Buxton

Here the Acheron River tumbles in cool cascades on its way to the Goulburn; here trout splash and in cool leafy glades the angler finds his paradise. Not far away is the Cathedral Range, landmark for many miles, a place for magnificent views, and a constant magnet to walkers and climbers.

 

The Argus, 12 January 1938

Buxton has been a thriving agricultural community and famous trout-fishing area since the 19th century.
