Clunes Arts

As you wander through the old world qualities of the streets of Clunes and the surrounding hills and relics of the mining days, don’t be surprised if you feel as though you are on the set of a movie.

For there is a very good chance that the setting you find yourself in has graced the silver screen.

Movie and film buffs are attracted to Clunes, allowing them to follow in the footsteps of film stars to the location for many films, television series and commercials including Ned Kelly and Mad Max.

Strolling through this charming village, with cafés, galleries, wineries and shops offering antiques and collectibles, is inspiring enough.  And who knows who you might bump into as the town is home to many fine artists, authors, historians and photographers.

If you are into reading or fancy yourself as a novelist, don't miss Booktown held in early May each year.

Ballarat - Maryborough Heritage Trail
Ballarat - Maryborough Heritage Trail The Ballarat-Maryborough Heritage Trail (“the trail”) is a cycle touring route connecting the major townships of Maryborough and Ballarat via smaller settlements and other points of interest along the route. The route is designed for a country cycle on quiet, sealed and unsealed roads that take in some of the most attractive towns in the Goldfields region: Talbot, Clunes and Creswick. The route progresses through scenic, relatively flat (gentle gradient) country with views of rolling hills and farmland on existing public roads, or off-road paths.
