The Mill Castlemaine is a creative hub for foodies, art admirers and seekers of the collectable and curious.

Located opposite the Botanical Gardens, the site which started as the Castlemaine Woollen Mill in 1875, has become a go-to zone for tourists and locals alike.

Experience a slice of Viennese opulence at Das Kaffeehaus, where lovingly-prepared sausages, goulash, schnitzels and European cakes are partnered with rich brews whipped up using beans from the on-site roastery.

Traditional time honoured techniques and carefully sourced ingredients come together to create high quality artisan smallgoods at Oakwood Smallgoods Co. Enjoy a fresh and frosty treat at the Icecream Social scoopery, where flavours range from the traditional to the avant-garde.

Browse through the vintage precinct— home of Castlemaine Vintage Bazaar and Platform No. 5—where a multitude of stallholders sell vintage, upcycled, handmade and second-hand goods.

Meander around the artisan precinct and observe artists at work in quirky art spaces.

If all of the milling around leaves you parched, Shedshaker Brewing's tap room offers craft beers and cider on tap, while Boomtown Winemakers Cooperative showcases the local grape varieties that Central Victoria is renowned for.

Visit this haven of wonderfulness and experience Castlemaine creativity at its best.
