Myrtleford is a friendly town of 3,500 people located on the Great Alpine Road, at the foot of the Alpine National Park. We’re just 270 km northeast of Melbourne, via the Hume Freeway or V-Line rail link. Our nearest major airport at Albury is only 55km away. Well-known neighbouring towns include Wangaratta, Beechworth, Yackandandah, Mt Beauty & Bright.

Plenty of action

Our location beside the northern abutment of Mt Buffalo, at the union of the Ovens River and Happy Valley & Barwidgee Creeks, makes Myrtleford a perfect base for exploring the Mt Buffalo and Alpine National Parks.

You’ll find snow sports at Falls Creek and Mt Hotham, fabulous walking & rock climbing on the Bogong High Plains & Razorback, aerial sports like paragliding, freshwater fishing, and extensive alpine mountain bike trails.

The region is also a superb road-cycling destination, with several world-class events and heaps of recreational riding opportunities. And the motorbike riding – on & off-road – is incredible!

Something gentler

Myrtleford is surrounded by excellent cafes, restaurants & wineries, with plenty of comfortable picnic spots. Beautiful scenery, tranquillity, rivers and mountain views enchant visitors. You’ll find a whole range of great accommodation around Myrtleford, from remote wilderness campsites to 5-star holiday homes. The town has a flourishing commercial centre, and is central to famous premium wine districts.
