Highlights

Events

Bring the family and raise a glass to regional food, wine, history and the great outdoors year-round in the High Country.

La Dolce Vita
Toast the High Country as top local restaurants and wineries present the ultimate blend of regional eating and drinking at events like the Beechworth Harvest Celebration in May or the Rutherglen Winery Walkabout over the June Queen's Birthday weekend.

Join the King Valley's winemaking families for the June Weekend Fit for a King, or mark the arrival of spring at La Dolce Vita in November.

Country celebrations
Celebrate the region's country character alongside locals at annual extravaganzas like the Mansfield High Country Festival. Visit Bright for the Autumn Festival and enjoy the glorious seasonal colours. Don't miss the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues in November.

Adventure and action
Take on the challenge of the International Kangaroo Hoppet XC Ski Race at Falls Creek in August and head to Bright in January to see top cyclists tackle tough climbs in the Audax Alpine Classic.
