The waters of Lake Nagambie and the Goulburn River enrich the High Country town of Nagambie, which sits among some of Victoria's leading wineries and award-winning restaurants.
Fine wines and gourmet produce like locally-grown olive oil are the order of the day at renowned wineries around Nagambie, like Mitchelton Wines with its distinctive observation tower and Tahbilk Winery and Vineyard with its cafe and adjoining Tahbilk Wetlands and Wildlife Reserve.
Lake Nagambie hosts Australia's national standard rowing and canoeing titles during summer. Non-professionals can get out on the water, too, whether power boating, jet skiing, sailing, fishing, rowing or canoeing.
The township also has the Goulburn River on its doorstep, which is one of Victoria's largest inland river systems and a photogenic bird-watching spot. The river passes through Lake Nagambie and on to the historic Goulburn Weir, seven kilometres north of Nagambie.
For a different perspective of the Nagambie area you can sky dive, glide or fly in a hot air balloon. Take in the spectacular views of the magnificent Strathbogie Ranges and surrounding plains. Nagambie is prime thoroughbred horse country, with many leading stables based in the area.
Action off the water around Nagambie includes the historic Balaclava Gold Mine at Whroo, the Ned Kelly-themed Avenel Maze, tennis or golf at Nagambie's golf course.
Popular local events include the APS Regatta (Heads of the River) and the Nagambie on Water Festival in March.
Nagambie is 122 kilometres or just over an hour north of Melbourne travelling along the Hume Freeway to Seymour, then taking the Shepparton turn-off onto the Goulburn Valley Highway.
