Kirkstall, Victoria

Kirkstall, located in southwest Victoria, Australia 5 kilometres from Koroit, is in the heart of the traditional lands of the local Aboriginal people; the Gunditjmara. On Monday February 25, 1861, Kirkstall was officially proclaimed a township by the then Governor of the Colony of Victoria, Sir Henry Barkly. On February 25, 2011, the town celebrated its 150th anniversary (Kirkfest website).

Kirkstall's public school shut down in 1994. Kirkstall currently has a small playground, a pub, a hall and a bus stop where people can get out of the town.
