the capital of country hospitality
In the heart of cropping country, the small township of Oaklands is an absolute gem for the agricultural buff and anyone who is after the best country hospitality in the region.
Come spring, the entire town lifts with the brightest of yellow paddocks filled with canola as far as the eye can see. The town is a-buzz all year (it’s not just the bees in the canola crop), whether it’s during the football season where attending every home game is a given – rain, hail or shine – or during the late-spring harvest where you’re guaranteed to run into every farmer in the area.
Enjoy or a meal or two at the local pub or club, where the locals will happily share all the tips and tricks for seeing the best bits of the area. They’ll tell stories too – some might even be true, but all will be good natured, revealing their down-to-earth humour and generosity. The honest, hearty meals on offer at both venues are sure to leave you fully satisfied.
