Heathcote Views - only 10 minutes from Heathcote

Heathcote is where you'll find the Astronomical society of Victoria, its where you'll find the ideal location from which to view the dark sky in Victoria if not the southern hemisphere, but best of all Heathcote is famous for producing excellent wines. For this is where the Shiraz grown is world class, where sheep & cattle grazing pastures have been transformed into vineyards & olive groves. Where cellar doors are popping up at a rapid rate. Only 90 minutes from Melbourne its no longer just a stopover for tourists visiting Bendigo & beyond, its now a very popular destination to take wine tours and sample some excellent local vintages. Play a round or two of golf on the magnificent Heathcote Golf course or indulge your inner photographer with our spectacular scenery from Lancefield to Tooborac.   See our Photo Gallery for more images.
