Tickets to the most famous Victorian wine festival, right on our doorstep, are now on sale. The legendary Winery Walkabout will return on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend with more than 15,000 wine lovers expected to descend on Rutherglen to enjoy the great wine, food trucks, live music and much more.
Now in its 43rd year, Winery Walkabout has become a fixture for locals and visitors, with massive crowds expected to enjoy the revelry and atmosphere at the 19 participating wineries.
The program will again feature great wine, food from around the world, impressive live music acts, fun games and masterclasses, VIP experiences and plenty of evening activities.
The Rutherglen Country Fair will also be on again on Sunday the 11th, with hundreds of stalls, great food, and the famous grape stomping and barrel rolling competitions keeping the crowds entertained.
Regional buses and winery shuttle buses will again run in 2017, making it easy and safe to enjoy Winery Walkabout. The regional bus services the towns of Corowa, Wahgunyah, Yarrawonga, Mulwala, Bundalong, Wangaratta, Chiltern, Beechworth, Howlong, Albury and Wodonga. The winery shuttle bus runs a hop on/hop off service to all 19 participating wineries every half hour.
