It’s time to get away for a weekend surrounded by sweeping views, good company and fine wine.
During Winter, we tend to hibernate indoors spending more time online and watching an abundance of Netflix.
Spring has sprung and now is the time to take advantage of the warmer weather and mood-boosting sunshine by exploring everything Pyrenees has to offer.
Embrace a sunnier disposition and take a trip on the wild side. It’s hard to overstate how much good nature does for our well-being. If you’re feeling a little hemmed in, nature provides a wonderful remedy. The Pyrenees is a place peppered with inspired tracks celebrating the region’s beauty. The Regions State Parks and Forests have plenty to keep you on the go with an extensive network of bushwalking trails. Mount Cole and Mount Buangor Parks are located just 1 hour out of Ballarat and are filled with lush green rainforests with stunning views, fern filled gullies and offer scenic walking trails that are dwarfed by giant ferns and towering trees.
Hop on your bike and cycle through quaint villages and along quiet country roads, taking in stunning landscapes and plenty of wildlife and farm animals along the way. Shop for local produce or stop for a picnic in picturesque surrounds. Treat yourself to a cheeky wine at one of the many cellar doors. Dine alfresco style and pair a crisp white with seasonal dishes at a winery as the vines burst back to life.
Ready to call it a night? Slip into a glamping tent for a sweet nights rest or make yourself at home in cosy lodgings on a working farm. Nothing screams country escape like waking to the sing-song of birds and the scent of native forests and freshly cut grass.
