What travellers are saying
- We arrived to see the first Agricultural Show in 3 years but unfortunately it was washed out. However we then had all morning to wander the streets of Clunes taking in the history and sights around the town. It is well worth visiting - a step back in time.Written 24 December 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Wee wandered around the exhibits which were very professionally displayed and well kept. For a local history museum it was very well maintained.Written 24 December 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I went to this place not expecting too much but in the end became fascinated with the great age of some of the bottles and their evolution in design over time. There were many memories of bottles now long gone from the marketplace as well as host of curious objects. The tall, bearded guide there who was an obvious bottle enthusiast infected us with some of his enthusiasm as he pointed us around the exhibition. If you are Clunes - do not skip this - the building alone is a cracker.Written 24 December 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Just returned from five nights stay at Tinakori. As with our previous stay Janet and Ian were incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home.
Our eleven year old son did not want to leave he enjoyed it so much, especially feeding the baby wallabies.
Definitely worth a visit for anyone who loves wildlife and creating wonderful memories which will last a lifetime.Written 11 August 2019
- The sign said 1.5 to 2 hours depending on the path and destination, but we did the hike from the bottom to the top in just a little over half an hour. We had taken the wrong path and had just simply went straight up from the dam.
On a beautiful clear day, the views are worth the hike. A word of warning, Mountain Creek Rd is unsealed and corrugated. once at the mouth to the reserve, the drive in to the dam consists of a track that is just wide enough to fit one car only. There are few opportunities to pull aside to allow oncoming vehicles to pass. The path is easily tackled in a SUV, but if you are in a regular sedan/coupe/wagon, you’ll need to be a little careful and just drive slowly as you navigate your way over potholes and ruts.Written 29 December 2020
- Queens park was alive with music, food and stalls on Market Day. There was something there for everyone. Looking forward to next year.Written 22 February 2018
- Turn into Suburban St. on the way to the scenic drive above Clunes. Further on is the Port Phillip Mine Site (1851) with information board. The Port Phillip Company was one of the top five productive gold mines in Victoria, producing 16,000 kilograms of gold. Operation ceased in 1891. There is not much left other than a mullock heap or two and a poppet head (reconstructed). Further along is the James Esmond obelisk. He was the first to discover payable gold in Vic and announce it. Others had discovered it before but kept it quiet for obvious reasons. Nice views across Clunes on the drive.Written 26 December 2022
- This area could get very boggy when wet, but when dry, as now, it was a great place to be alone with the grey box and red gum and the kangaroo mobs. There's plenty of wildlife if you wait and look from bees to birds to lizards and snakes. It doesn't seem to be much used which adds to its attraction to me.Written 19 April 2019
- Given the significance of the impact of the gold rush on Victoria, we expected a major monument to mark the site where gold was first found in Victoria. When we arrived, it was somewhat of a disappointment.Written 28 October 2018
- Went fording but they’ve closed the road, a shame as I’d checked this out in advance.
May we’ll be a good reason, but it would be great if they could update the page.Written 10 January 2021
- This is one of the oldest churches in Clunes and is of an impressive design. It is bluestone, with a tall turret and a Gothic window. It also has an organ of some significance.Written 28 January 2020
- St Paul's is an impressive bluestone building, dating back to the early 1870s. However, the site has two other points of interest. It has a war memorial and an organ, which each rate mentions in the significant items of the town. The church is high on a hill overlooking the town.Written 28 January 2020
- The monument commemorates those from the district who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.
The memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in World War One. The names of those who died in service or were killed in action World War Two were added at a later date, as was a plaque commemorating later conflicts.
It is erected in a commanding position at the intersection of Fraser and Service streets, and is 17 feet high, consisting of bluestone foundation and granite centre, with a marble figure of a soldier standing on top. Erected in honor of all who enlisted from Clunes and district for the Great War, 1914- I8. Also in memory of the fallen. Pass not this stone in sorrow, but with pride, and may you live as nobly as they died.” On the sides are the names of the fallen, numbering 31.Written 28 July 2020
- Built in the 1870s, it was based on designs from bigger towns and does seem a bit grand for Clunes. It is now de-consecrared and has a memorial tablet that mentions Bishop Mulkearns.Written 28 January 2020
- Here there is a pioneer monument, a shelter, a skate park, a public art installation, some seating and picnic tables, and drinking water. It has a bit of everything.Written 28 January 2020
