Destinations

When gold was discovered in Victoria over 150 years ago it left a rich and lasting legacy in almost every town in the Goldfields. Today visitors can tour the majestic Victorian streetscapes of thriving regional cities Bendigo and Ballarat or explore delightful villages such as Maldon, Castlemaine, Heathcote and Dunolly.

Around the galleries

The Goldfields region is an arts and cultural haven boasting outstanding galleries with rich collections of local and European art. Wander through two of Australia's finest regional galleries – the Art Gallery of Ballarat and Bendigo Art Gallery. Explore the eclectic arts scene in Castlemaine, and make time for the Edwardian and modern works at the Castlemaine Art Gallery. Take the kids along to an event at the Central Goldfields Gallery, or hunt out smaller private collections and artist studios dotted all over the region.

Looking back
