Two branches of the Ovens River meet in Harrietville, the west and the east.  This gives lots of choice when it comes to fishing or swimming locations.  There are also lovely walks along each of the river branches, perfect to explore.


Tronoh Dredge

The Tronoh Dredge holes was once the location of the biggest bucket dredge in the southern hemisphere.  It operated from 1942 to 1954.  At the time it was the highest producing dredge in Victoria.

These days its a great location for a swim or kayak.  Enjoy one of the many walking trails that meander around the dredge holes.
