Through Avenel, Euroa, Longwood, Nagambie, Strathbogie and Violet Town, natural and developed attractions abound.
Sheep production, winemaking, olive and alpaca farming all feature among the area’s agriculture, and families enjoy a host of education and health care services, housing that doesn’t cost the earth, and diverse employment options.
From the peaks of its mountain ranges to the cool, clear waters of its lakes and streams, you’re sure to end up loving every part of Strathbogie Shire.
