Trawool, originally named 'Traawool', the indigenous word for 'wild water', is a district dominated by agriculture, dairy and unforgettable scenery. The area was first explored by Hume and Hovell in 1824, and later settled as a large sheep station.

The district is bounded in the East by the Bald Hills and to the West by the Warrigul Rocks. In 1983, the National Trust awarded the Trawool Valley a Scenic Classification, recognising its importance as a scenic, geological and cultural site, and for its great diversity of flora and fauna. For this reason it is the perfect destination to enjoy outdoor pursuits.

With cafes, a gallery, resort and boutique self contained accommodation, the Trawool Valley is perfect for your next getaway.
