Mouth watering Milawa

-

LOCALS and visitors to the North East Victoria speak with enthusiasm about the Milawa Gourmet region, and it has garnered much attention over the years from TV hosts eager to experience it for themselves.

The home of locally grown and produced cheese, wine, olives, honey and much more, Milawa should be number one on your list of places to take family and friends when they come to visit.

Less than three hours from Melbourne, 15 minutes from Wangaratta and 25 minutes from Myrtleford, Milawa is an easy drive from almost anywhere.

You can swim at the Ovens River Reserve or from Markwood Everton Road Bridge and there is a BBQ and playground for the children at John MacAleese Park.

A monthly Saturday market is held in the heated and air conditione­d hall (COVID restrictio­ns allowing) and you will find locally produced goods and wares.

All monies raised go towards restoring, upkeep and improvemen­ts to the hall itself.

There are numerous accommodat­ion options along with food and petrol to fuel your body and your vehicle so you can keep exploring the region, or to get you home again.

Milawa makes an excellent choice for a base and you can dust off your bike and ride the shared path to Oxley (12km return) or to Wangaratta (40km return).

The shared path is sealed and of a low gradient, which makes it pleasant for walking as well so explore Milawa today and see what all the fuss is about.
