Glenrowan

Hear tales of the infamous Ned Kelly in Glenrowan and discover historic vineyards, award-winning wines and a burgeoning culinary scene.

Ned Kelly is undoubtedly Australia's most notorious bushranger and an important part of Australian folklore. Visit the site of his 'last stand' and see the many attractions around Glenrowan that bring together the various aspects of his enduring legend. See the six-metre-high statue of Ned Kelly clad in homemade armour and catch the animated theatrical portrayal of the Kelly Gang's final stand that uses original props, including an authentic handgun once owned by Kelly.

Winemaking is equally as important as Kelly history in Glenrowan, with grapes planted long before the bushranger thrust the village into the history books. Call in at historic cellar doors like Baileys of Glenrowan and taste the old vine shiraz at Booth's Taminick Cellars, owned by the Booth family since the beginning of last century.

Visit the farm gates of local orchards for your fill of fresh cherries, peaches and apricots, and join in the fun of local events like the Trails, Tastings and Tales over the Queen's Birthday weekend and October's Winemaker's Weekend.

Twitchers and bushwalkers will enjoy a visit to the nearby Winton Wetlands and Warby Ovens National Park. Walk through red gum forest and discover rosellas and robins, wedge-tailed eagles and eastern spinebills.

Glenrowan is 220 kilometres or just under 2.5 hours' drive from Melbourne along the Hume Highway.

Glenrowan: Events

Trails, Tastings and Tales Food and Wine Festival


Over the three days of the Queen's birthday long weekend in the Glenrowan Wine Region, explore, discover and enjoy regional wines, live music and rustic, warming food during the Trails, Tastings and Tales Food and Wine Festival.

There will be wine appreciation and educational sessions with the winemakers to enhance your wine knowledge, muscat blending workshops and art exhibitions by renowned local artists. Enjoy a hand crafted beer from the region's new micro brewery. A variety of weekend entertainment and attractions will be provided for the whole family to relax and enjoy themselves at each winery.

The festival provides the perfect opportunity to taste the wines of the region, take in the beauty of the landscape on the wine trail and indulge in savoury and sweet dishes over the three days of the festival.

The diversity of the Glenrowan Wine Region will be enhanced by the outing of new release wines to be added to the array of the region's wine bounty.

The Trails, Tastings and Tales festival is family friendly and due to the size of the wineries, operates a no coaches policy this weekend. Mini buses are welcome with pre booking recommended. Strictly no BYO alcohol.
