Description

Bacchus Marsh is located mid-way between Melbourne and Ballarat, in a rich and fertile valley that consists of orchards, market gardens and pastoral fields. The township itself has a long history, dating back to the days when gold was first discovered in nearby Ballarat during the 1850s.replacenewlinereplacenewlineWhen entering Bacchus Marsh from Melbourne, the main road into town is The Avenue of Honour, which is lined by hundreds of elm, oaks and plane trees, planted to honour those who served during World War One. This road leads directly into the commercial centre of town which offers a mix of retail outlets in both historic and modern buildings. Attractions within town include the historic Court House, the Tudor-style Border Inn, the Blacksmith's Cottage, and a number of churches dating back to the 1800s. The Chicory Kiln, in Taverner Street, has been preserved since its construction in 1885 when chicory roots were roasted before being ground and added to coffee.
