Keyneton Accommodation, Hotels, Tours & Information
Set amidst big gum country on the road to the Murray River, Keyneton is a pretty country village of just a dozen or so buildings and most of them dating from the mid-late 1800s. The town was named after English pastoralist Joseph Keynes, who had taken up the land in the early 1840s and whose descendants still continue to live and farm in the area. Keyneton's newest attraction is Brasserie Moustache. The eccentric name appropriately prepares you for the idiosyncrasies of the brasserie, from the Gallic paraphernalia garnishing the interior of the 128-year-old building, to the French inspired ever-changing menu. Bookings are recommended. A short 4km drive away is the historic C.A. Henschke winery, home to the world- famous Hill of Grace Shiraz.
