General Information About Hamilton

The city of Hamilton lies at the centre of two rich pastoral regions, to the south is the cattle grazing country of the South West and to the north are the wool and wheat producing plains of the Wimmera / Mallee region. Although Australia no longer rides on the sheep’s back there is still a lot of serious money in the region and a quick drive around Hamilton will show some tell tale signs of its prosperity. The attractive tree lined streets are all well cared for and there is enough up market shopping to let you know everything is in the pink, but you couldn’t accuse Hamilton of being ostentatious , as old money doesn’t need to show off. Some of the signs are less obvious, such as two substantial private colleges for the sons and daughters the local landowners, an opulent art gallery with expensive art work courtesy of very generous benefactors and a large hospital with rooms and medical suites all bearing neat brass plaques proclaiming the generosity of local citizens..

The Big Wool Bales

The Big Wool Bales was small tourist attraction with cafe and museum dedicated to the local wool industry - it closed in 2013.
