Glencoe

Glencoe

Glencoe is home of the Glencoe National Trust Woolshed which is a beautifully preserved 19th-century woolshed, master built from locally quarried stone and hand-hewn blackwood timbers. Other attractions in the area include Lake Edward, Lake Leake, Keelap Glade Park, the Honan Mint Trail and the infamous Ghost Mushroom Lane (available to view in May and June).

Robert and Edward Leake named their station Glencoe after Glencoe in Scotland but there are actually two settlements: Glencoe and Glencoe West. In its heyday, Glencoe had a bakery, a hardware store, a mechanical workshop, two cheese factories, two halls, two post offices, two sawmills, two shops, two schools and four churches. The Post Office and General Store are still operating and the Glencoe East Hall is still being used. The Progress Association remains active as does the Glencoe Central School and kindergarten. Glencoe also fields teams in the Mid South East Football and Netball Leagues.
Local industries include dairy, cattle and sheep farming, seasonal potato growing, forestry and cherry farms (one of which is open for sales during the season).

Glencoe is in the south of the Wattle Range Council area. It is 30-35 kms south (depending on the route) of Millicent along the Princes Highway, 65kms southwest of Penola and 68kms south of Beachport, via Millicent.
