EDENHOPE

Welcome to Edenhope

Built on the banks of Lake Wallace, Edenhope is a thriving district with a population of around 1000. You will be fascinated with Edenhope and the surrounding areas which are dotted with chains of wetlands, lakes and majestic Red Gums.

EXPLORE

Lake Wallace has been known for great fishing from bank or boat and is stocked with Redfin and Trout. (*Seasonal water permitting.)

Be sure to visit the Back Swamp, diagonally opposite the Old Court House, habitat of abundant bird life which can be viewed from the bird hide and bird walk 5km relaxing walk. Many varieties of birds and parrots including the extremely rare Red-tailed Black Cockatoo can be seen around Edenhope and the district. Why not take a walk around Lake Wallace and view the wetlands and water sports (water permitting) or wander through the Flora Reserve. Edenhope also has antiques for all tastes.

The giant green boulders that are The Bailey's Rocks are another great place to explore.

EXPERIENCE

Did you know that it was on the banks of Lake Wallace in the 1860’s that local Aboriginal station workers were trained in the art of batting, bowling and the fundamentals of cricket? A Cairn, along with an information bay, honouring this elite team who became the first Australian International Touring Cricket Team in 1868, is erected on the Edenhope College oval where you can read their fascinating story.

At the former Court House (circa 1878) you will see the manner in which prisoners were brought before the Judge in the last one hundred years. The Magistrate’s Bench, Prisoners Dock, the Pews and the Public Gallery have been preserved in immaculate condition. With a pretty cottage garden surrounding the building it is now home for the Visitor Information Centre. Old lock-up c1860 now houses historical information and memorabilia.

Edenhope has so much to see and do so come and enjoy the 'Henley on Lake Wallace' Festival or experienced a country race meeting on your next holiday.
