From the clear calm waters of our lakes and rivers to the stunning views from the heights of our ranges, charming villages, fine food and wine – welcome to the beautiful Strathbogie Shire.

The abundant, diverse and utterly breathtaking landscape of the Strathbogie Shire is only a short 90 minute drive from the hustle and bustle of the Melbourne CBD.

Our magnificent region offers an escape to fresh air, natural attractions and so much see, do, experience and taste.

Lake Nagambie is one of Australia’s most scenic places to go fishing, water skiing, sailing, rowing, canoeing or simply relaxing on it’s banks over a picnic and strolling along the boardwalk.   It’s also home to a nationally renowned rowing and canoeing venue which regularly hosts exciting State and National championships.

Within half an hour you can be enjoying breathtaking views as you ascend the beautiful Strathbogie Ranges.  Providing a dramatic landscape around every corner, the rugged granite-topped mountains, waterfalls and pristine bushland accommodate an abundance of wildlife.

The picturesque towns and villages dotted throughout the region provide another great reason to stay.  Avenel, Euroa, Longwood, Ruffy, Violet Town and Strathbogie boast great old pubs, beautiful gardens and lovely old buildings.  Monthly markets showcase the region’s finest produce and attract visitors from far and wide.
