Situated below the foothills, the villages are steeped in history and has to be one of Australians most loveliest. Take a walk along the streets, and be surrounded by its history. Don’t forget to have lunch at the town pub, famed for its warmth and hospitality. The area was settled over 160 years ago, but the discovery of gold in 1850 saw people flock to the district.
