Australians love wine, and that’s no secret. The Aussie Wine Month celebrates the world-class wine produced in their own backyards every year for over six years now. It offers a wide range of events and promotions that will be held all over the cities and regional towns across the whole country. Take note though: during these times, it might be quite difficult to commute, especially along the areas where huge events are taking place. Make sure to secure your car hire in Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sunshine Coast, Adelaide, and Dandenong, so you could easily drive from one event to another.
Listed below are some of the events that you can attend during the whole month of May:
