About the Murrumbateman Winegrowing district


Murrumbateman is an old gold mining town, on the Yass Plains, just an easy 30 minute drive north of Canberra and 2.5 hours south of Sydney.

Historically a wool and beef growing district, Murrumbateman in recent years has emerged as a first class tourism destination, with cool climate vineyards, wineries, cafes and restaurants, B&Bs, markets and other regular events.

The first inhabitants of the Murrumbateman area were the indigenous Ngunnawal tribe and in 1821, the exploratory party of Hamilton Hume became the first known group of Europeans to explore the Yass Plains.
