The Bendigo Advertiser is proud to present the winter edition of Out & About.
Winter in Bendigo means the leaves have turned and it's time to rug up. But that's why we love this region so much!
We have real weather, and we know all the good things that come with each change of season.
However, as tourists, visitors or enthusiastic ambassadors, there is still so much to see, do and explore.
There's never been a better time to unearth the stories behind some of the icons of the region; they are world recognised and continue to this day in helping to 'brand' us.
In this edition we also showcase some of the coolest spots to shop, eat and explore, reflecting the diverse range of specialty stores, and the flavours produced by the region's accomplished chefs and winemakers.
And did you know Out and About Magazine can be found in all regional visitor information centres and good tourist outlets? Pick one up for a great read while you're visiting.
If you're a hardy soul, then the many walks and cycling tracks will be your first port of call, but if you're more the book in front of a purring fire, then you will also find what you're looking for right here.
Enjoy the crisp mornings, and milky afternoon sunshine, as you rediscover Bendigo and the region.
