The simple life in Strathbogi­e

-

THE Strathbogi­e Shire is an easy place to fall in love with.

In the heart of the Strathbogi­e Tablelands in country Victoria you will find somewhere to relax and forget your troubles, and the hustle and bustle of city life.

Strathbogi­e offers everything from clear, calm waters of the Goulburn River to stunning views from the summit of the Cathedral Ranges and imposing boulder outcrops of the beautiful Trawool Valley.

Popular picnic and swimming spots such as Polly McQuinns and Gooram Falls are particular delights and the mighty Goulburn River winds through plains, vast mountain ranges and bushland.

Historic buildings, rustic homesteads, shearing sheds, cottages and rural outbuildin­gs stand as a testament to the thriving communitie­s of a different era.

If you would like to walk or hike, there are numerous trails to traverse including Rockie Neds, Mt Separation and Mt Wombat.

Enjoy the vast array of produce, including trout, salmon, berries of all types, olive oil, cherries and beef, or take some home to share with family and friends.

Wine lovers are catered for as well, with numerous cellar doors dotted across the region.

Only 90 minutes’ drive from Melbourne, Strathbogi­e Shire townships of Nagambie, Avenel, Euroa and Violet Town are accessible by public transport on the North-East line.

So sit back, relax and maybe start that book you have wanted to read for a long time.

It truly is nature at its very best.
