Healesville

4.1
Valleys · Distilleries · Parks
Healesville's population of over 6,500 thrives on horticulture, tourism, and viticulture (the study of grapes). Tourism is the oldest of these industries, with luxury vacation homes and hotels dating back to the 1890s. The hotels fill with guests who come to sample the wine and to take advantage of the charm of the historic town resting on the Watts River. This town was one of the first stops for miners who came looking for riches during the gold rush. The railroad that opened in the late 1860s has since been converted into a tourist railway that connects the town to the distant Gippsland.
