Your journey will take you through the oldest and most celebrated gourmet regions in Australia. Spread before you is a feast to remember and you’re invited. What about cheese, bread, and olives and specialty mustards to stuff your picnic basket? There are some of Australia’s major producers based right on your doorstep. You can sample their goods, see them at work and then take away your own favourites to enjoy later. Literally dozens of winemakers are based here too - maintaining the region's reputation, merging traditional methods with innovative practices and bringing European grape varieties to Australian palates. For example, taste the Italian-style light reds or try the delicious mead made with finest Australian honey.
Take a cycling tour and see what’s on offer or surrender to the ultimate luxury of cruising the winery trail by limousine – with plenty of stops along the way. This is living! You could almost survive on the scenery alone but you won’t be able to resist the delights of the local produce. There’s a huge selection of cafés and bistros to choose from and winery lunches are always a great option.
The Milawa Gourmet Region’s calendar of events means that in whatever month you stay, there is something for you – whether it’s a weekend for art and craft, the "Hundred Kilometre Dinner", themed feasts, bush markets or the regular, seasonal wine and food festivals.
At the end of each day’s journey, enjoy your Milawa accommodation and plan for tomorrow. You might continue along Snow Road to nearby Oxley or take a short drive west to Glenrowan. It is a fine wine region but this is also ‘Kelly Country’. You can see the places where Ned Kelly made his last stand and visit Kellyland Village to learn more.
