Visit the local IGA Supermarket, self-cater, bring back a "take away pack" or order a substantial "Continental Breakfast Basket" of supplies. "Dine in" or "eat out" from Breakfast onwards at the many and varied eateries in Clunes or the surrounding towns of Ballarat, Daylesford, Hepburn Springs, Creswick, Maryborough or Talbot.
