One hour north of Melbourne, and just off the Hume Highway, Kilmore is one of (if not the) oldest inland towns in Victoria with the post office dating back to 1843.
The town has plenty of beautiful old buildings, most of which are made from limestone. Hudson Park lies adjacent to the main street, and includes a playground, skatepark, walking tracks and a war memorial.
If it’s history you’re after, then the Old Kilmore Gaol is packed with it. The gaol was maximum security and operated between 1859 and 1891 before being turned into a butter factory. The past hasn’t escaped the gaol though - apparently it’s haunted, and there’s several ghost tours which run there.
That’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but you can’t go wrong with a great view. Drive into the Monument Hill Reserve, climb up the Hume and Hovell Memorial Tower and enjoy some great views of Kilmore.
Take a step back in time and uncover a mystery or two in the historic town of Kilmore.
