Myrtleford

  • Population approximately 2,800
  • 30 kilometres from Bright along the Great Alpine Road

 

Myrtleford is positioned with a dramatic backdrop of Mount Buffalo. First known as Myrtle Creek Run in the early 1800s, Myrtleford later became established on the Buckland Track by the District Surveyor in 1858.

Hops and tobacco have been grown on the rich alluvial flats of the Ovens and Buffalo Rivers around Myrtleford since the mid 1880s. A diverse horticulture industry exists in the area with vineyards, vegetables, berries and nuts, lavender, olives and vegetables complimenting the many other traditional agricultural pursuits of beef and fodder production.   Myrtleford is also surrounded by pine plantations, with timber being a major industry in the town.
