Clare Valley had plenty on offer for Easter 2019 with markets, craft fairs, the usual race meet and more.

People flocked to the region to enjoy the long weekend break.

Clare Arts and Craft Fair was held with success on Saturday and organisers were pleased at the turn out of stallholders as well as visitors.

Held in Clare's Ennis Park, Town Hall and Barbara J Long Room it's a fair held twice a year with strong support from all.

Easter Monday saw Manoora host a market in the usual long weekend style.

Stalls filled the town's hall and spilled out onto the carpark area with plenty to see and enjoy.

Fresh bread, hot food, plants, jewellery and health products were all part of the range of items for sale.

Children (and adults alike) were also able to enjoy creating their own clay pot and decorate how they would like.

Visitors took the time to stop in and enjoy the market before making their way home from the Easter break.
