What's on in June
The start of winter usually signifies a time of rugging up and finding excuses to stay indoors where it’s warm yet with the recent introduction of eased COVID-19 restrictions, many of us are itching to find ways to safely get out of the house. Read on to hear what’s happening in our local Geelong community to be enjoyed in June.
Explore Buckley Falls Lookout
We’re extremely lucky in Gen Fyansford to have no shortage of incredible nature escapes surrounding us. One of our favourites is the Buckley Falls Lookout just opposite Fyansford’s iconic Old Paper Mills. Discover the perfect route for a long family walk or silent solo adventure basking in the peace of flowing water.
Catch up with friends at the local pub
Our good friends and neighbours at The Fyansford Hotel have excitedly been awaiting the day they can welcome you back to their kitchen and from 1 June, they will now be offering in-store service. Call 5221 6654 for more information or visit their website here to learn how you can bring the pub home with their comfort meals still available for takeaway.
Get lost in a good book
In line with recent Victorian Government regulations, all Geelong Regional Libraries will be reopening from Tuesday 9 June. This means you can safely visit any of your local branches or mobile libraries to pick up a new literature adventure. Branches will be operating with shorter opening hours to ensure public safety remains a priority but if you don’t feel like venturing out, the library’s digital resources remain open, providing access to various eBooks, audiobooks, activities for children, TV and movie streaming services, digital newspapers and magazines, plus much more! Simply click here to view what you can access from home. To view the new operating hours, please click here.
Warm your stomach with delicious food
Popular local eatery Rook, which specialises in Sri Lankan fusion, is opening up an additional day of takeaway dinner service from June 1, meaning you can now order all your favourite curries Thursday through to Saturday evening to enjoy at home. Neighbouring cafe Ebony & Ivory will also be reopening for dine-in service with up to 20 people allowed in-store at once. Tables can be booked by calling 5221 6072.
