Wedderburn

Spurred by local claims that more than 80 per cent of all the major gold nuggets found in the world have been discovered within a 40km radius of Wedderburn, fossickers continue to flock to this Calder Highway town in Victoria's famed Golden Triangle.

The fact that nuggets worth more than $20,000 were discovered in a town backyard in the 1950s is an added incentive for modern-day prospectors, some of whom still leave Wedderburn a little richer.

The historic streetscapes, museum-cum-general store, pottery studios and district conservation parks and scenic reserves add to the appeal of this town 75km north-west of Bendigo.

A 16km drive north from town takes you to Wychitella Forest Reserve which conserves a remnant of mallee forest that is a sanctuary for native wildlife, especially the rare mallee fowl and marsupial mouse. Mallee fowls mate for life and the hen lays its eggs in a large mound within a large distinctive ring of leaf litter, bark and twigs. The pair"s territorial "patch" which is about 25m in diameter is maintained year-round by the cock.

Rock-hoppers and bush-walkers will be in their element on the slopes of Mt Korong on the south-eastern side of Wedderburn.

Wedderburn: Travel Tips

Loddon Visitor Information Centre


Come to Loddon Visitor Information Centre, it is in a region where families are valued, breathe in the fresh air, sit around campfires, walk the family pet, sip award winning wines or watch sunrises and sunsets.

The Loddon Tourism Area is situated adjacent to the City of Greater Bendigo and forms part of the Goldfields and the Murray tourism regions. Covering an area of 6,700 square kilometres, and containing attractions varying from Aboriginal sites to early European settlements, goldfields, lakes, State and National Parks, and nature reserves.

The region is mainly unspoilt and can offer visitors an experience in unhurried holidaying whether this is for an extended stay or a brief visit. The towns still bear authentic streetscapes from the gold rush era and the State Parks are still in their natural state.

The Loddon Tourism Area can offer a base for visiting large areas of Central and Northern Victoria, and can be easily reached by road from Melbourne, Bendigo or Mildura via the Calder Highway, or from Echuca and the other Murray River towns via the Loddon Valley Highway. The roads within the region are generally quiet and provide easy peaceful driving. Public transport also services most of the towns within the region.

Recreational facilities abound across the Shire. Sporting options for the visitor include golf, water skiing; lawn bowls bushwalking, bike riding, tennis and fishing. You may wish to browse through local shops or visit wineries and museums.
