DescriptionMajorca is a locality in central Victoria, Australia. The locality is in the Shire of Central Goldfields, 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) south of Maryborough and 171 kilometres (106 mi) north west of the state capital, Melbourne. At the 2006 census, Majorca and the surrounding rural area had a population of 387. Now a ghost town, Majorca was founded in 1863— towards the end of the Victorian gold rush—after two prospectors struck gold at nearby McCallum’s Creek. Two months later, there were 250 stores and restaurants catering to a population of around three to four thousand, although many shops and residents soon returned to nearby Maryborough. Majorca was sustained for over 50 years through gold mining, including the Kong Meng Mine. It is now a rural area consisting mainly of farmland.
