We recently had a chat with Ricko from Australia Re-Discovered. This is what he had to say about Dargo.

G’day folks, it’s Ricko here from Australia Re-Discovered with Ricko. Australia Re-Discovered is a new web based series available for streaming on Youtube.
The show is all about telling stories from Australia’s past, and as we all know, the Victorian High Country has some amazing stories to tell.

We recently had the opportunity to head to some of the most stunning country Victoria has to offer to shoot our first episode of the series – how could we say no?

To us, Dargo is the heartbeat of the High Country – the perfect place to base yourself while you take in the incredible four wheel driving, scenery and history on offer!

Whether it’s checking out some of the terrific old huts in the region, or perhaps exploring the relics of mining days long gone, as we found, the Dargo region truly has something for everyone.

Of course, no trip to Dargo would be complete without an afternoon or evening at the infamous Dargo Hotel!
The atmosphere is always welcoming and the staff are friendly and helpful. While you’re there we also suggest you duck over the road to pick up any last minute supplies or fuel from the well-equipped Dargo General Store – more great folk who are always happy to say g’day!

If Dargo is not on your bucket list – it should be! Check out episode 1 of Australia ReDiscovered with Ricko – High Country Huts, legendary bushmen & murder most foul!

Caption: In this episode of Australia ReDiscovered with Ricko, we go deep into the Victorian High Country to discover the stories behind some of the most popular huts in the alpine region. We look at the stories behind the old huts, and the bushmen who worked there across a variety of industries including cattle, mining and in the timber trade. We also take a look into one of the High County’s most infamous murder mysteries – the Wonanngatta Murder! Join Ricko and he and his trusty 4×4, Winnie the GU Patrol tackle the amazing 4WD tracks in the iconic Vic High Country in search of the best yarns the region has to offer! The team at Australia ReDiscovered with Ricko would like to acknowledge and show gratitude to the Elders past, present and future of the Kurnai people for their historic and ongoing care and custodianship of this country.
