Known as Korong until renamed Wedderburn in 1858, the town today is at the centre of a thriving farming community.
One of the main attractions for visitors is Hard Hill Tourist Reserve, where travellers can find a gold stamper battery, old diggings, picnic facilities and pleasant walking tracks. Apart from gold, a number of eucalyptus stills used to operate in the district and a replica has been placed on the site.
Local attractions include the town’s historic buildings, Mt Korong, the Nardoo Creek walking track, Soldiers Memorial Park, “Ted’s Garden” (with its famed Kangaroo Chair), a busy Community Centre, Skinners Flat reservoir and the Lonely Grave, signposted off the highway at the north end of town.
The Loddon Visitor Information Centre offers a Guided Walking Tour on the history of Wedderburn on Tuesday and Wednesday 11am commencing from the Loddon Visitor Information Centre, 24 Wilson Street.
Cost $7.00 per adult, $5.00 concession, $2.50 under 16 or $15.00 a family.
The Coach House Gallery and General Store Museum offer visitors both a fascinating glimpse into the past and a range of vibrant art exhibitions.
There are plenty of opportunities, too, for amateur gold fossickers and prospectors to try their luck in the bush around the town.
