Jump in your car or hop on the train or bus because Nagambie is a region of wine, waterways, wetlands and wildlife only 90 minutes from Melbourne (map) and only 40mins from Shepparton.
At its heart, the township of Nagambie offers a huge range of outdoor activities (both on and off the lake!) and is host to regular rowing regattas including the prestigious "Head of the River". If you're looking for a day trip, weekend escape, event location or tree change: here it is!
There's just so much to do in the region. Hire a canoe or tinnie and travel along the majestic Goulburn River, with its abundant bird life, native plants & animals.
Take a trip in the river boat between Mitchelton and the historic Tahbilk wineries.
Stay at one of the many accommodation houses, motels, resorts, B&Bs and leisure parks or find a peaceful camping spot. Not to mention all the fishing, skiing, rowing, sailing, boating and splashing?!
If you'd rather stay dry, there's a huge range of cellar doors and fabulous gourmet cafes and restaurants to visit. Or perhaps a drive or bike ride through neighbouring Longwood and Avenel and up into the Strathbogie Ranges, fossicking around the antique & produce stores, gem stone & art galleries, museums and markets. Maybe a picnic at the old Whroo gold fields and a tour of the local historic bridges and Goulburn Weir.
For those seeking a bit more action there's skydiving, four wheel driving, dirt bike riding and 'crash and bash' nights at the Nagambie Speedway and don't forget the golf course, tennis courts, bowls and croquet clubs. And if you just want to unwind well it doesn't get much better than a massage or spa treatment followed by a glass of delicious local wine while watching the sunset over the lake.
