The fully preserved ancient town of Meldon offers a wonderful experience of immersion in the life of an early settlement of gold prospectors. This tiny town is located among one of the most beautiful landscapes of the region. Hills, forests and exotic trees are a wonderful frame of narrow streets and buildings of the XIX century. In 1966, Meldon was declared Australia’s “First Landmark City” by National Heritage. Numerous cafes, galleries and museums serve the flow of tourists visiting the city.
Other lures include a 40-minute round trip by steam train to Mackleford and Tunnel Pocket, an old gold mine. Visiting Easter, you will see the famous golden leaves of plane trees, oaks and elms. There is also a fair with an Easter parade and a street carnival.
