Warrandyte was founded as a Victorian town, located in the once gold-rich rolling hills east of Melbourne . Gold was first discovered in the town in 1851 and together, with towns like Bendigo and Ballarat, led the way in gold discoveries during the Victorian gold rush. Today Warrandyte retains much of its past in its surviving buildings of the Colonial period
It has been argued that 'Warrandyte' comes from a Wurundjeri Aboriginal word 'warin', meaning 'wombat', although other sources claim it meant 'to throw at a target' from 'warren' meaning 'to throw' and 'dyte' meaning the object being aimed at.
Warrandyte is renowned for its gold mining origins and later for its famous painters and potters.
Located on the southern banks of the Yarra River. it’s just so beautiful and inspiring here.
