It is said that during the gold rush in Maldon, Castlemaine and the surround goldfields towns and villages there was a pub on every corner. One thing is for sure, the miners knew how to work hard and play hard.
While the days of rowdy miners drowning their sorrows or drinking their fortunes might be long gone, still today there are plenty of historic watering holes still plying their trade. If these walls could talk oh the stories they could tell!
So if historic gold era pubs and hotels are your idea of a paradise then you’ll be in heaven visiting the Castlemaine region. Equally, if quality craft beers and locally produced Harcout ciders suit your tastebud, then look no further, you’ll find them here in spades. Live music, check! So what are you waiting for?
