Chiltern

  • Venture off the High Country's beaten tracks and stumble upon tiny villages like Chiltern, which came of age following the discovery of gold in the 1850s. These days over 20 buildings in Chiltern are registered or owned by the National Trust. Wander through the village's well-preserved nineteenth century streetscape and imagine you're on the set of an Australian period film. Take a self-guided walk past the historic post office, courthouse and masonic hall, as well as the original police cells. Visit the Federal Standard newspaper office and Dow's Pharmacy and discover how much things have changed since the nineteenth century.
