Benalla Travel Guide: 36 reviews and 114 photos


Benalla is situated just off the Hume Highway. These days you have to divert to get there, just like most towns on the highway.
Benalla's busy commercial centre begins at the eastern bank of Lake Benalla, mainly centred along the thoroughfare of Bridge Street and neighbouring Nunn Street. Historic buildings in the town centre include the Commercial Hotel (built in 1860), the town hall (1882) and the National Bank.
The town also has significant religious buildings, the old Presbyterian and Catholic edifices being typical examples.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A fair bit to see, nice parks, good architecture

    Reading the town name Benalla on your travel pages, I thought that I see to remember that I may have passed through here many years ago. Interesting sculpture! Reminds me of some place in India.
