Among these is Thorpe Water Mill (circa 1823) which has been restored to produce stone ground flour. The first golf course in Australia was built at Bothwell in 1837, and can still be played. There are several high quality craft shops and galleries in the town.
Self-guided walking tours are possibly the best means of seeing Bothwell's history. Queens Park in the centre of town is a particularly pleasing sight. Bothwell is home to the International Highland Spin-in, a wool spinning competition marking the town's agricultural heritage.
Bothwell is located to the southeast of the lakes region, and has six 3½-star RACT rated accommodations.
