Heading to Castlemaine some time soon? There is plenty to do at The Mill Castlemaine.
What started as a woollen mill in 1875 has transformed into a go-to zone for visitors and locals alike - a place for food and artisan manufacturing - a part of Castlemaine’s vibrancy.
The reimagined industrial site is home to vintage markets 'the size of four basketball courts' according to journalist Emma Mulholland in her recent article in the QANTAS in flight magazine. There is also handmade cleverness and ...
The weather is getting warmer, the days and getting longer and people are out and about all over Castlemaine enjoying a myriad of wonderful exhibitions and events.

Opening in July 2015, Coffee Basic’s Das Kaffeehaus was the first enterprise to open in the former Castlemaine Woollen Mill. It is a contemporary Viennese coffee house in a former industrial assembly floor.

Long Weekend at the Mill
