Wedderburn - Places to See

Wedderburn
Quiet township which was once a goldrush boom town.
At first glance the quiet rural town of Wedderburn may appear to be no more than a small supply centre to the farmlands around town. However, it was once a populous and very rich goldmining settlement and retains one of Victoria's few remaining active goldmines (albeit a rather idiosyncratic one). In fact, the town's tourism is very much oriented to this aspect of the past. It is located 214 km north-west of Melbourne on the Calder Highway, between Inglewood and Charlton. The population is currently around 750.

Melville Caves - Fast Facts

Melville Caves
Huge granite boulders once used as a hideout by the bushranger Captain Melville
When we think of caves we usually think of limestone caves with beautiful formations. The Melville Caves are not limestone. They are a collection of huge granite boulders sitting on the top of a massive granite tor in the Kooyoora State Park. It is the spaces between these huge boulders which form the 'caves' or 'cavities'. However, the cavities are, in fact, a series of large fissures which have formed in the weathered granite. They are located 205 km north-west of Melbourne via the Calder Highway and 21 km west of Inglewood (for information on the caves and the park, consult the entry under 'Things to See').
