The small chapel in Gooroombat is also a must see, and there's a small donation box inside the front door - please give in exchange for your photos. As well as the reward of some amazing artwork, we'll break up the straight country roads with a swing through the Warby ranges and past the Winton Wetlands to finish in the historical town of Glenrowan, just south of Wangaratta.
