Information

Antwerp is a rural locality in the Wimmera region, north-west Victoria, 17 km north of Dimboola and 50 km north-west of Horsham. It was named after the Antwerp pastoral run which was occupied by Horatio Ellerman in 1846. It is thought that Ellerman was born in Antwerp, Belgium.

Apart from pastoral occupation, the first white settlement was Moravian missionaries who established the Ebenezer Aboriginal mission station, about four kilometres south-west of present-day Antwerp, in 1859. Both are on the Wimmera River. The Antwerp homestead was immediately north of present-day Antwerp.

Today Antwerp has a public hall, silos and an oval. The school closed in 1981. The Antwerp Rowing Regatta is a distant memory.
