About the neighbourhood
The Maryborough Railway Station is a sight not to be missed, you can't help but appreciate its grandour. Some say Maryborough, is a town attached to a railway station! For those who love our history, Clunes is just 15 mins away and is famous for the buildings that line the Main Street, as filmed in many historic movies, Ned Kelly being one. Maldon, Ballarat, Bendigo, we are central to them all. Local wineries abound as do the scenic walking trails. Spot kangaroos in their natural habitat! Bird life aplenty and picturesque views as you travel through the area.
