Tiny Beulah in the southern Mallee region shot to fame in 2020 as the location for the film The Dry, starring Australia's own Eric Bana and written by home-grown author Jane Harper.
The quiet agricultural town - on the lands of the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagalk Nations - lies along the Henty Highway, between Brim and Hopetoun, on the banks of the Yarriambiack Creek. Stop in for a counter meal and refreshment at the historic 19th-century Beulah Victoria Hotel, and strike up a conversation with the locals at the bar. A number of the town's residents came on board the film as extras and are sure to have some stories to tell.
Stretch your legs on the walking tracks along the peaceful creek, and get out the Esky and blanket for a picnic. Bollards along the creek give a colourful nod to the town's love of sport, and a number of public murals around the sleepy township illustrate scenes from Beulah's early settler history.
Search out some vintage country gems at the op shop while you're here.
Just 16km south of Beulah, the famous Brim silos are a memorable stop along the Silo Art Trail.
