Mangalore: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Historic Hughes Creek Bridge


Hughes Creek was named after the first settler in Avenel, for many years it was a popular overnight stop for drovers. The bridge was built in 1859 by contractor Hugh Dalrymple for the Board of Lands and Works in Victoria.

The Historic Hughes Creek Bridge is perhaps better known for its association to Ned Kelly. At the age of 11, Ned rescued Richard Shelton who had fallen into the creek after trying to cross over on a tree bridge. The incident occurred only 150 metres downstream from the Bridge.

A green silk cummerbund was awarded to Ned for his bravery by Richard's parents. Ned was wearing the cummerbund when he was captured at the Siege of Glenrowan.

WW1 Memorial Park


Seymour's World War One Memorial Park is a tribute to the district's men and women who served.

In November 1927, Memorial Gates were built by returned soldiers at a cost of ?412 at the entrance to the then Seymour Soldiers Memorial Hospital and list many of those from the district who served. The gates were moved in 1959 to the entrance of the new hospital, and then again in 1996 to their current location.

In 2004 the RSL refurbished the names on the granite pillars, in 2012 the Gates were refurbished and in 2013 the lights were replicated. On Remembrance Day 2016, the WW1 Memorial Park was unveiled by Seymour RSL.

In front of the gates is "Bluey", the statue of a World War One soldier, who stands atop 10 glass panels which detail the WW1 service of 50 of the district's men and women. The stories make captivating and emotive reading. Also on the site is a young Lone Pine tree, alongside which is a bronze plaque telling its own evocative story.

It is hoped that visitors will be moved by the journeys they will take with Seymour's servicemen and women during the Great War.

Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk


The Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk was opened in March 2013. The Wall includes both the names of all Australian veterans who served in the Vietnam War and a photographic timeline.

The Commemorative Walk is not to memorialise those who served in Vietnam and/or those who paid the ultimate price, but to commemorate the service all who played their part in what turned out to be a tumultuous part of Australia's history. Plaques in the interpretive centre give an accurate history of the times prior to military commitment, the period of involvement and the aftermath.

The Walk meanders amidst native trees and grasses that resemble rubber trees and rice paddies. Plants synonymous with Vietnam. 106 panels of DigiGlass with the name of every Serviceman and Servicewoman who served in their various capacities. The names are separated by the Service in alphabetical order. Behind the names is the picture story of the Vietnam conflict and the wall is lite of an evening.

A recreation of the Luscombe bowl, red brick pavers, a black granite memorial Cairn, a Centurion Tank, a replica of the Long Tan Cross, a Huey helicopter and other artillery pieces complete the walk.

Mangalore: Travel Tips

Seymour Visitor Information Centre


Seymour Visitor Information Centre is located on the Goulburn River in Seymour, only an hour's drive north of Melbourne.

One heritage site in particular is Seymour's Old Court House, it was completed in the years of 1864. For nine years beginning in 1865, the Court house was also utilised as a Telegraph Office.

During the First World War more additions and repairs were carried out on the building as well as some alterations. The Court House was used up until the new and current building was completed in 1973.

In 1973 Sir George Reid, the Attorney General of Victoria, officially opened the new Court House. In 1974 the Old Court House was in danger of being demolished but was given a reprieve by the Government Buildings Advisory Council and the Minister of Public Works.

The Old Seymour Court House is now on the National Trust register of important buildings, and houses various committee groups.

Seymour Court House still remains and is now run by local volunteers as a Visitor Information Centre. The information centre creates a warm friendly atmosphere and our volunteers provide a professional service to travellers looking for all kinds of towns, places, attractions and information.
