(3799, 73 km E, Yarra Ranges Shire)

In the 1890s the Lands Department subdivided residential and farm lots at the Warburton Village Settlement between Yarra Junction and Warburton. Later called West Warburton, the name was abbreviated in 1925 to Wesburn. Guesthouses catered for a growing tourist trade in the 1920s, while saw mills at Britannia Creek are the remnant of an industry that flourished in the first decades of the 20th century.
