Stock up and fill up

Time your visit to coincide with the famous farmers' market held on the third Sunday of the month. Boasting more than 100 stalls and up to 2000 people stopping by each month, it's the place to stock up on everything from organic produce, local honey and olives to continental cakes and home-made cheeses.

Bowse for vintage clothing and collectables in local specialty stores, find that rare hardback in a local second-hand bookshop, and then finish the day with a sumptuous dinner at one of the local eateries or family run wineries. While you're in the area, be sure to sample the elegant, cool climate wines at Amherst Winery, winner of a 5-star winery rating in James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion.

Park life

If you're more of an outdoor type, head out to the Paddys Ranges State Park in the Pyrenees Ranges. Here you'll find a wide variety of local flora and fauna including the rare Swift parrot, wallabies, kangaroos and echidnas as well as Quartz Mountain, a massive quartz outcrop. Visit during the springtime and be amazed by the wildflowers. Over 230 species have been recorded in the area including 30 different kinds of orchids.
