Sadly our visit coincided with most of the shops being closed but what we saw and explored was absolutely fascinating, a wonderful collection of old wooden buildings from a bygone era settled on the site of an old sawmills amongst great woods

Despite the monsoon rains it was interesting to wander around this charming collection of historic wooden buildings although not everything was open. The steam museum and main museum were open and well worth a look.

Quaint little town. Markets only small, but nice to get out of the city. Very relaxed atmosphere, nice brekky, pub on location if you feel like something stronger. Close to Dayboro, Mt Mee and Oceanview, so make a day of it
