Visiting the Shire

Mount Alexander Shire is the ideal daytrip or overnight destination.

Perfectly located in central Victoria, just over an hour from Melbourne by car or rail, Mount Alexander Shire is the ideal daytrip or overnight destination.

Once the richest alluvial goldfield in the world; the burst of wealth, stories and remarkable gold-rush buildings paved the way for a region with so much to offer.

With townships like Castlemaine, Maldon and Harcourt, it’s now a much-loved escape for foodies, nature lovers, walkers, cyclists, car enthusiasts, history buffs and art aficionados – all looking to discover their own version of gold.
