Limited Edition Dinner

We know that some of you would like a special experience at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo, so we’ve created this ARTLANDS Limited Edition Dinner. It’s a limited edition as we have limited capacity, so it’s first to book.

This exclusive event will be held in the grounds of Taronga Western Plains Zoo at the Savanah Function Centre. Enjoy sunset champagne and canapes on the lawns overlooking the beautiful Savannah Lake, a behind the scenes walking tour to view the black rhino, white rhino, elephant and giraffe, a delicious three course meal accompanied by wines from the region and music from the Macquarie Conservatorium.

The Big Shed Dinner

The ARTLANDS conference dinner, The Big Shed Dinner for delegates is an experience in rural hospitality. Dress down, as country is the theme for this great event. It will be short on formality and tall on food and fun. The menu will be sourced from providores of the region, grown, harvested and prepared locally. A paddock to plate experience. Three course menu with wines from the famous wineries of the Central West.

Held in the newest pavilion at the Dubbo Showground, we’re moving out the cattle and moving in the arts. And we’re having a birthday party! Regional Arts NSW (formerly the NSW Arts Council) is inviting you to join with us in celebrating our 70th birthday.
