About 12 km east of Dunolly along the road to Eddington. Built in 1889, this was one of Victoria's first reservoirs. It is a popular spot for picnicking, swimming, boating, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, fishing, water skiing, bushwalking, a playground and camping. A great spot for afternoon tea.
Maldon has been perfectly preserved since its mining days and is Australia's First Notable Town - classified by the National Trust in 1966. Its list of historic buildings is impressive and includes the railway station (built in 1884), the Grand Hotel (1888), the old post office (1870) and a number of churches. Most of the historical buildings of interest are concentrated around the block in the town centre bounded by Main Street, High Street, Camp Street and Church Street.
Panoramic views of the surrounding region are best seen from the peak of Mount Tarrengower where there is a lookout tower. Mount Tarrengower rises to a height of 570 metres a few kilometres west of Maldon, and was the centre of gold diggings in the area during the 1850s.
