Soak up the Ned Kelly tales in Glenrowan, and venture further to enjoy historic vineyards, award-winning wines and a growing foodie scene. Once you've had your fill, it's time to wander the trails and discover the diverse bird life in the nearby wetlands and national park.
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 history books. 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.
With the Winton Wetlands and the Warby Ovens National Park nearby, there's plenty of opportunities for twitchers and bushwalkers alike. Take a stroll through the red gum forest and wetlands and discover robins and rosellas, eastern spinebills and wedge-tailed eagles.
