You are living here and learning the language, but sometimes we also need some time off, right? Leave Melbourne behind this weekend and relax at the Bright Autumn Festival. It's a ten day celebration of the wonderful autumn colours and autumn produce of the valleys of Victoria's Alpine High Country. It's on from April 26 to May 5, 2019 and includes a market, music in the streets, the Wandi Nut Festival, Open Gardens and the Autumn Art Exhibition at the Bright Art Gallery.
Held in the township of Bright, Victoria, 3741.
Or, if leaving town is not what you can do this weekend, try the Kellybrook Cider Festival. This is the best weekend to enjoy Scrumpy Cider and listen to live bands, under the great oak of Kellybrook Gardens. It's a celebration of the end of the apple harvest and is set in the historic gardens and vineyards at Kellybrook's Wonga Park property. Local produce is available and there is a strong focus on families. Saturday and Sunday 4th and 5th May, 11am - 5pm. $22 adults, kids free.
