  • This is the spot to go to on a Saturday. They have an amazing market where you can see and purchase a whole host of things from a variety of food and beverages. Is often really busy as it draws a large crowd and therefore you may have to weight in some lengthy queues but the experience is worth it, makes for a great start to the weekend. A good place for a group outing and it is also kids friendly.
  • Really great spot for a bite to eat on a Saturday morning with plenty of great choices and options. Most people would give this a five star but because it's so busy and there are many tourists it can get a bit too busy and crowded. Suggest going early for brunch and beer. Pot Luck Club do a great little breakfast here. Top tip!
  • A trendy place with some very trendy and stunning restaurants. We had lunch at the Pot Luck restaurant and what an AMAZING experience. Interesting food that tantalizes the tastebuds.
  • There are numerous interesting little shops. It would appeal very well to tourists. It is very trendy so if that is not your scene, best not to visit. The parking is extremely expensive. We went to hint hunt, which was good fun
  • I loved the Old Biscuit Mill! Great food, coffee, and shopping. Great vibe and amazing food. Just make sure you park in a safe place!
