Castlemaine

Hailed as the latest vibrant and exciting tourist destination of central Victoria

The historic township of Castlemaine is renowned for its eclectic arts scene and rich gold rush history. Stop by a local artist’s studio to find sculpture, ceramics, jewellery, paintings and textiles, or experience the village’s artistic heritage by taking in a concert at the Theatre Royal, Australia’s oldest continually operating theatre.

Hailed as the latest vibrant and exciting tourist destination of central Victoria, The Mill Castlemaine is worth a visit with a mix of food and hospitality vendors, manufacturers, and retail outlets.

Collectors love Castlemaine as it offers a great range of unique and eclectic stores that line Mostyn and Barker streets and the intriguing wall-to-wall relics at the Restorers Barn.
Visitors can explore the town’s rich history and heritage with a self-guided tour of its grand public buildings, wide streets, ornate hotels and century-old shops. Hire an MP3 player from the Visitor Information Centre in the historic Market Building on Mostyn Street and start exploring.
