Could anyone give us some tips on small country towns within an hour or two of Canberra that are worth making the effort to visit? We are looking for great little country pubs, unique shopping experiences, B&B’s, restaurants etc.
We recently moved to the ACT from Sydney and are really enjoying exploring the region!
Thanks for the recent tips following our first post here. I was actually trying to find a shop selling 50′s style pin-up and rockabilly dresses for my wife. Replies to the post took us to Braidwood for the first time and a superb little shop called Hoola Hoop www.hoolahoop.com.au that sells just that type of thing. We had a great time and really loved the town.
Are there any other little towns in the region that might offer such unique little shops. More tips from locals will be greatly appreciated!
