A vibrant pastoral history, rich volcanic soils and philanthropic benefactors have left a legacy of cultured streetscapes and magnificent historic buildings just north of the coast. Well tended avenues of elm, oak and plane evoke images of England on volcanic plain.
Visit our volcanic landscapes in spring or winter and experience our very own `Lakes District`, enjoy an emerald carpet of fertile pasture punctuated by volcanic peaks and crystal clear lakes.
Lake and inland fishing
Stunning landscapes, charming historic towns and country hospitality ice the cake for a weekend or weeklong fishing adventure. Good water levels and well managed restock have resulted in one Victoria's premier inland fishing areas.
A golden opportunity
Why not make the goldfields a part of your next trip to the region?
