Summer is here and so is the opportunity to be out and about exploring in north east Victoria and southern NSW. With the borders now open it's the ideal time to hit the road and visit your favourite, or some new, places.
The regions surrounding Albury Wodonga are filled with a stunning range of attractions, scenery and destinations and with international travel off the list it's the right time to get to know your 'backyard' a little better.
In the Summer edition of Out and About we feature places such as Shepparton, Canberra, Narrandera and Towong. Discover two brilliant breweries - one in Beechworth and one high up in the hills at Crackenback near Jindabyne, NSW - where it's more than just beer that is on offer.
Out and About Magazine is designed to let you know about places you can visit now, or put on your list for the summer holidays. In this edition we highlight two unique events - the 50 day festival of Tumburumba and the Art in Agriculture exhibition being held in Albury.
Tumbarumba's 'Arbour Festival' will see fifty days of art installations, workshops and events based around the Pilot Hill Arboretum, between Tumbarumba and Batlow - a stunning site that miraculously survived the 2019 Dunn's Road fires. Read more in the summer edition here
