Discover one of Victoria’s best kept secrets!  Strathbogie Shire is home to waterways, walks, wineries and wilderness, with a colourful past and a captivating future.  What’s not to love?

An hour from Melbourne, Strathbogie Shire’s famed equine industry has earned it the title ‘Victoria’s Thoroughbred Homeland’.

Through Avenel, Euroa, Longwood, Nagambie, Ruffy, 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.

Finding and then moving into a new home is always an exciting process. Sure, it has its headaches along the way, but there’s nothing quite like the thrill of that first night in a new house. And when the new house happens to be in a whole new region, the thrill only intensifies.
You may not be aware that regional Victoria is home to some of the best schools in the state. True, you won’t find the concentration of options that you have in Melbourne, but you’ll still find plenty of quality choice across all levels of schooling.
