Howlong: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Howlong Historic Trail

The Howlong Historic Trail consists of 28 locations and is a 13.3 kilometre circuit.

The history of Howlong dates back to 1836 when Major Thomas Mitchell established his camp on the southern bank of the river. Crossing to the northern side he observed gig wheel tracks where white settlers had ventured before. The town was surveyed in its present formation in 1856 with ten streets from east to west and ten streets from north to south, bounded by the Black Swan anabranch of the Murray River.

A detail map and information can be collected from the Howlong Community Resource Centre or from the Corowa Visitor Information Centre.

The Wicked Virgin and Calico Town Wines

The Wicked Virgin and Calico Town Wines are located at Rutherglen, just two kilometres from the Rutherglen Post Office.

Take the opportunity to visit and taste Extra Virgin Olive Oils, Olives, Tapenades and Calico Town Wines.

Their Cellar Door is ideally situated to relax with grand coffee and homemade cakes or enjoy a delicious, leisurely lunch outdoors on warmer days, or inside with the pot belly stove to keep you snug.

Olives and grapes are grown and processed on the property. Grapes are harvested by hand toward the end of summer; a pleasant and very sociable experience for all.

Wine making happens right here which is an exciting and busy time. The olive picking season starts in late April and runs through the early part of winter.

Table olives are hand picked to keep the fruit undamaged. Olives for Extra Virgin Olive Oil are picked processed within an hour.

They now have a converted Still House which offers premium accommodation in the form of a two storey villa, ideal for a romantic getaway. Two adults, luxury accommodation, great view from the balcony. Seems like a recipe for indulgence!!

Rutherglen to Wahgunyah 9km - Murray to Mountains Rail Trail

In a wine region blessed with abundant sunshine, and long languid summers a ride along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail from Rutherglen to the banks of the mighty Murray River in Wahgunyah is a charm. The shortest of all the rail trails, and possibly the flattest. Sip some of Australias oldest wines and trundle past some of the oldest vines over a leisurely nine kilometre ride.

Set out early in Summer to avoid the heat or save this little leg for Winter when the crisp sunny blue skies, so well known in the North East, make it a perfect full day activity before cocooning back in your cottage with a local red. This short, flat leg of the Murray to Mountains is also ideal for the little ones keen to hit the trail. Remember to pack the togs in Summer for a refreshing dip, when you reach the Murray River in Wahgunyah.

Rutherglen Farmers Market

The Rutherglen Farmers Market brings together all that is seasonal, regional and beautiful about produce in North-East Victoria. Held on the second Sunday of every month the market attracts more than twenty-five stall holders offering everything from artisan breads, to seasonal fruits and vegetables, specialty meats, oils, jams, preserves and so much more.

Some tips for attending the Rutherglen Farmers' Market:

Visitors are encouraged to bring their own bag, basket or esky and to minimise waste.

Bring a sense of adventure. A farmer's market is the ideal place to try something that might not normally be on the shopping list!

Ask a question. Take the opportunity to talk to the person who grew or produced the product. You might even pick up some great recipe ideas!

Shop seasonally. The market changes with the seasons. Relish the opportunity to buy fresh produce in season.

Support the Lions Club. The Rutherglen Lions Club have been fueling up visitors with magnificent egg and bacon rolls from the very first market. Be sure to try one when you next visit.
