The Goulburn region starts an hour north of Melbourne in central Victoria, following the curves of the impressive Goulburn River network. With open farmland, historical towns and a blend of parks and rivers, it's a stunning region, and close proximity to Melbourne makes planning for a long stay or a short day trip easy to manage.
Goulburn has plenty of options for outdoor pursuits such as camping, water sports and cycling; bountiful local produce; and some of the best wines and cellar doors in Victoria. The orchards and fruit farms in and around Shepparton are considered some of the best in Australia.
The smaller towns of Kilmore, Nagambie, Euroa and Murchison are peppered with galleries and cafes, plus a range of farm stays, B&Bs and riverside accommodation.
When you travel to the Goulburn region, you will be visiting the lands of the Yorta Yorta and Taungurung people.
