Just a tick over 3 hours’ drive from Melbourne, the Gannawarra region is a haven of natural features ready to explore this spring. Relax on the riverbank, fishing with friends or soak up the ambience of the majestic red gum forests.
Then be sure to visit the many towns across the region, all with their own unique character and welcoming hospitality. There’s plenty here to keep you busy, including sun dappled golf courses, cafés and dining, pubs with beer gardens, and great local shopping.
Spring in the Gannawarra region is the perfect time to enjoy the peaceful outdoor life. Wake up to bright clear mornings alive with bird song, warm up on the trails by foot or bike, set up by the river to cast a line. Or head to Lake Charm, Kangaroo Lake, Lake Meran or Gunbower Creek for some on-water fun.
End the evening in town accommodation, or -better yet - set up your campsite and enjoy a campfire as the sun sets.
The Gannawarra also plays host to regular and seasonal events ranging from farmers' markets to local cricket and tennis teams playing out rivalries that span generations.
