Show map


Stroll through an impressive collection of nineteenth century bluestone buildings in Kilmore, one of Victoria's oldest inland settlements, and ride on a hundred-year-old tram to complete the heritage experience.

Take a second glance at the restaurant, café, or award-winning bed and breakfast you find yourself in; more than 40 buildings in Kilmore are listed on the Register of National Estate.

Around town
Have lunch in a converted old bluestone building, visit the old gaol, built in 1859, then wander through the many specialty shops selling all manner of antiques, arts and crafts.

Trams and cable cars
Get an old-fashioned transport fix at the tramways museum at Bylands, riding on a tram from 1906 and viewing the 'preserved tramway fleet' of cable cars and electric trams that once serviced Melbourne and Adelaide.

Adventures in nature
Hike up Mount Disappointment and look for wombats and wallabies, stopping to admire the rich and varied bird life. Try your hand at hang gliding in Tallarook State Park and visit popular rock climbing sites, or take a more sedate scenic drive through the picturesque Valley of a Thousand Hills.
