Nagambie wine region Tahbilk Winery has a small pocket of its original 1860 shiraz vines, which continue to produce wine that’s worth its weight in gold. The winery also makes stunning marsanne and cabernet franc. It is worth spending some time at Tahbilk to explore the winery’s wetland, wildlife reserve and 3-tiered chateau that is classified by the National Trust. You can then hop on a cruise along the Goulburn River to the other big name in the area, Mitchelton. This winery has excellent shiraz and shiraz viognier. Within the grounds is Mitchelton’s famous tower with views of the Goulburn River, a lovely art gallery and Mitchelton Restaurant. You can also buy a picnic hamper or pack your own for a lunch outing by the river. Read more.

Goulburn Weir The construction of this weir resulted in the creation of Lake Nagambie. It is the diversion weir on the Goulburn River for the Goulburn Valley Irrigation area and feeds water by channel and pipeline to Bendigo, among other places. A walkway runs across the weir offering views of the structure and lake. Picnic and barbecue facilities are available; 12 km N.
