Wandering around a wintery Oberon

June 6, 2024

Saturday, June 1, was bitterly cold heralding the start of winter, so Oberon Matters set off on an expedition to find out what was happening.

After buying the Saturday papers, a perfect place to read them in the warmth would have been one of Oberon's many cafés. Hot chocolate was the order of the day.

Hot chocolate consumed, papers read and as it was the first Saturday of the month the next stop was the Farmers' Market at the Showground.

It was still the first Saturday in June, so the next stop had to be the Oberon to Tarana Heritage Railway for a delicious morning tea of a pot of tea and some scones with jam and cream.

Right next door to the railway is the Oberon and District Museum with its fascinating collection of local memorabilia, including the not to be missed Forestry and Timber exhibit.

It must be lunch time, so something hot and filling from Griffo's on Wheels or JJG's Grill at the BP was called for.

If it's a Saturday when the Tigers are playing at home, a trip to the Leagues Club grounds is called for. Surprisingly, the Oberon weather didn't favour the home team, with the League Tag Ladies going down 10-18 and the Senior Men getting slaughtered 16-60.

Time to thaw out, and what better place to do that than with a glass of wine and some tapas to nibble at at Edmund's wine bar in the Tourist Hotel?

Still hungry, so why not a pizza?

And to end a perfect day there was karaoke at the Oberon RSL.

Never say there's nothing to do in Oberon.
