  • Natural Attractions

Nestled on the banks of Reedy Creek, downstream from the historic town of Beechworth and at the end of the Woolshed Valley, El Dorado is a natural amphitheatre housing an abundance of flora and fauna which opens to the vast flat farmlands that were once swamps and wetlands.

Take a journey of gold history or an adventure with the homes of Joe Byrne and Aaron Sherritt, Ned Kelly stories and ghost towns of the mining era. The Woolshed Valley is believed to be one of Victoria’s oldest because of its geological features. El Dorado township fringes Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park contains the highest number of mammal, bird and reptile species recorded at any Box-Ironbark site.

El Dorado is the one place in the whole of Australia where you will have a virtual guarantee to find gemstones and crystals along the whole expanse of Reedy Creek, the richest of all Australian Creeks.
