There are so many fun things to do in the region this week, many of which are free, and we’ve made a list of nine of our top picks.

If you want to get outdoors, several tennis courts will be free to hire and play at around the region, and there’s a cycling carnival, a farm tour, a car show and a market to enjoy.

If you feel like staying indoors, there are several live music performances to watch, as well as an Australian dance party and a music festival for country, blues, folk, rock, pop, R&B and reggae fans.

What do you feel like doing?
