The small historic township of Clunes lies half-way between Ballarat and Maryborough. Clunes was the site of Victoria’s first gold strike in 1851 which led to a gold rush which swept through central Victoria, resulting in a massive population boost for the state and great wealth for many. These days, Clunes is an agricultural, pastoral and tourist township, nestled in a scenic valley.
