On your final day, wind down and take it easy. Start with a leisurely breakfast at one of the many cafes in town. A popular choice is Fox in the Chamber, where kids can enjoy coloring and you can take in a nostalgic view of the historical corner of town and the teal-domed Woodend Clock Tower. This tower was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War I.
After breakfast, satisfy your retail cravings by wandering along High Street. Local retail stores offer beautiful products and quality wares. Karasmatic Kids is a charming toy store that will be a hit with both young and old, while the Woodend General is a must-visit if you’re looking for a keepsake or a gift for someone special.
To cap off your three-day adventure, why not learn a new skill or create a handmade item at one of the many creative, foodie or nature workshops in the region of makers? For example, you could attend a Foraging Workshop with Mountain Gin or a spoon whittling workshop with Rundell and Rundell. Or, you could try your hand at painting with Tia Alysse or join a craft workshop at the Old Auction House in Kyneton.
If workshops aren’t your thing, explore the neighbouring township of Kyneton, which is just 10 minutes down the Calder freeway. There, you can visit the historic Kyneton Botanic Gardens and Community Park. The Kyneton Botanic Garden dates back to 1858 and boasts large, magnificent specimen trees, with 17 listed by the National Trust of Australia. And the sprawling nature-based Community Park features a ropes course, water play, fence maze, and amazing oversized swings that will spark your imagination.
Whatever you choose, Woodend offers a wealth of experiences that will leave you with unforgettable memories for a three-day family adventure.
