Mitta Mitta is a very small country town between Tallangatta and Omeo on the Omeo Highway and close to the Darmouth Dam. The Omeo Hwy is a narrow winding road with scenic views of river valleys passing the famous Blue Duck Inn where our grand parents stayed. The historic gold mining towns of Glen Wills and Glen Valley are still there while Sunnyside where 20,000 people lived during the gold rush is now totally overgrown with no signs evident. Only a road sign marks the spot. In the ‘60s there was a picture of the tent town in the club house on Mount Wills. This picture of Sunnyside is probably long gone.
