Whether it’s the flat lands and lakes or the spectacular nearby Ranges, one thing is for sure: both regions of the Strathbogie Shire are connected by an open spirit of its people and places.
Within an easy 90 minute drive of Melbourne, you can be standing by the shore of one of Australia’s most scenic places to go fishing, water skiing, rowing or canoeing.
Lake Nagambie is also home to a nationally renowned rowing and canoeing venue which regular hosts State and National championships.
Yet only fifteen minutes away the Strathbogie Ranges offers a dramatic landscape with breathtaking views around every corner. Rugged granite-topped hills punctuated by thick stands of pristine bush accommodate an abundance of wildlife.
The picturesque towns and villages dotted throughout the region provide another great reason to stay. Avenel, Euroa, Longwood, Strathbogie, Ruffy, Boho and Violet Town each boast their own great old pubs, beautiful gardens, galleries, museums antique shops cafes and lovely old buildings.
And let’s not forget some of Victoria’s leading wineries and cellar doors.
Big skies. Big landscape. Big hearts.
An Open Spirit.
It’s why we love the place. And we’re sure you will too.
