A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE REGION WITH A BIG REPUTATION

It has also been described as one of the prettiest in Australia with rolling hills and sweeping gullies.

It is a charming corner of Australia. Around every corner it seems, is another lovely vista - rolling hills, winding streams and tiny villages, each sprinkled with reminders of the region's 160 year history. There are countless markets, delightful restaurants and quaint little pubs to explore - and of course, more than 40 wineries boasting some of Australia's finest wines.
