10 things to do when you visit Warragul
Moving to Warragul from the City and suburbs may feel like a big change but once you’re here, you’ll never look back. The pace is different. Good different.
You can still get all the things you need and you have more time to just be.
We know you’ll love living here. Pop down for a visit and see what you think…and if you are coming, here are a few things we think will help you get a feel for the place:
- Head into Frankies for a little energy boost – it’s a vibrant and busy café with a huge menu and fantastic coffee BUT it can be a little noisy so if you prefer the quiet you can pop over the road to the Grange, a lovely local café and provedore. To be honest, you’re spoiled for choice for a good coffee here and the chai at Main Street is next level.
- Plan ahead and book into a cooking class at String + Salt. A great way to meet people and get accustomed to using all the fantastic local produce you’ll be enjoying!
- If you don’t cook but you want to experience local food, book in for lunch or dinner at the acclaimed one hat restaurant – Hogget’s Kitchen. Let Trevor and his team blow your mind with their delicious food and award-winning wine list.
- One of the loveliest places to visit in town is free – our Civic Park. Located next the the fabulous West Gippsland Arts Centre, this park is full of beautiful mature trees and is a place the whole family can enjoy.
- Stop into the Arts Centre and grab a guide to what’s on there. You might be surprised at the calibre of entertainment coming into Warragul on a regular basis.
- Depending on your stage of life, you might want to book in for a school tour or visit one of the many early learning centres and daycare options.
- Pick up the local paper from any supermarket or newsagency. The Warragul Drouin Gazette comes out every Tuesday and is a wonderful weekly dive into what’s happening locally. Independently owned, there’s a reason why the Gazette is still going.
- If you’re wandering the streets looking at what’s on offer, head up to the top of town to our local bottleshop The Press Cellars. Their range and knowledge is second to none and if you don’t mind a drink, you’ll love getting to know the crew there. Friday night tastings are another way to meet like-minded people.
- If you walk past the beautiful historic Courthouse, pop your head in for a great meal, delicious coffee or a drink in the shady Garden Bar. It’s the place to be on a warm Summer night and you can often enjoy live music and more.
- Every third Saturday we have a fantastic Farmers’ Market in Civic Park and it is definitely worth a visit. You’ll be there every month, rain hail or shine, loving the fresh local food and community atmosphere.
