Restaurants & cafes
Dining in the High Country is whatever you want it to be. Settle in at convivial country pubs, linger in stylish cafes or indulge in innovative cuisine at elegant restaurants with growing reputations.
Fine dining, High Country style
Your unforgettable High Country dining experience brings together regional producers, winemakers, brewers and restaurateurs, and is often a family affair. Taste the passion of top chefs, including Michael Ryan from Provenance at Beechworth, Emma Handley from Villa Gusto and Patrizia Simone from Simone's of Bright. Or sample the innovative Asian flavours of up-and-coming foodie favourites, Tani Eat & Drink.
No food without wine
Food and wine are inextricably linked in the High Country. Enjoy lunch at The Terrace, Wahgunyah's hatted restaurant in the vines, settle in for a slow lunch at Brown Brothers Epicurian Centre with a lazy wine on a beanbag afterwards, or explore other vineyard restaurants in the Milawa breadbasket, which offer complete regional food and wine packages.
Even beyond Beechworth, Rutherglen and the King Valley a smorgasboard awaits. Tuck into top tucker at the standout Stanley Pub and Rinaldo's Casa Cucina in Wangaratta. Take tea on Dinner Plain at Rundells Alpine Lodge, and get local at The Butter Factory, Myrtleford and the Mansfield Produce Store.
Take a break and treat yourself to coffee, tea and cake at a friendly local cafe in Victoria's High Country. Stop off at Beechworth, Bright and Milawa for your morning dose of caffiene, or take tea at Dinner Plain, Myrtleford or Mansfield.
