What travellers are saying
- What a little treat. We were welcomed into the shop with a potted history and a bit about the process (not too long), then a tasting of the delicious seeds and oils made on the premises. It was absolutely charming and we came away with loads of goodies.Written 21 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- It’s quite relaxing to sit near the lake. Small playground for kids and toilets are available. Saw a lots of boat riders enjoying their ride at the lake. Could easily spend a couple of hours hereWritten 4 April 2021
- A sight worthy of seeing given it being a significant historical portrayal of local industry. Unique in that it is a wooden kiln as opposed to a number of iron ones that can be seen from time to time during your travel through the area. Very good information about the kiln and tobacco industry is provided on site.Written 6 January 2023
- Was lucky to be in Myrtleford on the last Saturday of the month for their farmers market. Located conveniently in the centre of town, although the offerings were small there was good variety. It is wonderful to be able to purchase local produce.Written 2 June 2022
- This is a pleasant family friendly bike trail. It meanders partly along the Ovens River and through Myrtleford with the majority of the trail off road and best ridden clockwise.Written 2 June 2023
- Pleased to see this fine specimen of a river red gum in Myrtleford. It is off the main thoroughfares but it is worth a brief look.Written 6 August 2022
- Had a nice picnic lunch on the table and bench at the top taking in the bush setting and scenery on our own. After lunch walked 100m to the lookout at the top then followed the walking track down and around then back to the top. Saw some of the history with the mine entrances and signs. Very pleasant couple of hours on a sunny winters day.Written 1 July 2020
- This memorial is to members of the defence forces who lost their lives as a result of war, since the Great War, 1914-1918, forms the heart of this precinct.
The original memorial was put here in 1923. The soldier in a uniform with a slouch hat, standing at ease with rifle, represents the members of the militia. Additional names of the fallen from WW2 were added to the monument after that conflict, as well as the Korean and Vietnam wars. Other military engagements have also been added.
There is a sculpture of Albert David Lowerson ... he lived from 1896- 1945, and he received a Victoria Cross. How he received the Cross was an act of bravery. On the 1st September 1918 at Mont St Quentin in France, an attacking party was held up by a strong point manned by 12 machine guns. Sergeant Lowerson took seven men, and attacking the flanks of this post, rushed the strong point and captured it. He had from this encounter 12 guns and 30 prisoners. He was severely wounded in his right thigh, but refused to leave the front line until the position had been consolidated.
Centrally located in the middle of town, it's definitely worth stopping to look at if you have an interest in history.Written 19 November 2022
- This is an interesting display just off the main road between Beechworth and Bright. This root system is well preserved and it is amazing to see. The story boards are informative about its history and the local area.Written 7 August 2022
- We visited the Rotary park recently and found it to be a delightful, small park beside the Ovens River. A tobacco kiln was a feature of the park.
The park was located on the edge of Myrtleford and is the start of a delightful river walk between the Rotary and Apex parks.Written 2 April 2022
- Located in the centre of Myrtleford, this visitor centre offers good information for travellers as well as a good selection of local produce. Visitor centres in Victoria also offer a travel advice and ideas for other regional areas in the state, which can be very useful. Worth stopping by if you are unsure of what to visit in the area.Written 22 May 2022
- I was driving from Mount Beauty towards Wangaratta direction ... as I was driving through Myrtleford I noted there was a small park on the left as I was driving through- adjacent to the V/line bus stop.
I parked my car and walked out to look at the statues and mosaic art in the park. Further to these there are toilets, a lookout over Happy Valley Creek, BBQ facilities, picnic tables, children's games (snakes and ladders), beautiful established trees and lush grassy areas.
In the middle of the park there are tin statues of a family and on the blocks surrounding them is information about the tobacco industry and it's impact locally. This is a really delightful area to stop and break from driving... or if you are staying in town, you should visit... it's really pretty.
Originally known as Myrtle Creek, the old town was shaped by pastoralists, gold seekers and timber mills. The arrival of large numbers of Italian migrants in the 1920s in the aftermath of WWII saw Myrtleford evolve into a major tobacco growing centre.Written 19 November 2022
- This memorial is for Elizabeth... she was born in November 1885 and died in 1918. The plaque is also in remembrance of the 63 Ovens Valley Nurses who also served.
During World War One Nurse Rothery volunteered for war service when the war broke out, and was appointed to the hospital on St. Kilda road, and next accompanied a transport to Bombay, doing hospital duty there for six months prior to her transfer to a military hospital in Nottingham served for five months at Bagthorpe Military Hospital, Nottingham, England and later to the Fairfield Hospital, London.
Recalled to Australia, she resumed, at Christmas time, the work amongst the sick and wounded soldiers, in which she was so greatly interested, at Caulfield Hospital. She left Australia for Capetown and Cairo and back on hospital ships after this stint.
She is buried in the Beechworth Cemetery.
Also nearby there is a tree that has been planted as a living memorial by Joseph Rothery Esquire, her father who lived in Myrtleford.
Also at the site is a plaque for Nurse Alice Margaret O'Donnell- born in Myrtleford in 1901, she was killed in active service on the 2/3 Australian A.G. Hospital Ship, Centaur in 1943. This ship was torpedoed 60 kilometres off the Queensland island of Moreton. Of the 363 personnel only 64 survived.Written 19 November 2022
