Introducing Rutherglen

Rutherglen combines some marvellous gold rush–era buildings (gold was discovered here in 1860) with northern Victoria's most celebrated winemaking tradition. The town itself has all the essential ingredients that merit a stopover, among them a great pie shop, antique dealers and a labyrinthine secondhand bookshop. It all adds up to an engaging destination in its own right and a good base for exploring the Murray's Victorian hinterland.
