Discover Your Local Goulburn Valley Area
The Goulburn Valley is one of regional Victoria’s most prestigious wine regions. With so many vineyards in the region, which one do you choose to visit?
For starters, a visit to the Tahbilk Winery and Vineyard is a must. This is the oldest vineyard in Australia. Taste all the white, Shiraz and chardonnay you desire! The area, and the vineyard in particular, also grow fresh seasonal fruits like apples and pears, the perfect complement to your afternoon of wine tasting.
Mitchelton Winery, right on the edge of the Goulburn Valley is an easily accessible destination from central Melbourne. The vineyard poses the perfect escape from the city for a weekend of wine, food and relaxation. If you still have some time up your sleeve, St Anne’s Vineyard and Cape Horn Winery are also local winery attractions worth a visit within the Goulburn Valley region.
The attractions of the Goulburn Valley don’t stop at vineyards! The Goulburn Valley is a region of lush green hills, forests, rivers and lakes. There is a world of experiences just waiting to happen – whether you feel like a leisurely stroll through plains and vineyards or you’re feeling up to canoeing down the Goulburn River. As all towns within the region possess their own unique natural beauty, it is hard to single out just one. Alexandra and Buxton are both small towns surrounded by welcoming rolling hills, greenery and rivers, whilst Kerrisdale and Strath Creek villages present spectacular views over the valley from the adjoining State Forest. Don’t forget Shepparton – the city is the most populated in the Goulburn Valley region and is a flourishing agricultural area. Did you know SPC and Campbell Soups are made here in Shepparton?
