Welcome to the community website for the township of Oxley, Victoria.
Oxley is a thriving semi-rural community of approximately 300 people located just south of Wangaratta. It is worth a drive along the Snow Road to Oxley to try the famous lemon tart at the King River Cafe, pick up some fresh berries at Blue Ox Berries or taste some local wines at John Gehrig Wines. Oxley is also part of the renowned Milawa Gourmet Region and the King Valley wine region, well known for cool climate and Italian varietals. The town has many active volunteers, making Oxley a great community to live in. This website proudly supports the Oxley Residents’ Association, Oxley Hall Committee, Oxley Recreation Reserve Committee and the Oxley CFA.
