4 Ways To Spend An Arvo Away From The City


  1. Take your taste buds to the Moorabool Valley for wine tasting at some of Australia’s most awarded wineries, eat cheese from foodie-favourite Meredith Dairy and finish with hand made chocolates from Moorabool Valley Chocolates by Design. 
  2. Walk up a sweat by hiking to the top of the You Yangs to look out from Flinders Peak or a walk through the Brisbane Ranges National Park where you might see koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, possums, sugar gliders and up to 170 species of birds.
  3. Head to Pakington Street (or as the locals call it, ‘Pako’) for boutique shopping, great cafes and, right down at the river end there’s a real creative precinct with Boom Gallery at the heart – a great schedule of exhibitions, a wonderfuly quirky gift shop, a cafe and now the Boom Workroom with hands on workshops and crafty lessons.
  4. See how Geelong’s been reinvented up close in what was an industrial heartland in North Geelong.  Former factories and warehouses are now vintage shops, quirky (and seriously good) cafes, museums and monuments to world-class street art. Check out Geelong Vintage Market, How Bazaar, Pickers Union and Geelong Museum of Motoring and Geelong
