Country Township – Trentham
Trentham, located in the Great Dividing Range, is one of those small towns that captures the perfect balance of old-fashioned goodness with modern country living.
It’s steeped in history, only an hour from Melbourne and right at the heart of a vibrant and expanding rural community.
From the stately elegance of the main street to the charming cottages and natural wonders in the surrounding area, this is a place that breathes tranquility, organic goodness and that unhurried pace that so many of us crave.
This gorgeous little town is home to a happy mix of farming families, tree-changers and retirees. Their timeless country spirit shows itself in regular markets celebrating the local produce, and simply bringing folks together to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
It might be small, but this town is simply bursting at the seams with gourmet delights. The local bakery, hotel, and restaurant offer excellent meal choices, with a strong emphasis on local seasonal produce. The surrounding area offers vineyards, orchards and olive groves where tastings are simply sensational.
Trentham is sometimes referred to as the gateway to the Wombat State Reserve Forest. This 75,000-hectare area of stunning bushland offers excellent camping, walking, hiking and riding adventures – there’s a trail for everyone, be it on foot, bike or horseback!
Wombat Forest also boasts Victoria’s highest single drop waterfall, Trentham Falls, which plunges a stunning 32m drop into the Coliban River. A short walk from the carpark and picnic area, this is one of nature’s gems that you can’t help loving.
Country towns and a country lifestyle go hand in hand with beautiful country homes. Hensley Park Homes has been honoured to build 7 classic homes in Trentham, which mirror what we’re all about – helping folks retreat into the country.
