"Peace and Quiet and very central"

We found Benalla to be a great place to bring up kids. The walking paths and parks around the lake are absolutely beautiful. It's also very central to larger towns if more specialized shops are required.
Pros

  • Great weather
  • Excellent childcare facilities
Cons
  • Not a huge range of shops

"a try-hard town that partially makes it"

The place works for a country town. Nice lake (that can flood the town due to bad planning), art gallery, old-ish swimming pool center and a small airport. Main street full of shops. Schools are good.

"Great Place to relax"

We have just recently bought a property in Benalla, we have say that the town is great beats city life, it's a great place to relax, walk around the lake, the people are very friendly, plenty of cafes' and restaurants to choose from, the townhouse we bought is just magnificant.
We love the place especially the close proximity to Shepparton, Wangaratta and Yarrawonga.
