Great Alpine Road Visitor Guide

PAGE 38 | GREAT ALPINE ROAD VISITOR GUIDE MYRTLEFORD Discover old-world European charm Summer in the region around Myrtleford in north-east of Victoria is all about spending time outside, from picnics by the river, to simple al fresco dining in the backyard. The days get longer and the evening sunsets become more spectacular. Friends and family gather for twilight dining, get-togethers in the park, or backyard barbecues. With the warmer weather, light, easy to prepare meals and chilled, light premium white, red and sparkling wines are the order of the day. Autumn is crisp and fresh, as the leaves change colours on the trees. It's also the time to celebrate Myrtleford's Italian culture and heritage at the La Fiera Festival, and enjoy a warm 'vin brule' to keep the chills away. This is a wonderful time to visit Myrtleford.
