Surrounded by the rugged D’Aguilar, Conondale and Great Dividing ranges, the Somerset region is a sanctuary for native flora and fauna and a place where you can truly get back to nature.
Experience an assortment of cafes and restaurants throughout the villages, or be tempted with award winning regional wines and cellar door sales and dining experiences from our local wineries.
Somerset hosts a comprehensive array of events year round, including country race days, charity rodeos, campdrafts, cattle sales, aviation extravaganzas, skydiving and music festivals, fun runs, fishing competitions and more.
Our rural heritage also delivers an interesting artistic perspective merging realistic pieces with modern techniques and fresh interpretations of our spectacular scenery. Murals, statues, memorials and weekend street markets present Somerset arts and crafts year round, while art galleries provide a wide range of works to view.
