Lazy Weekends in Exeter are for …

Things to do in Exeter, Southern Highlands

🍰  Treating yourself to delicious eat ins and takeaways at bustling Exeter General Store. It’s the local café, meeting place, post office, general store and second hand bookstore and has plenty of outdoor seating too for families and pooches to enjoy that winter sun at the minute.

👜  Shopping up a storm at the fun and stylish Quintessential Exeter boutique⁣ for fashion and homewares, which is set in one of the oldest and sweetest weatherboard buildings in the village.

🍷  Tasting beautiful cool climate wines at pretty local vineyards St Maur Wines and Cuttaway Hills Wines both set on rolling farmland and just a short drive out of Exeter village.

🗝 Rambling about Village Pump Antiques, a treasure trove where you never know what you’ll find.

🚂  Discovering the photogenic and heritage listed Exeter Station⁣ which sits in the centre of town – it dates back to 1878 and is said to be the highest point on the Sydney to Melbourne rail line. If it’s historic walls could talk!

🕍  Exploring St Aidan’s Church, grounds and classic Exeter Oval⁣ and Hall opposite. This precinct really adds to the charm of the village. St Aidans is still in use, was dedicated in the 1890’s, has a beautiful Celtic cross and is rock solid (made from local sandstone and basalt). The Hall and classic Oval are hubs for many community events too.

🎾  Feeling sporty and soaking up some rays by booking a spot of Croquet at Southern Highlands Croquet Club or Tennis⁣ at Exeter Tennis Club – both beside Exeter Oval.

🚴🏿 Meandering, walking or cycling the quiet country lanes in the village and around town, and making four footed friends in the nearby paddocks.

🍊 Supporting talented local producers and makers at ever popular Exeter Village Market the first Saturday morning each month.
