Whether you’re staying near or far to home, there’s something happening to keep your weekend and week busy in our region.

On the NSW South Coast, head to a weekend-long conference about issues to the area as a result of the Black Summer bushfires. Or listen to Out of Abingdon perform at Tathra, or meet the brewers from Stoic Brewing at Tilba.

If you like wine, there will be cellar door tastings at Kingsdale Wines near Goulburn, or you can experience music at Chant du Vin festival at Vintner’s Daughter in Murrumbateman.

There are also markets happening, including The Queanbeyan Hive & Seek Markets, and Boorowa Makers and Growers Community Markets on Saturday, 22 May.

Want to experience something different? There’s an electric vehicle showcase in Cooma, and The Little Yellow House Gallery grand opening in Wagga Wagga.

Have a great week, everyone!
