Wander through the charming streets of Chiltern and you will be whisked back in time to the booming period of the gold rush era. This fascinating, small town is distinguished by carefully preserved streetscapes from the mid-19th Century, honouring the solid value of its mining heritage and telling the story - the struggles and joys - of the early pioneers.
Considered a sacred site amongst local Indigenous people, the Yeddonba Aboriginal Cultural Site illustrates the art of the Dhudhuroa people, the dominant Indigenous clan of the area and a sub-clan of the Pangarang people of the Goulburn Valley.
Located between Beechworth and the low hills surrounding Chiltern, Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park includes the striking Mt Pilot Range and Woolshed Falls, protecting the box-ironbark forest that once covered much of north-east Victoria.
You need only to walk down the main street of Chiltern to know exactly when and why this quaint little town was formed. A bustling hub during the gold-rush, you can still visit old mines and see heritage listed buildings, but Chiltern is much more than that!
