Experience Warragul, a thriving rural town set amongst rolling green hills and dairy fields. Spend a few days wandering through the heritage buildings and galleries, then explore Gippsland gourmet country and the beautiful Mt Baw Baw snowfields.
History and heritage
Wander down Queen Street and take in the 19th century architecture found in the ornate facades and archways of the local banks, shops and hotels. Take a trip back in time at the heritage listed Warragul Station and Shire Hall, built in 1893, and now housing the historical society. If you need some fresh air, head to the countryside and discover the beauty of the surrounding fields and hills with a drive along the Old Sale Road.
Food and wine
Choose from a vast array of restaurants, wineries and bakeries in the area and settle in for an evening of boutique local wine and fine cuisine. Take home tantalising chutneys and jams at Clearly Delicious, or marvel at the picturesque landscapes surrounding the Wild Dog Winery. If you're holidaying in March, be sure to plan your trip around one of the many events at the Palate of Passions festival with a plethora of long lunches, winery events and international flavours.
Visual art and music
Visit the numerous galleries and studios dotted around the local area. From glass blowing to sculpture, live music to craft markets, there's plenty of things to spark the imagination. Visit Lillico Glass Studio and take home handcrafted works by glass artist Haydn John or stop by Darnum Musical Village to see vintage musical instruments in a historic setting.
