The North Eastern area out of Melbourne is uniquely charming. Encompassing areas such as Kinglake, Alexandra, Marysville and Yea, the quiet stillness of these enchanting country towns is a refreshing change, even if just for the day.
When we're heading out for a drive, we enjoy the destination of a particular event, such as a market. Luckily, there are a handful of regular markets around the Murrindindi (Hume) area worth noting. Here is the current list to mark on your calendar.
