As the cool winds arrive and the chill mornings creep up, it is time to explore some different ways to enjoy the Wimmera and Grampians.
While there will still be sunny days to enjoy your favourite outdoor getaways, you may find there are times you would like to explore options for entertainment indoors.
Lucky for you, the Wimmera and Grampians are well equipped with exciting activities and events throughout the colder months to keep you on your toes.
First stop, cellar doors.
Often the wineries of the region, recently showcased at the Grampians Grape Escape, experience slow times during the winter months, so this is a good opportunity to side-step the crowds and try your favourite labels away from the rush.
You can taste old favourites, experience new vintages and take the opportunity to nibble on some of the region's delicious local produce.
Visit the visitor information centres near you for some of the best locations to stop. Looking to get out of the cold?
Take advantage of the exciting exhibition and performances scheduled at the regional art galleries and performance centres.
Horsham Town Hall's new theatre space, launched earlier this year, will be hosting performances from opera to ballet and even large-scale puppet theatre.
It is the perfect time to explore the indoors while the weather outside is inhospitable.
It is also a great time for a car trip, so get behind the wheel and experience some of the wonderful smaller centres around the region. You will be pleasantly surprised at the variety and different activities on offer.
Do not lock yourself away this winter.
A wealth of activities and events are waiting to entertain you this season.
