Staying at Hotel Zed is like stepping into a time machine, except that we still have modern amenities like super-fast wifi. (Gotta post your trip from Instagrammable hotels in the world!). Pop into vintage boutique Georgie Girl for the perfect vintage outfit! Finish your retro makeover with a cut and style at Plan B Headquarters salon, just around the corner from the hotel!  Then take your new look to Pulp Fiction Coffee House for a malt or a mocha and take in their vintage-inspired pop art decor!

3.  Cuddle a roo

You don’t have to go all the way down under to meet a kangaroo! Kangaroo Creek Farm has all sorts of critters, including kangaroos and wallabies for you to meet!  Remember to check the website for admission hours, and we recommend taking advantage of the half-price Early Bird admission special!

4.  Ride the rails

While you're in the area, visit Myra Canyon Adventure Park for tree courses, ziplining, and ropes games!
