Ovens Murray
From food, wine and music to magnificent mountain vistas, the Ovens Murray region in north east Victoria has it all. Heading north along the Hume Highway, the region begins in the picturesque riverside town of Benalla and continues along the Hume through to the thriving regional cities of Wangaratta and Wodonga, with charming historic towns such as Beechworth and Bright, the snowfields and Victorian High Country all just a short drive away. Alongside its world class wineries and restaurants, the Ovens Murray region is known for its regular music, art and food festivals that bring visitors across the world. 

But with its recreational, commercial, educational and health facilities, the region is more than just a holiday destination, offering a range of job and professional opportunities that make it an ideal lifestyle choice for families, young professionals and career changers from diverse backgrounds. 


More than just the clean, fresh country air, Ovens Murray will also give you long hot summer days and snow-capped mountains throughout the winter months. You can buy a three bedroom home in Wangaratta for about $340,000 or, if you are seeking a quieter pace of life, head up into the hills and rent a historic home for a mountain view for around $320 a week. As it takes in the main transport route between Melbourne and Sydney, the region is well serviced by trains and buses and has plenty of local transport options.
