Emerald — 3 nights

Emerald has massive rainfall and floods every year, but it's also a place where you can drink local wine while you peruse a display of locally mined gemstones in the town's quiet center.
Explore Emerald's surroundings by going to Rubyvale (Miners Heritage & Rubyvale Observatory). There's much more to do: see human ingenuity at work at Fairbairn Dam, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanic Gardens, and make a trip to Sunflower Painting.

To see more things to do, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read our Emerald trip website.
