Welcome to Clunes

A quaint historic gold mining town, located in the heart of the Victorian Central Goldfields region. Located only 80 minutes’ drive west of Melbourne CBD and 25 minutes from Ballarat, Clunes is blessed with history, culture, spectacular scenery and exciting events.

Clunes, with its gold rush history, a largely untouched historic streetscape, a blossoming artist’s scene, idyllic scenic walks & a bit of quirky history make for an interesting & enjoyable destination to live and work, get away for the weekend, or day trip destination.

Dotted with dusty antique and collectable stores, vineyards and wineries, rustic bed & breakfasts and scenic walks, the Victorian Goldfields is a hidden treasure for the adventurous and curious. All this makes Clunes a popular weekend destination for bushwalkers, gold prospectors, treasure hunters, collectors, vintage car clubs, history buffs and families seeking an escape to the country.

We hope to see you soon!
