Take a well deserved vacation at Inglewood Motel and Caravan Park!

Located two hours from Melbourne and 35 minutes from Bendigo, Inglewood Motel and Caravan Park is a 10 acre bush park privately owned and managed by Jerry and Pauline Wellman in the gorgeous gold-rush town of Inglewood, Victoria. The park is within walking distance to cafes, shops and hotel entertainment, and is surrounded by State Forests.

Inglewood is a popular destination for tourists and forms part of the renowned Golden Triangle - a region of the Victorian Goldfields which is world famous for the size, purity, and quantity of gold nuggets found in the area. The Golden Triangle has consistently yielded significant gold discoveries to this day. The Welcome Stranger nugget, the largest alluvial gold nugget discovered in the world so far, was unearthed within the Golden Triangle in 1869.

The town of Inglewood and surrounding area has a lot to offer tourists and visitors enjoying their stay at Inglewood Motel and Caravan Park:
  • Explore nearby caves with spectacular views
  • Browse the quaint yesteryear shops along main street
  • Visit the many boutique wineries in the region
  • Appreciate the beautiful historic buildings and churches

  • Fish in the Loddon River
  • Play a game of bowls or golf
  • Gold prospecting in the Golden Triangle

Attractions nearby in the Inglewood area

Notable attractions within an hour's drive

  • Central Deborah Gold Mine: Excellent mine tours deep underground
  • Carman's Tunnel: Underground tour of an original gold mine at a remarkably low price.
  • Vaughan Springs: Beautiful mineral springs and barbecue area.
  • Dunolly Museum: Fascinating collection of gold rush relics, photographs, firearms, mining equipment, gold nugget replicas and much more.
  • Forest Creek Historic Gold Diggings: 400 metre walking track travels in a circuit around a historic gold digging site past many points of interest and detailed information signs. An ancient river bed, mine shafts, the engine shed, water pipes and machinery are among the many fascinating features of this short walk.
  • Pennyweight Flat Childrens Cemetery: A heartbreaking result of the awful living conditions in the diggings during the gold rush of the 1850s. Around 200 shallow childrens' graves, most marked only by small stone rings and piles, are scattered amongst the trees.
