Steeped in history, visit the many graves scattered around the Avenel Cemetery.
Of important note here is the grave of John 'Red' Kelly, the father of the infamous Ned Kelly. 'Red' was laid to rest at the age of 45 on the 28 December 1866. He died in the Kilmore Gaol after his health was ruined due to alcohol abuse....
Named as a 'Winery to Watch' by Wine Spectator Magazine, a five star winery by James Halliday and Victoria's Best Tourism Winery three years in a row, Fowles Wine Cellar Door Cafe is located at the foothills of the stunning Strathbogie Ranges in central Victoria, just one and a half hours north of Melbourne.
The unique and relatively unknown region of the Strathbogie Ranges is perfect for those wanting to flee the big smoke and discover award winning wines among misty mornings, shady gum trees and picture-perfect sunsets in historic Ned Kelly country.
