Our names are Peter & Kaye and we enjoy the history of Eldorado and the Woolshed Valley,
I like metal detecting looking for artefacts and old coins from the six ghost towns and eighty
hotel sites in the Woolshed Valley and Eldorado.
Kaye keeps herself busy with her craft and catering for groups with her famous scones and
Devonshire Tea and her garden which she loves to share with others.
Whilst staying in our Cottage in Eldorado please ask to view the artefacts and old coins found from Ned Kelly sites and Joe Byrne's hut site, whilst enjoying a Devonshire Tea at
"Kaye's Place". Eldorado Cottage is in THE VALLEY OF DISCOVERY.
Nestled in the foothills of the Ovens Plains, the historic Village of Eldorado is an ideal location to escape the frustrations of city life.
Situated only 19km from Wangaratta, Eldorado is a short trip from the many attractions of
Victoria's fabulous North East and makes an ideal stopover whilst touring the area.
The Village boasts many thriving local businesses and a Tavern (that boasts of being the smallest pub in Victoria) " but big on atmosphere food and fun" we also have the local shop which is also the Post Office to further cater for your relaxation.
The Reedy Creek that flows through the Woolshed Valley to Eldorado, was the source of mining that built Eldorado Village supporting a century of shaft, sluice and dredge mining.
Many historic relics are still preserved, including the immense gold dredge which was, during it's time of operation, the largest of it's kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Woolshed Valley itself contains some of the most picturesque country in Victoria, and anglers can enjoy seeking the wild trout which inhabit the upper reaches of Reedy Creek, or gold panning and looking for gem stones, or bird watching, or just having a picnic.
Today, Eldorado remains an extremely interesting, beautiful and tranquil spot, a must to visit.
From the soaring peaks of Victoria's highest mountains, to the fertile valleys and pristine rivers and lake s below. And best of all, once your here in Eldorado everything is just a relaxed drive, stroll or cycle away.
