Rich in history and heritage buildings, the entire town of Mintaro was declared a State Heritage Area in 1984.

Its cultural significance is enhanced by its picturesque setting among wheat fields and vineyards surrounded by a broad band of hills.

The best way to see this unique village is on foot. Wander past old stone churches, an 1850 country pub called the Magpie & Stump, a grand manor house, a converted granary and stables. You can browse for antiques, meander through a nursery and cottage garden and hedge maze, or enjoy wines from two boutique wineries and delicious local fare from a choice of several eateries.

Martindale Hall to the south east of the town is a magnificent Georgian-style mansion built in 1879 by Edmund Bowman for his aristocratic English bride-to be who jilted him, so the legend goes.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
