A rare manuscript shop, bespoke and designer clothing at every turn, ceramics, contemporary and second-hand book stores, garden art, farmers and artists markets, antiques and curiosity stores;  you'll find it all when you visit Castlemaine and the surrounding towns.

A destination in itself, The Mill Castlemaine contains its own arts, vintage and food precincts for the curious, creators and collectors amongst us. Here you can buy everything from that one off retro fur coat, to high quality artisan smallgoods or a vibrant original piece of art. 

Expect to spend hours browsing through stores set amidst the historic gold-era streetscape of Maldon. Locate that special piece of old lace, artisan jewellery or browse the endless number of antiques and collectables.  

Be sure to check out the many local markets in the area too. Just about every weekend there will be a farmers market or artisan market to wander around. Best to check out the What's On section for more details. 

Please note, dogs are restricted from some of our parks & ovals which hosts some of our markets. This includes Western Reserve, Castlemaine and Camp Reserve, Castlemaine. Please visit the Mount Alexander Shire Council website for more information before you travel.
