• Wedderburn Self-guided Walking Tour

Only one headstone remains in Wedderburn’s first cemetery, although it’s believed Catherine Rinder, who died at just 18 years of age in 1859, is not alone. Several Chinese prospectors from the old gold days are also thought to rest here.

Catherine’s headstone is no doubt the most-visited early goldfields grave in this historic town. You too can pay your respects and learn the full story on the guided Wedderburn Walking Tour.

The tour is a self-guided walking tour leaving from the Loddon Visitor Information Centre. The two-kilometre walk provides an intimate local perspective on the history and culture of this fascinating town, founded on gold. 

Other points of interest include the Kangaroo Chair, Soldiers Memorial Park and Cuzz’s pyrography studio. The tour is suitable for all abilities and all ages. Booklets can be purchased from the Loddon Visitor Information Centre, 24 Wilson Street, Wedderburn.

Prices for the tour is a gold coin donation.
