Accommodation for Visitors to Benalla
Wangaratta’s Apex Park Holiday Apartments is a great base for visits to Winton Motor Raceway and Benalla’s historic sites, lakes and gardents. 20 minutes in the car will get you to Benalla which makes for a lovely day trip.
In 1974, the Broken River, which the town lies on, was dammed, creating an attractive and wide waterway known as Lake Benalla. Swimming and boating activities are popular on the lake which is surrounded by parkland and walking tracks.
On the western bank of the river lies the town's botanical gardens which feature an art gallery, the Sir Weary Dunlop memorial statue and Benalla's famous rose gardens which are home to a large variety of colourful roses.
The eastern bank of Lake Benalla is lined with a recreational park adjacent to the council offices and a network of bicycle and walking tracks which traverse the several islands that exist in the lake.
North-east of Benalla is the Winton Motor Raceway which hosts car, motorcycle and superkart racing.
