Wedderburn is a rural town in Victoria, Australia on the Calder Highway, 214 kilometres (133 mi) north of victoria's capital city, Melbourne. At the 2011 census, Wedderburn had a population of 680. It is mainly a farming community but its early residents were gold miners and prospectors. One of the main attractions for tourists is hard hill reserve where, with a bit of imagination, one can feel a sense of what it was like in the 'old days' living in tents on the goldfields. Apart from gold, a number of eucalyptus stills used to operate in the district and a replica still has been situated on the site and is fired up, by arrangement, for tourist buses. On-site is one of the original batteries for crushing the ore and removing the gold. A puddler is also on-site and a demonstration of it working can be seen during the annual detector jamboree festival held on the labour day long weekend each year. Wedderburn is a popular spot for hopefuls with gold detectors who are still finding the occasional nice nugget.
