Don’t think a small country town can possibly be a shoppers’ heaven? Don’t bet on it! Drive, catch a bus or taxi to experience some of the most unique shops in Australia. Walk down Dobbins Lane for Colour Me Crazy, a shop with uncountable bright colours in ranges from jewellery to clothing and soft furnishings. Across the lane are beautiful garden pots and art. There’s also a kitchen lover’s paradise just for foodies who love cooking up a storm. It also runs classes in everything from cheese making to cake decorating and even school holiday kids’ classes. Call or email for details. Lots more to do while there - from pub lunches to chic coffee and more - are on pages 38-40.
The main regional centre has all the major outlets plus unique fashion in the city heart. Worth a day away combined with a few hours at the marina, strolling along the river and much more. See pages 44-47.
