Narre Warren for next to nicks

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Local Flavor.”

When in Narre Warren/ Berwick area, there are a few special spots to go, the locals all know them, but they are not necessarily spots visitors get told about.You could easily spend at least 1 if not 2 days here,there is that much to do! And the best part, most of these are free or quite cheap, you can spend money if you wish, but just turning up and wandering around costs next to nothing!

Wilson Botanical Park – very pretty spot to go for a walk, you can even take your dogs (as long as they are kept on a leash), feed the ducks etc, free entry.

The Campbelltown Miniature Railway fun for the whole family, rustic and basic, but a great spot for the kids (big and little) and an old fashioned picnic lunch. There are no fancy cafes or souvenir shops to lure children into spending money either. Free entry, train ride approx $6.00.

Akuna Park Market – held every Sunday, Trash and Treasure, fresh fruits and veg, bric a brac and craft wares, great spot to wander around on a Sunday Morning.

Old Cheese Factory Farmers Market – Once a month (usually 2nd Sunday of each month) they hold a Farmers Market at The Old Cheese Factory, all sorts of organic fruit & veg, jams & Pickles, bread, and cakes and all sorts of other goodies can be found.

Grant’s Picnic Ground – is a terrific little spot to go for a picnic or bush walk, there is native wild bird feeding (at a cost) as well, or sit back and watch other people feed the birds, quite entertaining as well.

Narre North Bakery – Best Sausage Rolls and Steak and Bacon pie in the area, good coffee too, as well as the usual raft of bakery items. At Christmas they make to order fabulous Gingerbread Houses and Christmas Cakes!

Myuna Farm – $7.00pp (under 1 free) pony and train rides additional. Public Community farm with all sorts of farm animals for kids to see. They also do Birthday Parties and Social Events.

Royal Botanic Gardens – Cranbourne, great spot to wander around for keen gardeners or photographers. Plenty to see and do
