So you’re heading to Langhorne Creek for Handpicked Festival on November 12. You’ve booked your tickets, your mates are good to go, and you’ve decided to pull up a patch of grass in the festival’s Tent City and stay for the night. But what are you going to do on Sunday after a big night at one of the best music festivals in the state? … Well, we have three of the best things to do in Langhorne Creek after Handpicked Festival!
#3 - Recover in an Oasis
After a big night of world class Australian musicians, great local foods, and some seriously responsible drinking, it’s always a good idea to ease into a post-festival Sunday. The Oasis Gardens and Function Centre in Langhorne Creek is the perfect setting to face the day.
Be prepared to be surprised! Transport yourself to a paradise of tranquillity in the heart of the Langhorne Creek wine region and enjoy the calming sounds of this hidden oasis; the perfect setting to soothe that sore head.
#2 – Refuel with a hearty lunch
