While staying in Wangaratta for the FE-FC Holden Nationals don't forget to check out the location attractions.
The Wangaratta Tourist information centre is located at 100 Murphy St, Wangaratta. There is a huge amount of information available from the friendly staff there.
North East Victoria is renown for it's wines and vineyards, personal favourites are Brown Brothers in Milawa; Gapsted Wines near Myrtleford and Dal Zotto in Whitfield. For a more complete list of Wineries in the Wangaratta district click here or perhaps try Rutherglen Wineries - the drive via Chiltern (great historic township) is only 40min/55km.

Other great places to visit include Beechworth (30min/40km), Bright, (1hr/80km), Mt Beauty (via Bright 1hr 35min/110km), Milawa (15min/15km), Corowa (via Rutherglen 35min/50km) or Yarrawonga (45min/60km). Please feel free to seek advice from the Nats Committee using the contact form or ask us at the Nationals. There will be quite a few locals from the Early Holden Car Club of Wangaratta attending the Nationals as well so seek their recommendations.
If you only have a little time available why not check out The Vine Hotel - a local, well kept secret.... only 5 mins/5km up the old Highway/Bowser Rd.
