Winery Walkabout 2017

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Dust off your favourite wig or Disney character costume as regional Victoria's biggest wine festival is fast approaching. We've planned a jam-packed line up of wine, food, music and entertainment at S&K so buy your tickets soon so you don't miss out. With a fun and friendly party vibe, the Rutherglen Winery Walkabout a great way to warm up this winter, especially if your group comes in the ever popular 'onesie' theme!


It's Victoria's oldest wine festival and since Walkabout's first year in 1974, it's grown to be one of the best events on Australia's festival calendar. More than ten thousand people come to Rutherglen to taste wine, dance to live music, visit the fair in town, warm up with great food and generally have a great time. Each winery offers unique events and activities so browse the brochure, gather your friends and enjoy a great weekend in the country.


Tickets are limited and will sell out. They are only available online so head to to secure yours. There are a range of tickets available depending on how many days you visit, if you want to use the shuttle bus or if you are taking advantage of the regional shuttle bus leaving from Albury. Ticket prices increase as we get closer to the event so the sooner you purchase, the better value it is.
