CA 1, Section 3, Main Street Redcastle VIC

Old Town
This 3.62 acre bush block is a prime spot to get your own place to escape; located in the Farming Zone bush, it was 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 Pratt and Cameron Streets, now its gone back to nature and Holts Flat Track is on the eastern boundary (access it via this track).

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, and is not suitable for residential use.

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.
