Welcome to 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 classic country pubs. Factor in excellent B&B accommodation and a good craft brewery, and Rutherglen is also a great base for exploring the Murray River's Victorian hinterland.
Rutherglen is the traditional homeland of the Bangerang and Wiradjuri peoples, and an excellent new Indigenous art gallery opened in late 2017 in the centre of town.
