Chiltern has a tranquil atmosphere and life proceeds at a leisurely pace. The town’s heritage is yours to explore, with many buildings retaining their historic integrity. Some 21 buildings are registered or owned by the National Trust. Chiltern’s spectacular historic streetscape is a treat in time travel, to the heady days of gold fever and gold
dust. Once on the main Melbourne/Sydney highway, Chiltern’s historic buildings have been restored and maintained to preserve the architecture of the late 1850s. Visiting Chiltern is like a movie set of a by-gone era and it has featured on the big screen in several motion pictures.
