The Wimmera Mail Times is proud to present the autumn edition of the Wimmera & Grampians Out & About magazine.
Autumn means balmy days of being able to head out to visit the many small towns and icons that abound in the countryside, check out a different cafe every week, sit in the sunshine or just stroll around the many clever pictures depicted on the silo arts trail.
We have given you a teaser on some of the best local icons and the stories behind them; they are world renowned and continue to help 'brand' the Wimmera and Grampians to this day.
We also take the opportunity to 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.
For a comprehensive look at all the treasures you can unearth and visit in the region, check out our online magazine here.
Swap Meets and community markets abound during this time of the year, and if you're into vintage and collectables, make sure you visit the many outlets. There is so much to see at these iconic destinations, that you need to set aside a good few hours to take it all in. And entry is free!
Horsham and the many country towns in the surrounds, has some spectacular eateries, and with our balmy autumn weather, there's no better place to plan an alfresco meal.
We're talking dining with picturesque views, from great heights, in hidden laneways and at street level amongst the action. Seriously, is there really any better way to spend our time than hanging out with family and friends, sharing a drink or a meal? No way! We're so lucky to have so many great dining options in some pretty cool spaces throughout the region.
Check out some of the magic dining options you can play with this autumn, tried and tested by locals in the know.
This is also the perfect time of year to dine alfresco, so prepare the provisions, head for one of our many shady parks, stretch out on a blanket and make a day of it.
Amid the warm afternoons and crisp mornings - there is so much to enjoy in and around the Wimmera Grampians region.
