Road trip through the Pyrenees wine region

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

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

Uncover delicious drops

The Pyrenees might share its name with another famous wine area between France and Spain, but you don’t need to board a plane to discover the remarkable winemakers right on our own doorstep.

There are over 25 wineries in the region, many offering exceptional cellar door experiences, picnics, barrel tastings and award-winning winery restaurants.

Avoca is home to the Pyrenees Unearthed Wine & Food Festival as well as The Avoca Hotel, a beautifully-restored Victorian era pub serving great food and local 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 camp or picnic and lots of good bushwalking tracks, including at Mount Buangor and Mount Cole State Forests where you can hike along the Beeripmo walking track or discover waterfalls along the Waterfalls Nature Walk.

For the amateur or serious collector, visit Antiques, Bottles and Collectables in Avoca. Then there’s Beaufort’s Big Garage Sale and Beaufort Christmas Shop that’s also worth the drive.

To really explore the Pyrenees, we highly recommend staying the weekend. Book a night in an Unyoked cabin at Peerick Vineyard and Winery. Facing the remote mountain range, these cabins make for the perfect off-the-grid stay under the stars.

Maybe a luxury mountainside farm stay sounds more your style? Then check out The Glut Farm.

Things to do

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
