Originally constructed in 1849, Overnewton Castle was the masterpiece of Scotsman William Taylor. He commissioned an illustrious single-story homestead on 13,000 acres of lush grazing land situated to the west side of Keilor township. Featuring six spacious rooms and broad verandas that overlooked a picturesque village below; it served as both refuge and lookout during 1850’s bustling gold rush.
With two schools erected nearby along with a bridge connecting locals more easily than before – plus a brand new hotel – travellers were able to explore this burgeoning town without disruption or distraction until they reached their Victorian Goldfields destination beyond its borders.

We had our wedding ceremony here last week and it was perfect! We had never heard of this place until we started our wedding planning but we are so happy we found it. Such a beautiful place and the staff are wonderful, they helped to make sure everything ran so smoothly. Stunning grounds for photos too.
