Welcome to our region - an area pivotal in Australia’s development. The Backroads Trail, with its signposted interpretive sites, allows you to see how we have lived on and shaped this land from Dreamtime prehistory to the present day. The Backroads Trail weaves together the themes of heritage, environment, food, wine and culture in an informed and user-friendly way. You’ll not only stand on the sites where history was made - you’ll be delighted by small businesses all along the way offering you delicious produce, a comfy bed for the night, and extra attractions such as stunning sculptures, leafy bushland walks and relaxing river cruises. You need to get off the highway to see us - but we will open your eyes.
