Rich in art, history, heritage gardens and superb places to picnic, Benalla is a great place to call home for a few days while you explore the fantastic food, wine and craft beer, natural landscapes and cycling trails of Victoria’s High Country.
The Benalla Art Gallery is one of the best in regional Australia, and the annual Wall to Wall Festival is a sensational large-scale showcase of the work of leading Australian and international street artists. The Winton Wetlands, one of the biggest wetland restoration projects ever undertaken, is right on the doorstep, as are the ruggedly beautiful Warby Ranges.
Benalla Art Gallery
One of the best regional galleries in Australia with works by Arthur Streeton, Frederick McCubbin, Fred Williams and Sidney Nolan. Surrounded by beautiful botanical gardens and Lake Benalla, the Art Gallery precinct is a Benalla 'must do'.
The restoration of Winton Wetands is the largest wetland restoration project in the southern hemisphere. You can circumnavigate Lake Mokoan or enjoy the peace and tranquility of the bush with a network of bike paths snaking through the reserve. Grab lunch and a coffee at the Mokoan Hub while you're there.
Gliding over Benalla
The Gliding Club of Victoria is the largest Gliding Club in Australia. There are intensive seven day 'learn to glide' packages or half hour bookable joy flights, making Benalla the ideal place to learn how to fly.
