Things to do

Historic Maldon in the Central Victorian Goldfields is classified by the National Trust as “Australia’s First Notable Town”. There are many things to see and do in the area including riding the steam train, visiting Carman’s Tunnel gold mine or Vintage Machinery Museum.

Take the Historic Town Walk, or one of the other marked walks in the town or bush, or just browse in the secondhand, antique, craft or other specialty shops.

Enjoy a meal, a snack or a coffee at one of the several hotels, restaurants, cafes or tea rooms in Maldon.

To assist you with your stay, we recommend that you visit the award winning Maldon Visitor Information Centre in High Street.
