Originally named ‘Traawool’, the indigenous word for ‘wild water’, the district is dominated by agriculture and memorable scenery.

First explored by Hume and Hovell in 1824; it was later settled as a large sheep station. Development of the area improved with the building of the Trawool Railway Line to Yea in 1883.

In 1983, the National Trust awarded the area a Scenic Classification, recognising its importance as a scenic, geological and cultural site, including the diversity of flora and fauna. Bushwalking, sight-seeing, hang- gliding and rafting are all popular outdoor activities.

Ever since the early 1900’s Trawool has also been a destination for holiday makers from Melbourne enjoying its country charm and magnificent scenery. Nearby attractions include art galleries, wineries, national and state forests, historic buildings and restaurants.
