Looking forward to Autumn

Did you see this brilliant mini magazine in today's Age?
Showcasing the Daylesford- Macedon region, the magazine highlights  the countryside, local producers & businesses of the region.  There is also a lovely piece titled "nature's bounty" written by Kate from "Foxs Lane".

Autumn is the time for festivals in the region, including a couple I visited  2 years ago- Trentham Spudfest, this year on May 5 (lots of amazing colours & shapes of heirloom spuds, and the BEST hot jam donuts I have ever eaten!); and the fascinating "Lost Trades Fair" held in Kyneton 10-11 March.

(2016 Lost Trades Fair)

There is also a comprehensive calendar of all events, markets etc. in the region during Autumn. 

I think I might have to plan some family road trips!


  1. Autumn is the best time for roadtripping! I would love to go to the Lost Trades Fair but I don't think I could deal with the crowds of people, unfortunately. Spudfest sounds like a lot of fun, too!

    1. I was thinking of you and your love of road trips Katie when I read the list of events coming up!!! There seemed to be crowds heading in and out of the Lost Trades fair ( I think we got there after lunch? Yes- We ate a picnic lunch in the car park before going in) and because there was so much to see, it actually wasn't crowded as you could spread out and just wander around ( and my family aren't big on crowds either)

  2. Great thanks. Saw the lost trades fair on facebook. Spudfest would be great - an old friend of mine has a potato farm up that way.


Hi, thanks for dropping by. Questions? comments? Write a note here - so I know if anyone actually reads my ramblings!
