Warburton is a mountain hamlet that retains the style and pace of a past age. A 75 kilometer drive from the center of the city.
Melbourne’s muddy Yarra is here a swift, clear trout stream, flowing through a dramatic alpine valley. The river is flanked by well maintained paths in a park like setting.
Warburton enjoyed a brief flush of prosperity in the early gold rushes of the nineteenth century, but thereafter the town’s economy was supported by logging and tourism.
