Since 1974, thousands of people have descended on Rutherglen for one of the biggest wine festivals in the country. A general admission ticket to Winery Walkabout gets you access to wine tastings, live music, entertainment, tours and more at 19 wineries, making for an epic jam-packed, fun-filled long weekend!


Many wineries also set up markets, food vans, masterclasses, buffet breakfasts, dinners, VIP tasting areas and more. Winery Walkabout is the best way to get to know Rutherglen and enjoy the atmosphere with your friends.


There's a reason people have been coming back for Walkabout for over 40 years - find out for yourself and get your tickets! 

If you are a food vendor wanting to be a part of the festival, you are best to contact the wineries direct as they all choose their own food for the event.
