1 of 16 International Booktowns

An annual Booktown Festival is held in May amid the historic streetscape of Clunes. Enjoy hearing readings and attending workshops in and around the towns heritage building by world renowned authors. The workshops will help you start your collection and the art of reviewing. Over 60 booksellers will attend with the largest gathering of collectible, second-hand, and rare books in the one place in Victoria.

Wesley College campus (Wesley@Clunes)

In recent years Clunes has undergone a noticeable transformation and rejuvenation following the decision by Wesley College, Australia's largest co-educational private school, to establish a campus for Year 9 students in the town. Opened in 2000, about 80 students take up residency in the Wesley Clunes Residential Learning Village in the centre of town and become part of the local community for an eight-week period each term.

Film

Many of the external scenes and some internal scenes in the 2003 film Ned Kelly, starring Heath Ledger, were shot in Clunes. The Old State Bank in Fraser Street was used for the internal scenes featuring the 'Euroa' bank robbery.

Clunes also appears in the films Mad Max starring Mel Gibson and the remake of the 1950s classic On the Beach. It also appears in the ABC television series' Queen Kat, Carmel & St Jude, Something in the Air and Halifax f.p..

Clunes was once closed off to the public for the TV show The Mole in 2001. The mission in that episode was to direct one of the contestants to pick up another contestant in a blacked-out car.

The most recent film shot in Clunes is Julius Avery's 13-minute movie Jerrycan. Jerrycan won the 2008 Jury Prize at the 61st Cannes Film Festival in France for short films, with its portrayal of restless teenagers in rural Victoria

Transport

Clunes railway station is located on the Maryborough railway line, Victoria. Services operate daily with one train in each direction.

When the State Government announced the Victorian Transport Plan, along with V/Line services being extended to Maryborough, Clunes was not part of the plan (with the only stations being Creswick and Maryborough). However as a result of protest by the town, the Government announced on 17 June 2010 that Clunes would be reopened and included on the line.

Clunes - The Diamond of Victoria!

An historic gold mining town located in the heart of Victoria's Central Goldfields region, just north of Ballarat and about an hour and 20 minutes drive west of Melbourne CBD. Blessed with history, vintage, environment and nature, Clunes is an idyllic destination for the weekend getaway, an historical adventure, or just a relax and unwind.

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

Clunes is host to the annual Booktown event, which brings together thousands of booksellers, writers and speakers from all over the nation and overseas. Booktown is staged right across the town, inside heritage bluestone buildings, on the quartz streets, under charming old awnings, in the shade of majestic european trees planted by the first settlers and easily increases the town population by a factor of 20 over the weekend.

A short drive west of Clunes the intrepid explorer will discover magical Talbot, our nearest neighbour. On the third Sunday of each month, Talbot hosts the award winning farmers' market boasting hundreds of true blue farmers' market stalls. Organic produce, gourmet cheeses, ducks, geese, chickens, pigs, olive oils, wines, straw bales (good for the garden), arts & crafts, breads, coffee, delicious hot foods, home baked cakes, tools & hardware and everything country. For added effect bring your wellingtons and tweed coat, you'll fit right in.

There's so much going on in the Clunes area we can't say it all here. Suffice to say Clunes is the place to stay and enjoy the vibrant, creative community that is .
