A little about our little town Bacchus Marsh, Victoria: Situated about 50 kilometres west of Melbourne is the small urban locality of Bacchus Marsh. With a population of close to 19,000 people, the town is reportedly the largest urban area in the local government region of the Moorabool Shire.
Conventionally a market garden region, Bacchus Marsh is still considered a town, producing large amounts of the area’s vegetables and fruits.
Captain William Henry Bacchus, one of the original inhabitants, envisioned a great wealth in the locality because of its position on the Werribee and Lerderderg rivers. Hence, the town was named after him.
The Kurung Aboriginal tribe were considered the original inhabitants of the region before white settlement. Even after European settlement, around 150 to 400 Aborigines still occupied their meeting grounds, holding corroborees regularly. Although no skirmishes were reported between the indigenous tribes and the white settlers, by 1863, there were only 33 Aboriginals remaining in the Bacchus Marsh area.
The only remnants of Aboriginal habitation is now in the names of rivers, namely, the Djerriwarrh, Coimadai, Korkuperrimul, Merrimu, Lerderderg, Mymiong and Werribee rivers.
In 1836, Kenneth Scobie Clarke, one of the first settlers, travelled west from Port Phillip with a large flock of sheep, and arrived in the district of Bacchus Marsh some days later. After building his hut on the banks of the Lerderderg River, Clarke stayed until 1838. That same year, Captain William Henry Bacchus and his son arrived in the area with sheep from Tasmania.
In the 1850s, Irish immigrants built a stone bridge overpassing Djerriwarrh Creek to the goldfields. Richard Griffith, one of the original builders, decided to stay in the region and members of his family are still in residence on a farm around the bridge area.
The original name of the township was as the Ballan Post Office which was named in approximately 1844. Bacchus Marsh was officially named in 1850, and on 30 September 1856, the Bacchus Marsh Road District Board was declared. Because the road through the town was impassable during the wet, one of the first tasks of the Board was to construct a gravel road.
In 1862, Bacchus Marsh was formed as a district with the Road Board as the governing body. In 1871, the Bacchus Marsh Shire was established.
A favoured recreation area is Maddingley Park, which is a beautiful attraction to visitors and locals. Opposite the Bacchus Marsh railway station, close to the park’s south gate, is the gorgeous Nieuwesteeg Heritage Rose Garden.
