About the Heathcote Region

In the heart of Central Victoria and nestled between the stunning McHarg and McIvor Ranges, you will find the charming town of Heathcote.


Established in the 1850s after gold was discovered in the area, Heathcote is now known globally for another precious gem – the Shiraz grape! Fast becoming one of Australia’s most loved wine regions, Heathcote is an ideal place to slow down, get back to basics and appreciate the view.
