Getaway to Bacchus Marsh, Victoria

Bacchus Marsh is located mid-way between Melbourne and Ballarat, in a rich and fertile valley that consists of orchards, market gardens and pastoral fields. The township itself has a long history, dating back to the days when gold was first discovered in nearby Ballarat during the 1850s.

The town offers a mix of retail outlets in both historic and modern buildings. Attractions within town include the historic Court House, the Tudor-style Border Inn, the Blacksmith's Cottage, and a number of churches dating back to the 1800s. The Chicory Kiln, in Taverner Street, has been preserved since its construction in 1885 when chicory roots were roasted before being ground and added to coffee.

Bacchus Marsh is surrounded by a rich collection of state parks, national parks and waterways which offer bushwalking tracks and the opportunity to explore the scenic gorges and ranges in the area. There are also picnic spots along the Lerderderg River, Werribee River and at the historic bridge over Djerriwarrh Creek, just off the Western Highway. The Merrimu Reservoir, just a short drive drive north of town, offers BBQ and picnic facilities beside the water supply for towns in the area.
