Why not take a short stroll along the creek path behind the town? The walk starts behind the football ground, follows the creek and crosses a little bridge at the other end.
At the end of the walk you can also climb the steps and have a view of the town from the look out and see some of the cairns/interpretive signs detailing the gold mining history of the town.
With renewed interest in Clunes, old shops which had lain empty for decades began to fill with Antique and Old Wares Shops. They're worth having a bit of a look at. You might see some unusual items.
The Bakery at Clunes is only very new, and it's doing really well. It's a cafe Bakery with seating indoors and out.
Favorite Dish: I always go for meat pies and sausage rolls (in that I'm typically Australian!)
Unless you have a car, on foot is the way to go in this small town. Walking past the historic buildings is always a nice stroll.
Clunes doesn't really have that much in the way of shopping, but I did notice this shop (yet another new one in another historic building).
These embroidered Clunes beanie hats could be just the thing right about now as the days are getting chillier....
Not to be missed, if you're a book lover! For collectors, browsers, even plenty for bargain hunters too.
Usually there are also talks by authors and workshops included. The main street is closed to traffic, so the food tents and stalls can set up. Very nice atmosphere, amongst the old buildings.
This year it's on May 1-2, 2010
Here are some photos which my mother took just after Ned Kelly filming finished (the version with Heath Ledger and Orlando Bloom in it) while they were dismantling the set and the normally ashphalted main street was still covered in dirt and gravel.
