Festival fun

Much more than great food and wine, there’s live music and local produce markets for grown-ups, as well as face painting, fun and games galore for little ones.

Festival tickets $25pp. Children play free!

Festival tickets include access to participating wineries, entertainment, food available for purchase that you can't get at other times of the year, free tastings, and either a souvenir Spiegelau tasting glass (drinkers) or reusable water bottle (non-drinkers).

All revenue from ticket sales is invested into growing and developing the King Valley wine region.

Getting here

The Hume Freeway, the Maroondah and Midland Highways, and the Great Alpine Road feed into the region – the journey from Melbourne is a comfortable 3 hours, or 4 hours from Canberra. All roads leading to the region are sealed, and offer spectacular views.

Albury Airport facilitates daily flights between Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane, operated by Qantas Link, REX, Virgin Airlines and JETGO. All major rental car agencies are based at the airport. Wangaratta railway station is on the main Sydney-Melbourne rail link.

Staying here

If you'd like to stay in the valley, look for accomodation in Milawa, Oxley, Moyhu, Myrrhee, King Valley, Whitfield or Cheshunt.
