Situated about 30 minutes outside of Ballarat, the Pyrenees wine region is the sort of place you can drop in to for a couple of days or potter around for a week.

However long you manage to stay, you can’t help but have your fair share of delicious food and locally-produced wine.

But eating and drinking isn’t all you’ll do here – it’s a gorgeous part of the country, with ironbark forests, flora and fauna reserves, great spots to picnic and lots of good bushwalking tracks.

There are also some lovely old towns in the area, with Moonambel, Avoca or Beaufort perfect for setting up base.
