Daytrips can be made from Dargo into Wonnangatta Station, Grant Historic Area, Talbotville, Howitville and Crooked River Goldfields or camping in all these areas is also very popular. Wonnangatta Station is a wide mountain valley popular with campers nowadays but was first established in the 1860’s for cattle grazing. The homestead survived until 1957, when it is said, bushwalkers lit a big fire in the building’s fireplace and it accidentally burnt down. Grant can be accessed by 2 Wheel Drives and delights visitors keen to explore the mining sites of the 1860’s. Around 2000 people called Grant home, where there were 15 hotels, a church, courthouse, many stores and a weekly newspaper ‘The Crooked River Chronicle’. The majority of the gold ran out in 10 years and the last residents left in 1916. Until then, the Post Office was kept operational due to the owner writing the required number of letters to herself to keep it open. Nowadays only a few crumbling chimneys and rusty gold mining machinery remain in the area but there are many historic sites to enjoy.
