ENJOYING the great outdoors can be a great option for those on a strict budget with plenty to see and do around Timboon.
If adventure is your game then why not hire a bike from Ride With Us and take the scenic view back to town.
Simply hop on the V/Line train to Camperdown and take in the beautifully lush landscape as you travel 40km back along the rail trail.
The trail will take you along natural watercourses where there are plenty of places to pull up and enjoy the view.
If a slow-cation is more your speed, then pack a picnic and head along to the Power Creek Nature Reserve, just a short distance from the CBD.
Boasting a peaceful rest area with tables beside the creek, the reserve is the perfect place for the whole family to to sit back and relax.
Enjoy a stroll along the walking tracks while being surrounded by nature and keep an eye out for a koala and kangaroo or two.
Finish off the day with a trip to the much-loved Timboon Fine Ice Cream shop.
Owned and operated by third generation dairy farmer Tim Marwood and Caroline Simmons, the ice creamery offers a smorgasbord of flavours, lovingly made from fresh milk from the Doolan's family farm down the road and fresh cream from Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory.
For those staying overnight, campers are welcome at a number of recreation parks and campgrounds close to town.
