The historic town of Rushworth comprises of 2 small towns that were moved together during the gold rush days. Whroo, a gold mining town, was moved 8kms north to make way for further mining, and Waranga another small town was moved 5kms west to make way for the formation of a new irrigation scheme called the Murray Goulburn Irrigation System. The two towns joined as one and became Rushworth. It is now a small rural town boasting 1000 residents and another 1000 in the surrounding district. Rushworth is surrounded by a large iron bark forrest, picturesque rivers and laid back lifestyle.
