This self-guided walk will see you discover some of lively history preserved in various heritage buildings dotted throughout the CBD.

Following Major Mitchell’s favourable report of the area, overlanders were quickly on the move and European settlement began in Ovens Crossing in 1838.

By 1848 the township had been officially named Wangaratta, the Bpangerang word for Long Necked Cormorant.

From the boom of the gold rush, construction of the rail link from Melbourne to Sydney, Wangaratta has continued to grow. This heritage can be viewed through the various styles of architecture in and around the CBD.
