Redesdale is a town in central Victoria, 100 km north west of Melbourne. It is located partly in the City of Greater Bendigo and the district is still a strong agricultural area, predominantly wool and new industries like wineries, olives and walnuts.
The town was named after Captain Robert William Rede, goldfields commissioner at the time of the Eureka Stockade rebellion in 1854.
Redesdale is near the Campaspe River and is situated close to Heathcote, Macedon and Bendigo region vineyards, mysterious Hanging Rock, historic Castlemaine, Bendigo Art Galleries and Goldfields. Kyneton’s notable restaurants and great shopping are a mere 15 minutes away and the incredible Turpins Falls in Langley and Lake Eppalock are within a short drive from Farmer Smith Estate. It’s a thriving tourist zone for water sports enthusiasts, country getaways and wine lovers.
Locally there’s a great hotel which serves country style pub food, a general store and a local cafe.
A weekend away is never enough to explore this beautiful part of country Victoria!
