Next time you're passing through a country town, make a beeline for the wide verandahs and jovial atmosphere of the local pub.
It's here you'll discover the soul of a town - it's where the beer is ice-cold, yarns are spun and local legends begin.
Usually, the local pub was one of the town's first buildings and is often found on the main street.
These grand old buildings are known for their heritage architecture. Wide verandahs catch cooling breezes and are the perfect place for a cold beer.
Inside you'll find locals enjoying a bevy and catching up on the events of the day.
You might also see photos from the glory days - when country dances were the toast of the town and farmers would come from miles around to watch the local footy grudge-match.
And if you get caught up in the great pub atmosphere, book in and stay a night or two.
Many pubs offer upstairs rooms that spill out onto the balcony - a great spot to devour a hearty, cooked breakfast.
