Information

Alexandra is a significant regional centre, located at the junction of the Goulburn Valley Highway (B340) and Maroondah Highway (B360), in the Shire of Murrindindi local government area.

Gold mining was the catalyst that led to the development of the town with many mines around Alexandra and, particularly, along the UT (Ultima Thule) creek that runs through the centre of town.

Leckie Park, which is over 11 hectares in area, is centrally located in Alexandra together with other smaller reserves throughout.

Lake Eildon, a major water storage, is only 12 kilometres to the east of the Alexandra Regional Centre.

Alexandra is often referred to as the gateway to the high country, alongside neighbouring town Yea. Residents of Mansfield on the other side of Eildon Wier might dispute this!

For many years Alexandra & District has been very popular with anglers with the Goulburn River nearby and a number of other smaller streams not far away. It is also on the Great Victorian Rail Trail (GVRT)
