Kilmore was a refuge for early Celtic settlers from Ireland, Scotland and Cornwall, and remains a strong Celtic area to this day. The town hosts a market each month, and a Celtic Festival each June. Many of Kilmore's oldest buildings are made of bluestone including the hospital, old court house, former post office, some churches, a gaol, and a monument to Hume and Hovell near the golf course.
There is a playground and free tennis court next to the train station, regular home produce swap meets (Kilmore fruit and vegie swap and Wallan home harvest) and many other events throughout the year. Most services are available locally and there are a range of independent shops, restaurants and Library on hand as well.
On a leisurely weekend why not play a game of golf at the local golf club, watch the horse racing or one of the many events held at Kilmore Racing club, take the kids to the miniature railway for a ride on a train or Monument Hill Reserve is a great place to walk/ride, especially in spring. You will often see wallabies, crimson rosellas and sometimes even echidnas.
The town has two private secondary schools and two primary schools; Kilmore Primary School, St Patrick's Primary school, Assumption College, and the Kilmore International School. The Australian Training College is also based in Kilmore delivering a range of nationally accredited courses.
