The Glenrowan wine region has a long and rich winemaking history, as 130 years of winemaking has establishe­d the region’s reputation for full-bodied reds, fragrant whites and fortifieds, and the region’s cellar doors are cosy and welcoming to wine lovers.

The cellar doors are intimate and welcoming, many offering casual fare on weekends featuring local produce and delicacies.

Glenrowan itself also has several dining options to suit travellers and locals alike, and you can also have fun browsing the local shops, which sell everything from souvenirs to local food and vintage finds, or wander the local historic attraction­s to find out more about the town’s rich history.

There are also several fruit orchards and growers in the area producing various delicious fresh produce to tempt the tastebuds.

Nearby natural attraction­s include the Warby Ovens

National Park, the Winton Wetlands and more, offering many options for a picturesqu­e picnic spot, bird watching and bushwalkin­g, as well as vantage points and lookouts including Ryan’s Lookout, Mt Glenrowan and Salisbury Falls.
