Warm up in Victoria's Goldfields

Winter in Victoria's Goldfields is a great time to explore the wealth of treasures and riches on offer and enjoy a short or longer break.

The region is home to two of Australia's best regional art galleries and both regularly host travelling and international exhibitions. This winter Bendigo Art Gallery is hosting a comprehensive exhibition of Frederick McCubbin's later works, as one of Australia's foremost impressionists this is not to be missed. A visit to the Art Gallery of Ballarat will reveal a celebration of cartoons and caricatures from the 1700's to the present day.

Tuck into delicious regional cuisine lovingly prepared by talented chefs who now call the region home. Enjoy wonderful boutique wines from the wine regions of Bendigo, Heathcote and Ballarat, all noted for their rich, winter warming reds.

All this no more than an hour and half drive from Melbourne. Read on to find out about great winter events and special accommodation offers to help you plan your Goldfields escape. Victoria's Goldfields, leave a little richer.
