take the Barwarre Gardens bus and visit many attractions in the area, always stopping for a coffee or bite to eat”, says Village Manager, Sue Duncan.
“Even though it is still a contentious issue between English based Cornwell and Devon on where the name ‘Devonshire Tea’ originated, we are all the more grateful for its creation”. Whether it’s for lunch or afternoon tea, with so many options available you must not miss out on the best this region has to offer. One thing is for sure that if you are in Geelong you are never going to be out of options to drink and dine especially if you are a Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village resident.
