Holidays are all about creating memories with your family and friends away from the crazy pace of modern life.
Jamestown is a great place to do exactly that!

Immerse yourself in what the locals take for granted: peaceful picnic spots on the banks of the Belalie Creek, beautiful forest walks at Bundaleer, trendy cafes with great food and coffee, and boutique retail shops.


Come on over and see why the locals love our town!

Visit interpretive centres sharing the stories of bush outfitter and outback legend RM Williams and polar explorer Sir Hubert Wilkins.

See the fully restored, rare WWI Krupp cannon, and take in Australia’s largest pressed glass collection or a vintage sewing machine display.

Eating options abound in Jamestown: freshly baked breads and pastries from Jamestown Bakery; gourmet lunches, coffee and cake at Table 4T7; juices, smoothies and tasty fresh cafe food and coffee at Bindlestick The Store, fish, chips and burgers at Tucker, as well as great pub food at the Jamestown, Commercial and Railway hotels.

Weekdays and Saturday mornings, Jamestown’s shopping precinct is thriving. Browse through a vast range of stores selling gifts, clothing, shoes, fashion accessories, quilting supplies, floral arrangements, camping gear, hardware and much more.

On weekends, check out The Depot on Irvine, an eclectic store jam-packed with local creativity, or Belalie Flowers, where you’ll find fresh flowers, garden-wares and vintage girls’ clothing.
