Do and See

Nagambie Lakes is bursting with things to do and see. The local council has an events website which you can take a look here. And we have put together a list of our favourites – albeit some are a little querky (in no particular order):

  1. Whroo Gold mine, cemetery and  Ngurai-Lllam-Wurrung Rock well: The Balaclava main mine shaft is some 122 meters deep and the open cut 80x40x 30 meters deep. Commenced in the early 1850,s by 1853 there were 2100 inhabitants.  Total production 40,000 oz
  2. Rushworth: a goldfields town founded in 1853 and famous for having the Rotunda that Nagambie didn’t want!
  3. Parramatta Gulley eucalyptus distillery:  The present owners, The Jones family established the distillery in 1917. They farm a number of coppiced iron bark sites dotted through out the forest. They have a reputation for producing the finest grade eucalyptus oil in Australia.  Worth a visit but hard to find although its not far off the road and only a short distance from Rushworth.  The Jones don’t advertise and sometimes they are not there so give them a call on t. 03 5856 1280
