Sat 5 Nov | VicBears Lazy Saturday Lunch (Aussie Hotel)
Lunch – Carnival – Dance Party – Stay The Night!
VicBears is heading country on Saturday 5 November to celebrate with our bear brothers at the Shepparton Annual Pride and diversity festival – Out in the Open.
Saturday 5 November is the festival’s Carnival Day with fabulous market stalls, music and entertainment to enjoy. There’s even a dance party in the evening for Bears wanting to get their groove on and party the night away.
VICBEARS @ LAZY SHEPPARTON SATURDAY LUNCH
We are booked in at The Aussie Hotel for 1:00pm. The menu items range from $16 – $32 with a few gluten free options available. The hotel is located at 73 Fryers Street, Shepparton, VIC 3630.
VICBEARS @ THE CARNIVAL
The Carnival runs from 10.30am – 4.00pm in the Queen’s Gardens Park which is about a 5 minute walk from the Aussie Hotel. Organisers advise you bring your own blanket or seating and there is a strict no glass policy. The Queen’s Gardens are located on the corner of Wyndham & Nixon Streets, Shepparton.
VLine does run a service between Melbourne and Shepparton, but from what we can see the only services running on this date that would be appropriate are the 9.12am service departing from Southern Cross station to Shepparton. The return VLine train is the 4.05pm service departing Shepparton back to Southern Cross station.
Probably the best option and an easy 2 hour drive from Melbourne. Car-pooling is a great idea so if you’re offering or seeking a ride – feel free to leave your details in the comments section
STAY THE NIGHT! – ACCOMMODATION
For those bears wanting to stay the night, Shepparton has several accommodation options to suit everyone
