The Melbourne University's Dookie campus threw open the doors today for prospective students on a fine example of a northern Victorian day.

The University offered tours and exhibitions demonstrating its breadth of rural and agricultural courses, as well as a chance to see the robotic dairy, the sheep flock, check out the education facilities and stop by the winery for tastings of the 2016 Dookie shiraz.

One of the most popular events, especially for the secondary students, was the drone demonstration where the agricultural applications were explained.

The $3 million redeveloped Swinburne Hall learning and teaching building was also officially opened by deputy vice-chancellor, Ross McPherson.
