CA 6 Sec Mt. Camel - Graytown Road Redcastle VIC

Ghost town
This 1.8 acre rural Farming Zone bush block was once part of the small township of Redcastle located in central Victoria 45 km east of Bendigo and 18 km north of Heathcote. One upon a time it was set between Strange and Main Streets, now its gone back to nature and Holts Flat Track is on the eastern boundary. Lots 19 & 20 are adjacent to this and are being sold too - see online too.

The land is ideal for weekend pursuits, bush walking, mountain biking, gold prospecting or just owning a part of the Australian bush & Goldrush heritage.

Building anything here will require a planning permit from the council.

Redcastle was an isolated goldfield between the McIvor (Heathcote) diggings and the Waranga (Rushworth) diggings further north. It was discovered in 1859, and named the Balmoral Diggings. Bailliere's Victorian gazetteer (1865) recorded Redcastle as having police and court facilities, a post office, two hotels and three quartz-crushing mills: most gold was found in quartz reefs. Redcastle can be identified by numerous abandoned gold mines with State forest around three sides.
