Edenhope is a town that is on a quite remote highway. Edenhope is a spur visit from either Hamilton or Horsham. Therefore, although the town has all of the essential services, this is a quiet place. Lake Wallace in an earlier era was a catalyst for visitors.
The township of Edenhope was established some years later than nearby Apsley, and the lack of ‘old’ or heritage buildings bears testimony to the later growth.
The town sits on the shores of Lake Wallace, which is home to abundant water birds, and is a popular fishing and water sports destination. However due to Australia's decade long drought the lake water level decreased. Lake Wallace is now filling, and the water bird population is slowly increasing.
Now every visitor should take the time to visit Lake Street in the grounds of the Secondary College, there is a cairn commemorating the first all-Aboriginal cricket team to go to England? This is really quite something and gives cause to think.
Just to visit the Aboriginal Cricket Citation is enough to take what will be a long diversion. Don’t be put off.
