Balmoral

Set in Red Gum country to the west of the Grampians, the small town of Balmoral lies on the route taken into South Australia by horse-drawn gold convoys, in the days of the Gold Rush.

It flanks the Glenelg River whose waters are dammed to feed the huge Rocklands Reservoir which provides irrigation for the wheat and wool growers of the Wimmera district to the north.

The major local and recreational attraction, the reservoir and surrounding parkland is a popular fishing, boating and camping area. The park is a mass of wildflower blooms in the spring, while it also features Aboriginal rock galleries and magnificent views.

The reservoir and the Black Range State Park separates Balmoral from the Grampians, one of Victoria's major tourist lures. Visitors are drawn to the Grampians National Park by the natural grandeur of the sandstone ranges and the ancient Aboriginal rock art galleries. Archeologists believe that some of the paintings on the gallery walls, which are protected from daylight and rain, are up to 20,000 years old.

Balmoral: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Harrow Discovery Centre and Johnny Mullagh Interpretive Centre


Nestled in the rolling hills of Victoria's Western District on the banks of the Glenelg River, the Harrow Discovery Centre is the heart of Victoria's oldest inland settlement.

More than a visitor centre, the centre will take you on one of the most incredible journeys in Australian history.

In 1868, a team of Aboriginal stock workers from south-west Victoria, were transformed into Australia's first international touring sports team to England.

Almost 150 years on, the centre is dedicated to telling their story and in particular that of their best all-rounder, Johnny 'Unaarrimin' Mullagh.

A rabbiter and shearer, Johnny Mullagh delivered more than 1800 overs to the best batsmen in the world at the time with an average of 1/10.

Join in and follow the amazing journey and learn of the unbelievable achievements of Australia's First XI.

In addition to the centre's Indigenous cricketing history, the band of volunteer staff has several touring programs to offer to guests, including the award-winning 'You Must Remember This ... '.

The centre is a true destination for sport and history buffs, alike.

Shirley Valentine


Shirley Valentine by award winning Willy Russell and starring Mandi Lodge (Menopause The Musical and Always...Patsy Cline) is a wonderfully entertaining monologue by a 42 year-old Liverpool mother whose self-esteem has been battered by school, marriage and life in general. When her best friend wins a Greek holiday for two, Shirley grasps the chance to head for the sun, to re-find herself, follow her dreams and to get a new lease on life.

With much humour, warmth, sympathy, human insight and a great deal of empathy for his female protagonist, Willy Russell brilliantly shows Shirley breaking out of the mould in which she was cast by society.

Denny Lawrence, Director, described Shirley Valentine as a modern classic, with its theme of achieving your full potential remaining universal and relevant today.
