Each year on the Queen’s birthday weekend (first Sat in June), thousands of people take to the streets in Bruns for the Old&Gold Festival. The entire town becomes one giant treasure trove, with 80-odd garage sales, four dedicated precincts, and several local retro shops all selling second-hand and vintage pieces ranging from buttons to boats. It’s a great atmosphere with everyone zig-zagging through the streets on foot or on bicycles, toting armfuls of bargains. There’s loads of entertainment throughout the day, including the Australian Schools Marbles Championship.
