Wangaratta Information

Wangaratta is a Cathedral city situated at the junctions of the Ovens and King Rivers 230 kilometres north east of Melbourne. The region is famous for World Class Wines and some of the finest Gourmet Food in the State. With Spectacular Mountain Views, Stunning Valleys and Crystal Clear Rivers and Streams, Rural Wangaratta has something for everyone.

The one thing that anyone visiting the area must do, above all else, is visit the small remote town of Glenrowan just south of the city. This is the place where the notorious Ned Kelly made his last stand against the forces of Law and Order. The dramatic gun battle raged for several hours in which the members of his gang were killed and Kelly was finally captured and hung for his crimes.

If history is not your thing, there is plenty to do and see with architectural excellence from the historical Holy Trinity Anglican Cathedral to the ultra modern Art Deco Court House.

The main event in the city is the Wangaratta Jazz Festival which has been thrilling music lovers every year since 1990 and as you would expect from the one of the largest Cities in the region, there are ample sporting facilities such as Golf, Equine, Cycling, Greyhound and Horse Racing.

For the more adventurous, Wangaratta is within easy reach of Falls Creek and Mount Hotham, two of the major Ski Towns in Victoria’s Snowfields.

The town’s cultural precinct contains the Exhibitions Gallery and the Playhouse Theatre and there are a number of attractive Parks and Gardens dotted through the centre of the city.

Take in one of the numerous Festivals or Events, explore the panoramic sights of King Valley or laze on Sydney Beach on the Ovens River and enjoy a swim in the clear natural waters, the choice is yours.
