Drive through Kongwak and sneeze and you may miss it, that's if, it's not Sunday!
It is set in a huge shed filled with books and rooms of retro clothing, however, there are outdoor stalls and hand made items, all undercover (of sorts, some was pretty funny actually) so it is on in all weather.
I meandered along buying a few jars of home made jams and some herbs, determined I didn't need any clothes or shoes, alas at just $15 per pair, not one but 2 pairs made it home with me, both near new. In this picture to the right you can see one of the pairs that are now mine - 2nd row from the top, far right hand side, red shoes - all mine now.
Kongwak is a 2 hour drive from Melbourne down the Monash Freeway (125 km) to Korumburra and then right onto the Korumburra Wonthaggi Road.
Kongwak is nestled between Inverloch and Korumburra. The small market has a diverse range of stall-holders, which exemplify the town's relaxed and happy atmosphere.
For those that wish to make a weekend of it, there is a reserve covering the hill to the back of Kongwak where you will find several walking tracks through the stands of tall gum trees.
The fun history of Kongwak states it lies in a valley, the valley of peace, and hints at the remnants of a more abundant past represented by the old butter factory and general store. Kongwak Post Office opened on 11 May 1898.
The land around Kongwak was largely cleared and is now mainly used for agriculture, including dairying.
