Come Home to Chiltern 2016

Chiltern North East Victoria AustraliaWelcome to Chiltern Australia

Chiltern is a fascinating historic village, built upon the solid values of its mining heritage. It’s distinguished by carefully preserved streetscapes with historic brick buildings and wooden verandahs.

The miners’ cottages, Athenaeum Museum and Dow’s Pharmacy tell the story of our early pioneers; their struggles and their joys shared by a community with the pioneer vision to become what Chiltern is today – a peaceful, country town nestling in the hills of the spectacular surrounding National Parkland.

Visitors to Chiltern will experience the nostalgia of the past with all the benefits of good, old fashioned hospitality and warmth.

“Witness the parkland awash in the gold and mauve hue of the wild orchids, lilies and the golden wattle, or explore the historic buildings under shady verandahs, whilst enjoying the old world charm and hospitality of Chiltern.” – Chiltern resident
