Postcode: 3736

Myrtleford is a town in Victoria, Australia. It is in the Alpine Shire local government area. At the 2001 census, Myrtleford had a population of 2,515.

Myrtleford is situated in the heart of the Ovens Valley, in northeast Victoria, Australia. It is located at the confluence of the Ovens and Buffalo rivers. Myrtleford was once the centre of Australia’s major tobacco growing region.

Today winegrapes, hops, nuts and berries are grown in the region, however no crop has been able to replace the economic benefit the tobacco industry had on the town. Myrtleford is often described as the gateway to Victoria’s Alpine High Country.
