Chiltern is located 300 kilometres to the north east of Melbourne. Chiltern grew on the back of extensive gold discoveries in 1858 which followed on from other gold rush finds within Victoria. The gold rush architecture lives on and many of the buildings are now protected by the National Trust. The town was on the Hume Highway for many years but has since been bypassed to leave the town relatively quiet and a prime spot for tourism as it is surrounded by the Mount Pilot National Park..

Mountain biking is predominantly located in the Mount Pilot National Park which surrounds the town on the northern and eastern flanks.
