Origin of the name
Garibaldi in Victoria was a mining district. The township of Garibaldi grew around mines along the gold lead. At the time of the opening of the Garibaldi Sunday School the mining industry was flourishing and the population large and prosperous. The population gradually drifted to other centres, and the district settled into agricultural and dairying pursuits. The only evidence of past mining being the mullock heaps.
Garibaldi is in the Golden Plains Shire.
