Mt Rouse in Penshurst - FURTHER INFORMATION

Mt Rouse in Penshurst - Penshurst visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Mt Rouse in Penshurst' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Victoria.

Penshurst is a small town of about 500 people 275 km west of Melbourne, 31 km south-east of Hamilton, 50 km south-east of the Grampians. Penshurst is the centre of a large dairying, agricultural and pastoral district on a lava plain at the foot of extinct volcano Mt Rouse.

Before European settlement the Nareeb Nareeb and Kolor Aborigines occupied the area. Conflicts with white settlers and introduced diseases caused a rapid decline of the aboriginal population which could not be stopped by a reserve created around Mt Rouse in the 1840s.

Penshurst was laid out with very wide main streets to enable bullock trains to turn. Despite its declining population, Penshurst remains a service town to farms and a tourist destination.
