Few towns have done as good a job of preserving their history as Maldon, a historic gold mining town 35 minutes south-west of Bendigo. Maldon boomed in the 1850s at the height of the gold rush and remarkably much of the streetscape remains largely unchanged. In 1966 it became the first Australian town to be classified by the National Trust, in recognition of its success in preserving its 19th century heritage. The town has many tours and workshops available to experience throughout the year as well as three self-guided historic walks taking you around Maldon’s most notable historic buildings, including the Kangaroo Hotel, the Freemasons’ Hall, the Royal Hotel & Theatre and Warnock’s Flour Mill.
