Mitchellstown: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Black Caviar Statue


On 24 October 2013, history was created when Nagambie became home to the life size bronze statue of the world famous mare Black Caviar.

The champion mare is the fastest horse in the world, undefeated in all her 23 races.

Black Caviar was born on 18 August 2006 at Gilgai Farm in Nagambie, Victoria. She grew up on the Goulburn River property and then went to Swettenham Stud in December 2007 for a ten-week yearling preparation where she was then sold on behalf of Rick Jamieson to the current owners to be trained by Peter Moody.

Historic Hughes Creek Bridge


Hughes Creek was named after the first settler in Avenel, for many years it was a popular overnight stop for drovers. The bridge was built in 1859 by contractor Hugh Dalrymple for the Board of Lands and Works in Victoria.

The Historic Hughes Creek Bridge is perhaps better known for its association to Ned Kelly. At the age of 11, Ned rescued Richard Shelton who had fallen into the creek after trying to cross over on a tree bridge. The incident occurred only 150 metres downstream from the Bridge.

A green silk cummerbund was awarded to Ned for his bravery by Richard's parents. Ned was wearing the cummerbund when he was captured at the Siege of Glenrowan.
