Melbourne & Victoria - Goldfields & The Grampians (Chapter)
This is the Goldfields & the Grampians chapter from Lonely Planet’s Melbourne & Victoria guidebook.
History, nature and culture combine spectacularly in Victoria’s regional heart: in the grand regional cities of Bendigo and Ballarat, and the charming towns of Castlemaine, Kyneton and Maldon. This is a fantastic region for touring, with a range of contrasting landscapes, from pretty countryside and green forests, red earth and granite country, to farmland, orchards and wineries. Further west, there’s a different type of history to experience at the Grampians National Park, one of Victoria’s great natural wonders.
