Chewton was once the thriving heart of the Forest Creek gold diggings, and is now both charming and historically significant. This town is surrounded by the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park which can be experienced on foot or by mountain bike via the Goldfields Track.

Self-guided tours of the Park are also available, drop into the Castlemaine Visitor Information Centre for more details.

View historic buildings, enjoy a picnic amidst the native garden at Ellery Park, browse through antiques and collectables or enjoy a bite to eat at the historic Red Hill Hotel.
