Wangaratta is located in the north-east of Victoria on the main route from Melbourne to Sydney and is at the northern end-point of the Great Alpine Road which traverses the Great Dividing Range and passes through the all year round holiday town of Bright.
Wangaratta is a bustling regional centre servicing a retail catchment area of 58,000 people.
The day we arrived was really hot (40°C and more), but we managed to visit the center and the parks. Afterwards we had a rest in the airconditioned public library (with free wifi access!).
