Places nearby Broadford


Built in 1842 to catch travellers to and from Melbourne 72 kilometres to the south, the Sunday Creek Inn - so named because explorers Hume and Hovell happened to camp by a nearby creek on the Sabbath - was the seed from which the small town of Broadfoot took root.

By 1854, when the town was gazetted, allotments were selling for $4 each around the cluster of hotels, a blacksmith shop and several stores.

When the railway between Melbourne and Albury-Wodonga cut off passing traffic it took a bold decision by James McDougall to open a paper mill to save the town. The paper industry still underpins the town's economy.

Trout lure fishermen to the local streams and some of the town's older buildings are preserved in Pioneer Park. The nearby Mt Disappointment State Forest boasts the 50m Murchison Falls and offers walking tracks and picnic grounds.

The town has a full events calendar that includes the Country Music Festival in February, a March Hare Fair, a Scottish Festival in October and the Broadford Show in November.

Broadford: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Monument Hill Reserve

Located an hour north of Melbourne in Kilmore, Monument Hill Reserve is a fantastic recreational area perfect for activities such as bush-walking and horse riding.

Situated at the top of the Hill is the Hume and Hovell monument. This was erected to honour the explorers whose expedition played a significant role in establishing the colony of Victoria. The monument is a watchtower from the former Kilmore Gaol. From the top of the monument visitors can look out over Kilmore and the surrounding countryside.

From the monument, follow one of the walking tracks that leads down the ridge to the golf course, cricket club or Kilmore Hospital Reservoir. Local wildlife is abundant. Lizards, birds, echidnas, kangaroos and wallabies can be spotted around the reserve.
