Fancy Striking Gold?


Fancy striking gold?

Do you know the history of our region? It's easy to get caught up in the modern day and forget that there are remnants of a bygone era scattered all around us.

It's time to fill up the gas tank, find the perfect road trip playlist, roll down the windows, and explore the bountiful backroads of Eldorado and the Woolshed Valley, nestled right here in the Rural City of Wangaratta.

Delve into an authentic piece of Australian history with meandering creeks, bush walking, bike riding or a visit to a local farm gate. Discover The Eldorado Dredge, take a relaxing stroll along Reedy Creek or Reids Walk, and just unwind in this beautiful, quiet, country environment.

Eldorado Dredge

While you're there, try your luck and have a go at some gold panning, delving into the stories of the bushrangers and miners of years gone by. The great news is, whether you go boom or bust, there's always a pot waiting for you at the smallest pub in Victoria once you're done!

So, pack up the car, put on your lucky socks, find your inside adventurer, get to know your backyard and continue to help our region get back on its feet!
