Elmore is a great place to visit year-round for its country hospitality, history and heritage. See the Campaspe Run Rural Discovery Centre in the heart of town. It pays homage to the history of the Sunshine Harvester, developed in Elmore by Hugh Victor McKay.
Elmore is also famous for its annual field days, but the annual event is not just for farmers. For three days in October the Elmore Field Days sees this tiny town swell to accommodate tens of thousands of town and country folk looking for the latest machinery and technology in agricultural practices. Come and experience the working culture of Australian farming, plus good food, bargain shopping and alternative fashion. The Elmore Agart competition challenges designers to create wearable art out of agricultural materials. It’s a must-see.
The town sits alongside the Campaspe River. Campers can settle in beside the water at nearby Aysons Reserve, a lovely free camp site that provides the ideal base for swimming, fishing, kayaking and simply enjoying life by your own camp fire. Find the site along Burnewang Road, just past the privately-owned heritage-listed Burnewang Mansion.
