May 22, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
LateRooms.com can reveal that people who love nothing more than discovering fabulous local delicacies and sampling some of the finest wines should consider booking accommodation in Melbourne in June.

For one weekend, from June 12th to 14th, the Glenrowan wine region will be full of attractions for visitors to enjoy.

Taking place over the long weekend for the Queen's birthday, the festival offers people the chance to see the area's wineries in a different light.

Holidaymakers can follow the route between the different establishments in the region, stopping off to participate in activities such as wine tasting tutorials and native bush trails.

Many of the wineries will also host special exhibitions, with visitors able to learn more about the history of wine making at the heritage museum at Bailey's of Glenrowan or admire some classic cars on show at Morrisons of Glenrowan.

The festival will run each day from 10:00 until 17:00 (local time), with tickets for the various events and activities starting from AU$5.

For any history buffs, the region of Glenrowan may hold an appeal that goes beyond its wineries.

The final siege and capture of legendary bushranger Ned Kelly took place in the area and anyone interested in this period of history will be able to find numerous museums and attractions to keep them entertained.
