On your way to Jindivick
If you're coming from Melbourne, drop south of the M1 to the C433 (Nar Nar Goon - Longwarry Rd) running alongside the train line and quaint railway towns. Wander the streetscapes to take in the murals of Nar Nar Goon, adorning cafes, butchers, antique shops and even the CFA.
Next, head to the village of Garfield. If you're in need of refuelling, Little Miss Hangry is your cosy brunch go-to. This converted cottage is drenched in character. The dining rooms overlook an umbrella-clad courtyard with cottage garden, replete with marigold-filled window boxes.
Walk to the Garden at Broughton Hall get amazed with vibrant flower beds are strewn with the occasional artichoke or fennel bulb
Browsing the main street
Wander under the charming verandahs stretching over the footpath as you browse the main street. Ooh and ahh over Impodimo's floor-to-ceiling displays of homewares, jewellery and gifts (we want one of everything). Head to SOHL Store for stylish threads at the on-trend boutique clothing shop or hit Lulu's Lollyshop for a nostalgic sugar rush.
Step through a wormhole into Lady Lavender's Tea Room (Bunyip), bursting with old world charm. The instantly-inviting tea room is heaving with antiques and classic china, overlooking the lavender-hued grounds. Delight in tiered stands of scrumptious baked goods, fluffy scones or homestyle pot pies. Be sure to check out the onsite gift shop and nursery.
Located just over an hours drive from Melbourne, Sherwood Park Orchard is the ideal place to stop, relax and recharge the whole family
On your way back
Indulge in a treatment at Brandy Creek Estate Day Spa for facials, massage, foot spas and even a Turkish Hammam. We recommend a package that includes tapas and wine from the onsite winery restaurant.
If your getaway happily coincides with the last Sunday of the month, head to the Bunyip Makers Market for craft goods, from crocheted baby clothes and cushions, to quilts and wooden toys.
Swing by Sherwood Park Orchard & Bakery Cafe. You can pick your own apples from the orchard (in season). The farmhouse cafe has freshly baked goodies, and shelves lined with juices, jams, sauces, eggs and crisp seasonal fruit from the orchard.
