• Cornella Canola Walk


Immerse yourself in a field of brilliant yellow.  360 degrees of colour.

Central Victoria is known for its amazing canola fields which flower from August into early September. The time is ripe for a visit to the iconic Colbinabbin/Cornella canola fields as they come into bloom and colour the paddocks fluorescent yellow!

In conjunction with the Shiraz Republic and Cornella Brewery, we have established a viewing platform and walking track through the flowering yellow crop.

Most farmers, understandably, do not want tourists entering their canola fields and unknowingly destroying the crop and potentially spreading disease but the Shiraz Republic has created a track and viewing platform in their 100 acre fields of canola so that tourists can wander through the canola field and take their insta-worthy selfies!

Walk the canola fields. Immerse yourself in the sea of yellow colour. Park safely at the Shiraz Republic cellar door. Walk the Canola Trail. Experience the 360 degree wonder. 

Enjoy a drink and something to eat at our picturesque cellar door or visit nearby Colbinabbin to view the spectacular Silo Art.

Feel like a short getaway? Stay in one of their cabins and take advantage of early morning or evening photography.
