Explore Chiltern


Chiltern is a perfectly preserved gold-rush era town, built in the late 1850's when diggers tried their luck on the goldfields and fortunes were made and lost.

Their legacy is a streetscape of wide verandahs and historic buildings that tell the stories of European settlers and gold miners. Modern-day Chiltern is a peaceful haven nestled in the hills of the Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park.

Visitors to Chiltern will experience a shared affection for the past, with all the benefits of good old-fashioned hospitality and warmth.
