Acrylic – in the heart of Victoria’s wine country. I have great uncles buried in the old Heathcote cemetary, their resting place after having fought in WW1.
One can feel the whispers of a gone by eira when driving through this historic town steeped in history.
A welcoming village atmosphere awaits just a little over an hour from Melbourne. In the heart of Central Victoria and nestled beneath the stunning McHarg and McIvor Ranges, is the charming township of Heathcote.
It is fast becoming one of Australia’s most loved wine regions. Good food, friendly cellar doors, spectacular landscapes, gold rush relics, local art and craft, serene bushlands and dark night skies dotted with stars make Heathcote an ideal place to explore.
Enjoy comfortable accommodation in tranquil settings, indulge in much-lauded wines and food, visit a wonderful local event and discover the beauty that surrounds this picturesque part of Victoria.
