About Rutherglen

As one of northern Victoria’s most prominent wine regions, Rutherglen thrives on good wine, antique shopping, historical architecture and outdoor activities. From classic tearooms to ancient timber-lined pubs, this former gold-mining town exudes Victorian charm and genteel living.

Things to do

Main Street is the heart of Rutherglen and a natural starting point for exploring its heritage. Amble over to Drummond Street and Rutherglen Park, then pay respects at Memorial Gardens before visiting the historic bell tower at St. Stephen's Anglican Church.

Get a full initiation in 19th-century Australian gold mining at the Rose of Sharon Museum, where you’ll find remnants and artefacts from the Rose of Sharon gold mine. The kids will enjoy seeing the Common School Museum, which replicates an old-fashioned classroom inside an authentic schoolhouse built in 1872.

Sample wine at some of Australia’s favourite wineries, including Campbells Wines, a fourth-generation family-owned estate hosting self-guided tours with museum memorabilia and winemaking antiques. Lake Moodemere Vineyards offers wine tasting and barbecue packs perfect for leisurely picnics around the lake.

Enjoy the outdoors at Lake Moodemere, a former Aboriginal camp home to famous painter Tommy McCrae. Pull in some fish for a lakeside barbecue or hit the water for boating, water skiing and canoeing. Back in town, relax with a fun evening on Main Street at Thousand Pound Wine Bar, known for its char-grilled steaks and seafood.

Getting around

Rutherglen is about 275 kilometres from Melbourne, accessible via train, bus and rental car. Taxis and mountain bikes are popular ways of getting around town, while winery bus tours are also available.
