Arrive in Myrtleford on bicycle via the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail or make it a stop on your tour of the Great Alpine Road and discover a village brimming with life. Sample fresh local produce, visit cellar doors and delve into the region's goldmining history.
Pedal to produce
Reap the benefits of the rich alluvial flats that surround Myrtleford and sustain vineyards, vegetables, berries and nuts, olives and beef. Cruise along the easy bike paths to farm gates and fill your baskets with whatever's just been picked or produced.
Linger at cellar doors and vineyards across the Alpine Valleys wine region. Stop in at Michelini Wines and stay for a meal or stock up on top drops. Taste innovative varietals like Petit Manseng and Saperavi at Gapstead Wines or try the handmade wines at Ringer Reef Winery.
Life of leisure
Back in town, sample the local bounty prepared imaginatively at top restaurants and cafes. Relish handmade pasta at Lupo's Kiln Cafe, Middle Eastern favourites at Cafe Fez and freshly roasted and brewed coffee at Coffee Chakra.
Dismount from the bike or get out of the car and head off on foot. Grab a map from the visitor information centre and wander along the Discovery Trail and discover Myrtleford's tobacco-growing and goldmining past. Sit awhile along the banks of the Ovens River and admire the dramatic backdrop of Mount Buffalo and the Alps.
