Connewirricoo: 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 1,800 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.

Bilston's Tree


It is estimated Bilston's Tree - a red gum - was a seedling about 1200 AD and would have reached very large proportions by the time of the arrival of European Settlers.

It was a well known landmark and referred to as 'Big Tree' or 'The Big Fella' by the middle of 20th century. The tree is now familiarly known as Bilston's Tree.

A large limb broke off the northern side of the crown in 1973, and from the Eastern side in 2013, but this has not affected the general health of the tree which remains a tourist attraction for the Casterton District.

A local sculptor has had the opportunity to create some beautiful animal carvings on the fallen limb.
