Our Shuttle Bus Transport will operate for $25 pp only between the wineries – starting at Allandale Winery and then operating a one way circuit to Sandalyn – from 930am to 4pm. There is no need to pre book this option and you can simply pay any of the Rover Marshalls on site at the wineries on the day.  Don’t forget the shuttle goes in one direction and during the busy peaks can take up to 1hr to operate a circuit.  You need to plan your wineries so you are not going past a winery that you would like to visit later in the day as you are wasting valuable Long Lunch time on a bus!!

Bus departs from the Rydges HV every half hour from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Includes shuttles between the wineries & return to Rydges after the event.



We have been operating the Long Lunch for over 20 years now and have partnered with the event to give you the easiest and most enjoyable Long Lunch experience.

With the event being 'timed' winery bookings since 2018, our packages allow you to visit and savour the food and wine, music and attractions of 2 wineries during the day!

And the most attractive part being we collect from your location and return after the event - no parking worries, no waiting or trying to connect your times with a shuttle bus and most importantly not being stuck in Lovedale looking for transport (you're in the country and Taxis & Ubers are scarce and unreliable).

Which 2 wineries will you visit? It's a surprise with the wineries assigned by the Long Lunch committee the week prior. book your Long Lunch today and sit back and enjoy a day of total indulgence.


  • 1 Souvenir Wine Tasting Glass
  • 2 Main Meal tickets
  • 1 Dessert or Cheese ticket
    (Package holders will collect your LLL Vouchers & Glass on the day!)

No packages will be posted or emailed, if you have booked a Rover package the driver will have your ticket on the bus. You will then collect your vouchers & glass from the first winery on the day!
