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.
