Overview

Maldon

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.

Food and wine

To get a taste of the area, follow the Maldon Taste of Gold food and wine trail. Sample local wines and produce from farmgates and cellar doors along the way. Not surprisingly, there are many regional events that showcase the area's gourmet strengths, so be sure to plan ahead.

Out and about

Take a nostalgic journey on board the Victorian Goldfields Steam Railway. Take in views of the surrounding countryside or go on a drive up Mt Tarrangower to get a 360 degree view of the area from the lookout tower.
