Historical photos of Warburton VIC 3799 - Warburton Chalet and last Warburton train

Historical photos of Warburton have been supplied by local photographers. Thanks to their photography years ago and their scanning and emailing today - we can share local history and provide a window back in time to past days of Warburton. We welcome stories about these pictures and new pictures and stories. We have already established our Warburton Train murals page - so this new historical photos page will work with that existing resource.
