UPDATE, 3 JUNE 2021: Heathcote on Show has been cancelled due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in Victoria. For more information, head to the Heathcote on Show Facebook page.


With its idyllic location on the fringes of the Great Dividing Ranges (and just 90 minutes' drive from Melbourne), the central Victorian town of Heathcote is fast becoming one of Australia's most loved wine regions. This Queen's Birthday long weekend (Saturday, June 12–Monday, June 14), the town is showcasing the very best of its world-class produce at Heathcote on Show, a three-day event that includes cellar door tastings, excellent food, live music, masterclasses and more.

Heathcote's artisan winemakers, chefs, brewers and musicians are putting on over 30 events over the long weekend, so there'll be plenty to eat, drink and do. Highlights include wine tastings, woodfired pizza and live music at the award-winning Condie Estate; live music, vertical wine tastings and cheesemaking workshops at Sanguine Estate; and an on-site, three-course dinner with six wine pairings at Tellurian Wines.

Closer to town, Heathcote Wine Hub, which stocks Australia's largest collection of wine from the region, will feature live music all day on Saturday and Sunday, as well as southern-style barbecue, vegan treats and grazing plates, which you can enjoy in front of the open fireplace or in the expansive openair wine garden.

There will also be frequent shuttle buses between major stops, meaning you don't have to worry about getting around — or having one too many.

For more information and to plan your trip, head to the official Heathcote on Show website.
