We are delighted that Mortlake & District Historical Society will be hosting our first regional seminar for 2024.
We will release the full program and booking details shortly.
In the meantime, why not plan a weekend, or longer, in the Western District?
Mortlake is an historic settlement which lies at the base of Mount Shadwell, an extinct volcano. The town, which has a large number of impressive bluestone buildings, lies in an area of fertile volcanic plains which have produced a rich pastoral and agricultural district. The area is known for its olivine crystal which can be fossicked on Mount Shadwell.
Mortlake is located 216 km west of Melbourne via the Hamilton Highway (2.5-3 hours drive) and 49 km north-east of Warrnambool.
