Journey to historic Maldon and experience what life was like during the gold rush era. Wander past old weatherboard homes, solid stone buildings and decorative shop fronts in this lovingly preserved Australian gold mining town. In recognition of this, in 2006, Maldon was awarded the 'most intact heritage streetscape' by the National Trust.
Beneath the surface
Take an afternoon to unearth hidden treasures in one of the many antique and collectable shops around town. Browse through fashion boutiques, sample local produce and handmade chocolates at one of the many cafes, or view the local arts on display.
