Heathcote - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located at the foot of Mount Ida and the junction of two major highways, Heathcote is a small rural township nestled amidst box ironbark forests. With its peaceful bush setting, history dating back to the 1850s, and friendly locals, Heathcote is a great place to make your base, to enjoy its local attractions and from which to visit the surrounding region.

Heathcote is just 109 km north of Melbourne, and 47 km south-east of Bendigo. Many of the old shopfronts and buildings are clustered around High Street (the Northern Highway). This main street is lined by trees planted in the 19th century on the advice of Baron von Mueller, who had made a significant contribution to the Melbourne Royal Botanic Garden.

Check out our listing of Heathcote accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
