Introducing Maldon

Like a pop-up folk museum, the whole of tiny Maldon is a well-preserved relic of the gold-rush era, with many fine buildings constructed from local stone. The population is significantly lower than the 20,000 who used to work the local goldfields, but this is still a living, working town – packed with tourists on weekends but reverting to its sleepy self during the week.

The town centre consists of High St and Main St, lined with antique stores, cafes, old toy shops, lolly shops, bookshops and the three local pubs – the Maldon, Grand and Kangaroo hotels.
