Wangaratta & Surrounds

GLENROWAN - THE CENTRE OF THE NED KELLY LEGEND - THE DISCOVERIES ARE LIMITLESS. From world class, awardwinning wines and a celebration of regional produce to mountainous countryside, internationally renowned cycling experiences, valleys, rivers and streams - the only hard part is deciding what to do first. Although you’d need to stay quite a while to see all the sights (and taste all the flavours), you can still pack plenty into a weekend away or a short visit. There are accommodation options to suit any size party and budget right throughout the region. Choose from country guest houses, conveniently located motels, indulgent bed & breakfasts, countryside cottages, quiet retreats and plenty of camping spots.

Before visiting, be sure to find out what’s happening around the region. Wangaratta hosts a number of festivals and events that celebrate music, art, food and, of course, wine. Wine lovers and general pleasure seekers flock to the region every year to sip, swill and savour at numerous wineries. A favourite is undoubtedly the well-known Brown Brothers Vineyard at Milawa with its stately setting, while many boutique wineries offer intimate yet equally rewarding experiences. The cycling opportunities are second to none with the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail along with road and mountain bike experiences in the nearby Warby Ovens National Park.


For travel advice, maps, suggestions and guidance on what to do and when, start your journey with a quick visit to the Wangaratta Visitor Information Centre in Murphy Street, Wangaratta. Choose from a huge selection of travel brochures or ask one of our friendly tourism staff for recommendations and directions.

NOT JUST GOOD COFFEE .... GREAT COFFEE With over twenty cafe’s and restaurants within Wangaratta’s CBD alone you are spoilt for choice.

When it comes to a cafe culture rivaling many Melbourne suburbs, Wangaratta provides both the variety and caffeine fix for those who take their coffee seriously to those who simply like the friendly atmosphere and buzz of a vibrant cafe scene.

The picturesque and bountiful King Valley is located at the foothills of the Alpine National Park, surrounded by mountains, rivers and home to the spectacular Lake William Hovell. Discover a region rich in heritage, with a passion for celebrating the Italian spirit - especially when it comes to wine, festivities and food. The strong Italian culture further permeates the valley with most wineries and eateries offering up delicious homemade fare and local produce - from the rustic charm of the Moyhu Hotel through to the Mountain View Hotel in Whitfield - local produce is the hero on the menu’s. Travelling through the region midweek, drop into the Moyhu Hotel and join the locals for their weekly Wednesday night Pot & Parma. Alternatively, the Mountain View Hotel is a popular gastro-pub offering two dining experiences - a more formal experience, or a counter style meal by the open fire or in the beautiful beer garden.

For something more casual, the eclectic Whitty Café serves fine coffee and is a great place to refuel for breakfast or lunch. A one stop shop for everything from milk and Milawa bread to fishing gear, ice, newspapers, local small goods and seasonal produce - is the Cheshunt Store. Open 7 days a week, this little gem serves up one of the best burgers in the region (as Rex Hunt apparently says!). Enroute to Lake William Hovell and Mount Cobbler - its the perfect spot to stock up on all your picnic goodies before heading off for the day to explore the region.

A LITTLE PATCH OF ITALY Whorouly was originally home to many Italian migrant settlers who

established thriving farms in the fertile river flats. The La Spina family have a long standing connection here and their farmgate operates daily from 9am throughout the year where you can pick up seasonal fruit, vegies, nuts, condiments and of course their famous capsicum sauce for those who enjoy making their own Salami! The Whorouly Hotel prides itself on serving up tender steaks to bangers & mash. The cook keeps the local butcher on his toes who in-turn goes out of his way to provide the biggest beef schnitzel! Stop by for a pot in the beer garden and have a chat to the locals who can offer you tips and hints on the best fishing spots. The Two Cooks Cafe offers quality produce and warm service as well as great coffee or specialty tea, a bistro style snack or a rustic country meal.

Folklore has it that Ned Kelly helped the Bailey family plant their first vines, and since then the ensuing 130 years of winemaking has established the region’s reputation for full-bodied reds, fragrant whites and fortifieds.

You’ll find more than just grapes and refreshing beer - there are also several fruit orchards and growers producing nectarines, cherries, strawberries and peaches, pick your own during harvest season.

The century old, Taminick Cellars has been owned by the Booth family since the beginning of last century.

COCK’S DREDGE In 1936 production of Cock’s large bucket dredge began, mining alluvial gold and tin until 1954. It was one of the largest dredges in the Southern

Hemisphere – a floating monster weighing 2,142 tons and pulling the third most power from the State Electricity Grid after Melbourne and Geelong. In its 18 years of operation the dredge produced 70,664 ounces of gold and 1,383 tons of tin concentrate. To find out more and download maps for El Dorado and the Woolshed Valley visit: www.eldorado.org.au or www.eldoradomuseum.com Today the dredge remains a formidable sight and graphically illustrates the extent of the mining operation in and around the town.

Now, there’s another great way to finish off a High Country day of touring wineries, savouring local fare, hitting the Rail Trail for a leisurely cycle or feeling the exhilaration of a downhill mountain bike track (as you’ll find many of our thrill-seeking brewers do!) - and that’s kicking back with a cool ale and drink it all in.

Vineyard, but he also happens to be the genius behind Beechworth Cider. Made from locally grown and picked with love apples - the cider is about as real as it gets. After all, as Ben says - ‘life is complicated enough so we have kept Beechworth Cider simple’. Fresh locally grown apples, a little spritz and a lot of thought. It’s worth stopping by Amulet to savour a taste of this local treasure.

Not only does the region herald some crisp refreshing ales from Blackdog Brewery & Buffalo Brewery but also some fun loving, young characters brewing these treasurers.

Most restaurants, providores or liquor stores such as the Pinsent Hotel in Wangaratta sell these local beauties. When dining out or hitting a local hotel for a refreshing afternoon beverage - be sure to sample something local and join the following of ale sipping, cider loving High Country fans.
