Look beyond the Ned Kelly tributes in Glenrowan to discover historic vineyards producing award-winning wines that precede the famous bushranger and his notorious gang.
Historic wine and food
Call in at historic cellar doors in the Glenrowan wine region. Don't miss Baileys of Glenrowan, which had grapes planted long before the bushranger thrust the village into the annals of folklore. Taste the old vine shiraz at Booth's Taminick Cellars, owned by the Booth family since the beginning of last century.
Visit the farm gates of local orchards for fresh cherries, peaches, apricots and more. Celebrate Glenrowan's gastronomy at themed events from Trails, Tastings and Tales over the Queen's Birthday weekend to October's Winemaker's Weekend.
Be sure to soak up as much Ned Kelly lore as you can while you're at the site of the famous Kelly Gang's last stand.
See the six-metre-high Ned Kelly statue 'guarding' the village. Witness Kellyland's animated theatrical portrayal of the last stand, and grab a map from the visitor information centre or take a guided tour along the Siege Site Walk to explore several notable sites.
