COVID-19 and Maldon.

Sometimes there are restrictions – and other times there aren’t, so please always check with organisers and businesses to confirm which attractions are open and which events are on. 

Mask wearing and social distancing, along with hand sanitising and data recording are a part of everyday life, please respect the rules and play nice.

Stay safe, be kind to yourself and others, and welcome back to the Maldon you love.


Maldon (population ~1,500) is located 140km northwest of Melbourne in the heart of the Victorian Goldfields. The town is nestled on the slopes of Mt. Tarrengower in an agricultural, pastoral and mining district. Mt Tarrengower, a prominent geological feature, is close to the geographical centre of Victoria.

Maldon has retained an authentic pioneer-like appearance with history of the gold-mining era being preserved. Maldon was declared Australia’s First Notable Town in 1966 by the National Trust of Australia.  The township and surrounding forests abound with remnants of the gold mining past, beautiful seasonal wildflowers and and scenic walking trails.

Come for the day, celebrate at one of Maldon’s many well-known events, ride the steam train or stay awhile in a turn of the century miner’s cottage or perhaps one of the grander homes. Maldon offers many accommodation options as well as boutique shopping, locavore opportunities and gourmet foods and wines.

Maldon in winter is always a delight – and we’re thrilled that Maldon in Winter 2021 is on!
