Another weekend upon us and even though winter is well on the way there are still some great things to do in this fabulous region of ours. This week is a vast snapshot of things going on and I have no doubt there is going to be something for everyone in this overview of great places to go and things to do!
National Wool Museum is always offering really interesting exhibitions as well as a fascinating journey back into history. Until 27 June the “Our Water Exhibition” will be on displaying 28 hands on exhibits designed to investigate water from an urban, agricultural, industrial and environmental perspective. It will display the consequences of the different uses and reuses of water in Australia. It wasn’t that long ago we were in terrible drought conditions, I think we all need to be mindful that this could well happen at any time again.
GPAC has some fantastic live shows coming our way: from Elmo’s world tour for the kids, to Class of 59, Rock around Australia tour for the rockers out there, to some amazing music talent such as INXS, Missy Higgins, Guy Sebastian and David Campbell. Don’t miss out either on the annual GSODA Junior Players production “Dick Whittington”. Call 5225 1200 for bookings for any of those events and more.
Market Square is running some great June Activities: Spend $20 at Market Square over June and go in the running for a weekend on the Gold Coast watching The Cats VS The Suns. 19th June brings the highly talented Belmont High School 23 piece band to the stage at Market Square Shopping Centre and is a must see before they head off to Sydney Opera House.
One place that I feel has an absolute mystery and intrigue about it particularly in winter is Cape Otway Light Station. It’s rugged coastline and the lighthouse itself, which is the oldest lighthouse in Australia dating back to 1848, is definitely worth a visit. May – October also brings Whale Watching in that region, so is yet another reason to visit.
Otherwise winter markets on this weekend are:
Saturday – Torquay Central Market which is on Saturday weekly, all year.
Golden Plains Market in Bannockburn is a real treat and a once monthly market.
Sunday brings the Point Lonsdale Primary School Market.
If your heading offshore and onto Peninsula Searoad Ferry then you must book in prior for the very popular high tea.
On that note, I might just make a cup of tea and plan our weekend ahead…..
