Only a 90-minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD, located on the foreshore of Lake Nagambie and on the banks of the Goulburn River sits our favourite regional town, Nagambie. Why are we so obsessed with this town? We’ll let you in on the secret, but be warned, you’ll be hooked too. Consider that your disclaimer.
Nagambie’s personality suits ours.
It’s laidback, genteel, rustic and charming. The best part is, that we are spoilt for choice when it comes to activities. Whilst we come for the fishing, there are magnitudes of other on and off water activities for fishos and non-fishos alike. The list includes water skiing, sailing, cycling, wetland walks, lake and river cruises, fishing (of course), canoeing and for the daredevils out there, skydiving.
Foodies; Pay attention to this bit.
Nagambie is also revered far and wide for its food and wine. The wineries within the region are some of the best in Victoria and are all a grape throw away from the Town Centre. You’ll want to include the likes of Mitchelton, Tahbilk, Plunkett Fowles and David Traeger on your hit list.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it can!
On the 4th Sunday of every month, the Nagambie Farmers Market at the historic Tahbilk winery provides us yet another excuse to hit the frog and toad and head to Nagambie. This market is amongst the best in the state, hosting a carefully curated mix of the best producers in the region. You’ll find everything from fresh fruit and veggies, eggs, butter, cheese and milk, bread, meat and fish, wine and beer, chocolate and jams and preserves and much more. It’s certainly one not to miss.
Nagambie creates champions.
We hang out there so some of that magic will rub off on us… we might be waiting a while though. The champion mare Black Caviar was born on Nagambie’s very own turf at Gilgai Farm. You can witness the might of this mare with the life size bronze statue making its home on High Street, looking out over the lake.
