The Greta Heritage Group is dedicated to preservation and re-telling of the story of the people and places located in the greater Greta region within north-east Victoria.

The Greta Heritage Group is dedicated to preserving the rich history and heritage of the Greta district located in northeast Victoria, better known as Kelly Country. Today as you drive through the area known as Greta West, little remains to show that this was where the original township of Greta was situated. In 1842 a squatter named Robertson bought the Fifteen Mile Creek Run and named it ‘Greta’. He also opened an Inn, which he named the ‘Greta Inn’. It is interesting to note that Fifteen Mile Creek was named because it was fifteen miles from Benalla and that the name ‘Greta’ comes from a river of the same name in Yorkshire, England.
