The Goulburn Valley town of Nagambie is dominated by a lake of the same name which not only laps the main street, but provides year-round water recreation for local residents and swarms of visitors. Regular yachting and rowing regattas are held on the lake which also hosts speed-boat racing and water skiing competitions. Several of the town’s older buildings have been listed by the National Trust and the local historical society has an enviable collection of Victoriana and vintage horse-drawn carriages and carts. The region is sprinkled with craft shops specialising in pottery and decorative glass and some notable wineries, including Chateau Tahbilk and Mitchelton, both of which have been classified by the Trust. The local winemakers get together for two big events - the Goulburn Valley Vintage Weekend on the third weekend in March and the Shiraz Challenge on Melbourne Cup Eve. The Goulburn River is navigable for 40km south of Nagambie and is particularly popular among canoeists and anglers on the scent of trout and redfin.
