The township of Trafalgar was named after the famous battle in which the British, under Nelson, defeated the French and Spanish fleets. Located 125 kms south east of Melbourne this rural community is situated in a rich and picturesque agricultural district.

The local attractions demanding a camera stop include the Trafalgar South Lookout, the Narracan Falls and Henderson’s Gully.


Trafalgar is the home of the Holden Museum. It tells the complete story of the Holden brand. The museum features all things Holden from saddles to motor cars, aero engines to pedal cars. Along with a theatrette and interactive displays, it truly is a must do for everyone.

If testing your physical and mental stamina appeals then a visit to the Summit Adventure Park is not to be missed. This multi-award winning obstacle course venue located on 50 acres offers accommodation, events and custom programs designed to push you to your limits.

Perhaps a round of golf? Trafalgar Golf Club, regarded as one of the best country courses in Victoria provides a true test of golf in a stunning natural environment.

The town also serves the gateway to the beautiful, picturesque drive through agricultural landscapes to the quaint township of Thorpdale where the soils are rich and red creating a colorful patchwork like impression. Picnic at the Narracan Falls with award winning pies and artisan breads purchased from the local bakery.

If it’s fishing, boating or kayaking that takes your fancy then you can’t go past Blue Rock Lake. Located in the rural farming township of Willow Grove this beautiful lake is one of Victoria’s premier fisheries for Australian Bass. It’s also a popular swimming and picnic destination.
