Special Interests


Around the Town & Region


Maldon has to be the one of the best locations in Victoria for capturing the romance of the gold rush era and natural rugged landscape. 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. You could easily plan an entire week of photography in Maldon and its stunning surrounds...

Around the Town & Region

Architecture & Stories

Make the most of some of the local's preferred locations. Affectionately known as 'The Roo', a friendly place where local folk gather. The menu is based on delicious local produce, including wines and meats from Maldon and surrounds. The area is known for big shiraz!


 Still below the building there is said to be a series of tunnels, used during the gold rush days to discretely & securely move gold from the Bank onto the coach for transport to Melbourne. Another tunnel was used to take the bodies from the morgue to the Undertakers across the road. 


Around the Town & Region

Walking & Cycling

The Castlemaine to Maldon Trail allows walkers and cyclists to enjoy stunning natural surroundings.

The 17.7 km walking and cycling trail links the shire's largest towns of Castlemaine and Maldon. Look out for the steam train as you walk, run or ride the trail, alongside the historic goldfields railway.

If you are not up for the return trip, travel back by the steam train!

5 Minute Walk

Machinery Museum

Go see the world’s only working, Cornelius Pedis, a 1877 steam driven engine. There is the 100 year old steam driven electric generator, valued at more than $700.000 including a giant very rare marble switchboard and an equally rare upright steam driven pump all from Thompson’s Foundry.


5 Minute Walk

History Museum

The journey from tumultuous 1850s gold-mining town, through boom times and decline took an unprecedented turn in the 1960s. Between 1964 and 1969 Maldon’s historic 19th and early 20th century buildings and streetscapes were rediscovered, surveyed and declared ‘Notable’ by the National Trust. Once again Maldon was leading the way, this time as a ‘poster child’ for the fledgling heritage conservation movement.
