Wangaratta is just off the Hume Freeway between Melbourne and Sydney and is quite a commercial centre. This is a large country town with a lovely main street, lined with trees and beautiful old buildings. We saw a number of cafes, bars and restaurants, shops and plenty of people out enjoying a beautiful summers day. There are three caravan parks in town and one is only a few minutes walk to the centre of town (Painters Island Caravan Park). 

The Visitor Information Centre is located at the end of the main shopping street and is housed in an old library building - beautifully presented information, local produce for sale and a display of local artworks which is constantly changing.  

One interesting tourist attraction we heard about at the Visitor Information Centre was a bus that will take you and your bike to Beechwoarth where you can disembark and ride downhill, along the rail trail back to Wangaratta.  I thought this was a great idea as I find it difficult to ride uphill but have no trouble coming down. Most of this path is along the railway line which is apparently in very good condition.

There are lots of things to see and do in this part of Victoria and I think Wangaratta would be the perfect spot to base yourself and explore the wineries, Ned Kelly country, or take a drive around the food trail to taste the vast variety of locally grown and made produce. What a lovely place!
