Lilliput: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.
