Overview

Dargo

Discover one of Victoria's most remote communities, nestled in the foothills of the legendary Dargo High Plains. The town of Dargo, with a population of approximately 150, is an entry point for the Alpine National Park, Avon Wilderness Park and Mitchell River National Park.

Outdoor adventure

Experience first-rate rafting, fishing and canoeing in the surrounding region. The area is also an excellent destination for horse riding, bush walking and hiking, and the perfect base for a day trip taking in the spectacular scenery of the High Plains and the Grant Historic area. 

Mix things up with a visit to Wonnangatta Station by 4WD, once Victoria's most remote cattle station. 

Agriculture

Dargo is known for its groves of century-old walnut trees that line the valley floor. Many high country cattlemen have homes in the stockbreeding and agricultural district.

History

Although a minor gold rush was experienced in the mid 1800s, the town was primarily a resting place and later a supply town for miners on their way to the Grant, Talbotville and Crooked River goldfields nearby. 

For a dose of living history, grab a pint at the Dargo Hotel, established all the way back in 1898.
