Visit Walkerville Lime Kilns
Visit Walkerville Lime Kilns
Walkerville 21 klms from Tarwin Lower is one of the oldest establishments in Victoria, and is reminiscent of a Cornish fishing village but was actually established as a port for the transport of lime. The remains of the old lime kilns set in the cliffs can still be seen and are well worth the visit. In the early days workers at the lime kilns tried their luck panning for gold - a small amount was found in the area.
