In 1857, Warrandyte became the site of the first official gold discovery in Victoria and the ruins of mineshafts and tunnels can be found throughout the state parks. In the early 20th century, Warrandyte became a popular destination for artists of the Heidelberg School. This led to the development of an artists' camp and small colony.
Set in a beautiful river valley, Warrandyte is now a commuter suburb of Melbourne with a strong community spirit.
