BARNAWARTHA

Barnawartha is a small community close to the Hume Freeway and not to far from Wodonga. This a town that is signposted on various highways, but not a place you pass through.

The  town located on the on the banks of Indigo Creek which runs into the Murray River to the north.

Gustav and William Baumgarten were large land owners in Barnawartha prior to the township being settled. After serving prison time for supplying horses to the infamous Ned Kelly, William developed a large winery called Bogong, on the Murray River.

 The town contains a few historic buildings, such as the Post Office, Cheesely's Bootmakers shop (now used to store hay) and a recently burnt and rebuilt pub.

There are two churches in Barnawartha.

The War Memorial is on the Howlong Road.

The hotel is in the main street and is a classic.

A nice spot and there is no need to take the diversion, but the pub is of interest take a look.
