Boorhamen 3678

Boorhamen is a rural village near the Ovens river, 15 km. north of Wangaratta in north-eastern Victoria.

The Boorhamen pastoral station was recorded in 1865 as a subdivision of the earlier Botherambo pastoral run (1839). The origin and meaning of the word are uncertain.

A Catholic school was opened in Boorhamen in 1868 and a government school was opened nine years later.

Boorhamen is situated in flat, open country, with a State forest on the Ovens river flood plain two kilometres west. It is an agricultural district and the village has a hotel, public hall, golf course, primary school and a Catholic church. The Methodist church was removed to Eldorado in 1965.

Boorhamen's census populations have been 323 (1911) and 195 (1961).
