Wine and food lovers can discover fabulous food and sample varieties of wine from all across the region on the five Taste of Gold trails: Central Goldfields, Maldon and Beyond, Castlemaine, Mt Alexander, Coliban Bridge and Kyneton.
Beyond the Goldfields
If you're travelling from interstate or you have time to roam further, consider following the Sydney Melbourne Heritage Drive up through the Goldfields and on to the Murray River region.
