Nestled in the Ovens Valley and with Happy Valley Creek running through the centre of town, Myrtleford is a popular destination for food, wine and adventure lovers. Originally known as Myrtle Creek, the town was shaped by pioneer graziers, gold seekers and timber getters. These days the tobacco farms have been replaced by productive crops including wine grapes, hops, walnuts, chestnuts and berries.
The fertile soils of Myrtleford boast some of the most abundant harvests in the region. People travel far and wide to buy this delicious fresh produce, straight from the producers hand. Discover the fresh herbs, vitamin packed veggies and sweet fruits of the farmers markets, farm gates and even a driveway stall or two. From the traditions of their Italian ancestors, you will really taste the character and heart of the local people, who take immense pride in the food they produce.
They're small, worth up to $30,000 a pallet, referred to as 'Green Gold' and only one farm in Australia produces them ... they're pumpkin seeds!
For a rare opportunity to 'take it down a notch' and enjoy the countryside and all it has to offer, Myrtleford is the perfect escape.
