Your guide to Milawa

Welcome to Milawa

The King Valley in northeast Victoria’s High Country is the kind of place gourmands will visit and never want to leave. This lush region in the foothills of Alpine National Park combines wondrous wilderness areas with vast grape fields, planted by Italian migrants who settled here after World War II. They brought with them a passion for food and wine, as well as traditions that endure today, as you’ll discover dropping in on producers and cellar doors. Regional varietals include Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, and Barbera, with Prosecco also a major draw — an official King Valley Prosecco Road highlights makers of this delicious bubbly drop, and some equally compelling eateries to pair.

The gateway to this culinary bounty is the tiny town of Milawa, its streets lined with historic buildings, galleries, and boutiques, not to mention produce stores stocking artisanal goods that showcase the region. Its other primary historic attraction is the former Milawa dairy, once among the biggest in the country and today occupied by a popular cheese factory and tasting room.

The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Milawa

There’s no bad time to visit the King Valley, with each season bringing its own appeal. While summer temperatures can make Melbourne sizzle, the Victorian High Country enjoys sunshine and milder temperatures, ideal for picnics and watersports along the King River. Spring offers a countryside blanketed in wildflowers and waterfalls in peak flow, attracting hikers and cyclists in equal measure, with gourmands also arriving for La Dolce Vita festival in November.

Autumn is grape harvest, with pickers out amid neat rows of flame-hued vines and events in full swing — don’t miss the Feast High Country Festival (typically in May). Winter also sees the region’s bounty celebrated at June’s Weekend Fit For a King food and wine soiree.
