Nagambie is located in a farming district between Seymour and Shepparton, around 90 minutes from Melbourne. The town is on the shores of man-made Lake Nagambie, formed by the construction of the Goulburn Weir.
The lake is popular for boating, swimming and rowing, and is surrounded by parks with great views and picnic spots. The weir has a public walkway, offering great views of the lake. It is also spanned by the longest bridge of its type in Victoria, Kirwan’s Bridge – at 300 metres in length, and over 100 years old.
Nagambie is popular with tourists, both for those who love water sports, and lovers of wine. It is surrounded by many wineries, in the neighbouring towns of of Tabilk, Mitchellstown and Murchison.
The town’s main claim to fame is that it is the birthplace of the unbeaten Australian racehorse Black Caviar. There is a statue of the great mare in Jacobsons Outlook, on the shores of Lake Nagambie.
