Dargo

Enjoy a glimpse into one of Victoria's most remote communities, nestled in the foothills of the legendary Dargo High Plains in Gippsland.

The tiny township of Dargo was established as a resting place and a supply town for miners on their way to the nearby Grant, Talbotville and Crooked River goldfields during the minor gold rush of the mid-1800s.

These days Dargo has a population of approximately 150 and is an entry point for the Alpine National Park, Avon Wilderness Park and Mitchell River National Park.

The wilderness around Dargo boasts first-rate 4WD touring, rafting, fishing and canoeing. The area is also an excellent destination for horse riding, bush walking and hiking. Four-wheel drive out to Wonnangatta Station, once Victoria's most remote cattle station.

Dargo is known for its groves of century-old walnut trees that line the valley floor. Many high country cattlemen have homes in the stockbreeding and agricultural district.

Dargo is around 320 kilometres from Melbourne CBD with a travel time of just under four hours.
