Walk 'N' Talk

At home + Plan ahead

Australia's Local Hero for 2021 has encouraged people to get out and meet their neighbours, so here's your chance. Walk 'n' Talk for Life aims to connect people with their community to help with mental health and prevent suicide. It's a positive way to help people who are struggling. The next event will be on March 13, so head to the Oberon Common, grab a free yellow t-shirt and join in. There will be a free sausage sandwich after the stroll. Oberon Common at 1pm, March 13, May 8 and September 4.

Farmers' Market

At home

Head to the Oberon Showground on the first Saturday of the month to pick up home-made and home-grown goodies, including food, cakes, crafts, plants, wine and cheese. You'll find offerings change with the season, which is half the fun. It's a great way to support local producers. Oberon Showgrounds, February 6 am-1pm.
