Berriwillock is situated in the Mallee Region of Victoria, 333KM Northwest of Melbourne. Situated on the Calder Highway, approximately halfway between Bendigo and Mildura. 77 km to the West is the township of Swan Hill and the Mighty Murray River. Berriwillock is a small town within the Buloke Shire of approx. 200 people, it has a renowned wheat growing and farming community that has been actively growing grain since 1892.

The Golden Crown Hotel is the local pub, which was built in 1896 by Fairbanks and Wilson from local limestone and bricks which had been made and fired on the banks of the Tyrrell Creek. Legend has it that the name first appeared on a piece of tin nailed on a post in front of the old bag shanty which preceded the present building.

The Berriwillock Post Office opened on the 16th of April 1894 shortly after the arrival of the railway. More detailed information on the Post Office can be found under the HISTORY tab.

Berriwillock has many Community and Sporting clubs which include, The Bowling Club, Tennis Club, Golf Club, Garden Club, and the elusive Berriwillock Surfing Club, though we are yet to host an Australian Longboard Title.
