Omeo
Historic goldmining town on the edges of the Snowy Mountains.
Omeo is an old goldmining town in the mountain country 97 km north of Bruthen and 400 km north-east of Melbourne via the Princes and Omeo Highways. Now a quiet and sleepy township of around 300 people, based on cattle, sheep and timber, it was once a rugged, unruly frontier town. Indeed, the first magistrate, Judge Browne, better known as early Australian novelist Rolf Boldrewood (famous for his novel Robbery Under Arms), regarded the Omeo goldfields as the roughest in Australia.
