In the heart of Central Victoria and nestled between the stunning McHarg and McIvor Ranges, you will find the charming town of Heathcote.
Established in the 1850s after gold was discovered in the area, Heathcote is now known globally for another precious gem – the Shiraz grape! Fast becoming one of Australia’s most loved wine regions, Heathcote is an ideal place to slow down, get back to basics and appreciate the view.
Enjoy unique accommodation: from five-star offerings through to farms stays or pretty camping grounds and indulge in the delicious produce, food and wine options to be found in the area.
Spectacular landscapes allow you to truly take in the great outdoors, be it a picnic in the forest, or a walk or ride along the picturesque O’Keefe Rail Trail. Spend some time fishing, boating, skiing or swimming at Lake Eppalock or perhaps appreciate some of the many great historical sites in and around the township.
Beautiful gold rush era architecture lines the main street where you can also enjoy a great cup of coffee, sweet boutiques, good food and, of course, some wine tasting.
Throughout the year, find fabulous festivals and events offering the perfect chance to meet the friendly residents, taste the great local produce and see why Heathcote is one of the best, and most beautiful, places in the world.
