Murrindindi

(5/5 based on 10+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: wineries
Murrindindi is a locality along the valley of the Murrundindi River in Victoria, in eastern Australia in the Murrindindi local government area. The nearest town is Yea.Location and historyThe name comes from the pastoral run begun by squatter Peter Snodgrass in 1837, which was originally (and probably correctly) spelled Murrundindi. In the Woiwurrung language of central Victoria the name means "living in the mountains". However, the inaccurate translation "mist of the mountains" is sometimes given.Snodgrass’s station covered the area from the present-day town of Yea up the valleys of the east and west branches of the Muddy Creek, now the Yea River. His homestead was near the junction of these two branches, therefore surveyors named the east branch Murrindindi Creek, now the Murrindindi River.There has never been a Murrindindi town. The gold rush town of Higinbotham (began 1868, lasted for a few years, now completely vanished) with a maximum of 200 residents was the nearest to a town that the valley has seen. Modern maps place the name Murrindindi at the site where the War Memorial Hall once stood (now a public reserve) or a little further to the south on Cummins Lane where the local volunteer fire station is situated. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries these would have been called Lower Murrindindi, and Upper Murrindindi was the locality now called Woodbourne and adjacent areas up the Ault Beag Creek. Ault Beag (Gaelic for "little creek") was named by an early Scots settler, Duncan McLeish.
