The cats out of the bag

Eldorado is nestled on the banks of Reedy Creek (downstream from Beechworth) at the end of Woolshed Valley. A natural amphitheatre housing an abundance of flora and fauna opens to the vast flat farmlands that were once swamps and wetlands.


The small village of Eldorado is a short drive from several North East towns. It’s around 15-20 minutes from Wangaratta, Beechworth and Milawa; 25-30 minutes from Glenrowan, Myrtleford, Chiltern and Rutherglen or 45 minutes from Wodonga.
Long before gold was discovered a settler, Captain William Fury Baker, named his holding of rich green pastures along the Reedy Creek, “El Dorado”. Here Baker had found his utopia - his ‘pot of gold’ - and the means to a rich life. Little did he know that hidden beyond the boundary of his property lay a vast wealth with several floors of alluvial gold and tin laid down over time, and that the miners to come would adopt the name Eldorado for their town.
