Cornish Hill Reserve Daylesford Vic 3460 44 km

Friends of Cornish Hill are a Landcare group. Our connection with RHSV goes back to the day when Cornish Hill Reserve was saved from sale by members of the local community who realised the value of the Reserve as being historically and environmentally significant.

The Friends have been beavering away restoring the Smiths creek corridor to bring it back to what it looked like before mining ravaged the landscape.

2 Canrobert Street, Newstead VIC 3462, Australia 63.96 km

In 1863 the Newstead Court of Petty Sessions was built to the design of colonial architect John James Clark.

In February 1986 a group of interested people met and formed the Newstead & District Historical Society Inc.

In 1987 the Society applied through the then Shire of Newstead to the Department formerly named Conservation, Forests & Lands for the use of the old courthouse as a venue. The application was successful and since then members have carried out a great deal of work both in restoring and maintaining the building as well as collecting and conserving the history of the area. Our building is unique in that no alterations or additions have been done to it.
