The main urban areas are Beechworth, Rutherglen, Yackandandah and Chiltern and each have rich histories. There are also the smaller but equally attractive and vibrant communities of Wahgunyah, Tangambalanga, Stanley and Barnawartha. The shire straddles the Hume Freeway, the main highway between Melbourne and Sydney, and also the main railway between these two destinations. Day trips to Melbourne are easy either by car, rail or coach. All towns are serviced by public transport and there is a regional airport in nearby Albury.
Indigo Shire is located in Victoria’s picturesque North East, an easy three-hour drive north of Melbourne.
The shire is a rich blend of heritage architecture and pristine natural environment nestled between Murray River frontage in the north and the lush foothills of the Alps in the southeast.
Tourism plays a huge role in the economic, social and cultural life of the shire, with thousands of visitors drawn to our region to sample our food and wine, learn more about our rich heritage, participate in our many well-known festivals and events and enjoy some of the best on and off road cycling destinations in the country.
