St Arnaud - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located about 240 km northwest of Melbourne, the historic township of St Arnaud was settled in 1855 after the gold rush in the region of the 1850s. It was known as the New Bendigo Goldfield, then renamed St Arnaud, honouring the commander of the French Forces in the Crimean War – Jaques Leroy de St Arnaud – Marshal of France and a senator.

Many of the streets in the town are named after British military leaders involved in the same war.

Similar to other towns born out of the gold rush, St Arnaud has a number of solid civic buildings, hotels and stores adorned with cast iron lace work. The town is encircled with bushland, providing habitat for many native animals and plants.
