Avoca is a perfect place for a summer country get away. Enjoy soaking up the sunshine during the day on the back deck then watch the sunset from the front verandah. Can't be bothered cooking, then stroll down the hill to the award winning local hotel, 'The Avoca'. Avoca is a goldfield town with many historic buildings but it is also a real town with a bakery, butcher, newsagent, chemist, small supermarket, post office, cafes and galleries. Our local Pyrenees wineries include Blue Pyrenees, Dalwhinnie, Redbank, Mount Avoca, Taltarni, and Summerfield . Blue Pyreness Winery is only 5km out of town and serves light lunches on the weekend. Their wines are well recognised “Blue Pyrenees Estate is consistently one of the best value red-wine producers in the country – to say nothing of its superb sparkling wines. The prices are a gift” Huon Hooke 17/09/2015. All these wineries have tasting rooms with open fires, picnic areas and friendly winemakers. For the energetic, it is possible to visit many of these on your bike via country roads. Feeling hot after wine tasting then take a dip in the local pool which has plenty of space to relax under a shady tree. Avoca is within an easy two hour drive from Melbourne and 45 mins from the provincial town of Ballarat, and an hour from Bendigo and the happening Castlemaine. Avoca is an excellent base to explore the Grampians, and the towns of Clunes and Creswick.
