"Small town with lots to offer"

Best known for its recognisable bluestone buildings, Mortlake is a small rural town with lots to offer. Home to a golf course, horse racing club, facilities and clubs for football, netball, cricket and tennis, and the Annual Australian Busking Championships, Mortlake is an ideal location for families with children but would also suit retirees. There are two local schools for children of all ages and Melbourne's city centre is over 200km away. Thousands of street performers visit the area every year, adding to the less than 1000 people who live here permanently. Mortlake is nestled between two major agricultural districts providing the local area with a solid supply of wool and dairy.

"Busking festival worth a look"

If you fancy yourself as a busker, you may like to make a trip to Mortlake in south-west Victoria. The small town is home to the Australian busking competition, where the country's best busker is crowned. The festival is a great community event with plenty of entertainment, food and other activities. Mortlake is also very picturesque, with a number of significant bluestones buildings in the town. Mortlake has come a long way in recent years and has become quite a popular place to live.
