Chiltern

Chiltern - High Country - Victoria

Chiltern's gold mining heritage is a predominant sight with its characteristic streetscapes beautifully preserved, featuring authentic buildings and vast shady verandahs. Today, this enchanting historic village emits the peacefulness of a pioneering town accompanied with good old fashioned hospitality. Surrounded by fertile pastoral farmland Chiltern is nestled in the hills of the idyllic Chiltern Mount Pilot National Park and has been embraced by visionaries, keen for that authentic 1800's background and nostalgia of the past, for many films. The tranquil village is yours to explore and provides the ideal base from which to explore the Rutherglen and Barnawartha wineries for a sample of local quality wines.

Visit the commercial apiary and put taste to the test with a variety of honey at the Chiltern Honey Farm and wander the streets that have become a living memorial flaunting many historic buildings listed on the National Register and some owned by the National Trust. Bird watchers will encounter the exceptional diversity of bird species in the area thanks to the high quality of habitat safeguarded by the Chiltern National Park and surrounds. Birdwatchers can embark on an inspirational experience easily accessible on foot from town or a short cycle or car journey to admire such threatened woodland species as the Regent Honeyeater, Swift Parrot, Turquoise Parrot and Square-tailed Kite.
