"Peace and quiet, nice scenery."

Myrtleford is great for peace and quiet, fresh air and great scenery. There’s the Ovens and Buffalo River, plus Lake Buffalo close by. There are great places to eat and a farmers market. Beechworth and Bright are close by for more eating options, and Wangaratta is about 30 min drive away for extra shopping options. Town has Coles, Foodworks, hospital, pharmacy, both public and Catholic schools for P-12, Vline bus services, plus plenty other services. Major industries include tourism, timber, wine, agriculture (hops, blueberries, apples, cherries, nuts). Driving times to Bright 20 mins, Beechworth 25 mins, Wangaratta 30 mins, Wodonga 50 mins, Mount Buffalo 1 hour, Mount Hotham and Falls Creek both 1.5 hours, Melbourne 3 hours.
