Jamieson - Cities, Towns and Localities
The rural village of Jamieson is located in a wonderful scenic location at the confluence of the Goulburn and Jamieson Rivers.

The village is thought to have derived its name from George Jamieson, a shepherd who grazed sheep in the area in the 1850s, with the first permanent settlement in 1860. By 1861 there were some 300 people working the goldfields. Surveyed in 1862, a borough council was established in 1864. By the 1870s, Jamieson reached its peak with a Catholic chapel, an Anglican church, school, two banks, two insurance offices, five hotels, several stores, court house and police station. However, a sharp decline followed, with most mining operations in the area having ceased by the beginning of the First World War. The Black Friday bushfires destroyed many mine workings in 1939.
 

By the 1990s, the village and region had gained popularity as a tourist destination, and with the damming of the Goulburn River and the creation of Lake Eildon saw the number of visitors rising. However, the drought saw a downturn in the tourism industry in the early 2000s, and by March 2007, the capacity of the lake had reached an historic low of 7.9%.

Today, the village has a permanent population of approximately 250 people, and continues to be a popular destination for 4WD enthusiasts, amateur gold dredgers, and due to its closeness to the snowfields of Mount Buller1.
