Natimuk

Natimuk is a town in Western Victoria, Australia. It is located about 300 km northwest of Melbourne. A further 10 km west of Natimuk is one of Australia's best climbing areas, Mount Arapiles. At the 2006 census, Natimuk had a population of 449.HistoryThe Post Office opened as Natimuk Creek on 1 July 1874 and was renamed Natimuk in 1884.A railway line, built in a number of sections, once connected Horsham and Hamilton, running via Cavendish, Balmoral and East Natimuk.In 2004 Natimuk hosted 10000 people for Triple J's One Night Stand.DescriptionNatimuk has traditionally survived as a rural service centre for the surrounding grain and sheep farming community. More recently it has diversified into tourism and staved off the decline common in other Wimmera towns. People from all over the planet flock to Natimuk because of the rock climbing at Mount Arapiles and the nearby Grampians.Around 60 rock climbers (locally known as goats) have made Natimuk their home due to the climbing and lifestyle. Every two years Natimuk hosts its arts festival, the Nati Frinj Natimuk's arts friendly focus has attracted and supported artists from nearby regions or urban areas to settle in the town.
