Holbrook is a rural town of some 1500 people on the Hume Freeway 60kms North of Albury within Greater Hume Shire. Located within driving distance to the Murray River and Dora Dora State Forest, Holbrook is an ideal place to live between Sydney and Melbourne.
Holbrook, once named Germanton, is in the centre of a productive pastoral district. The renaming of the town came about during the First World War when strong anti-German feelings required by law the renaming of the town. The township was renamed Holbrook in honour of Lt. Norman Holbrook who carried out an extraordinary act of bravery against a Turkish warship. The town proudly displays a collection of submarines including the B11, of 1914 Dardanelles fame and HMAS Otway, a 90-metre submarine.
St. Patrick's School is located in the centre of town immediately opposite the ever popular Holbrook Bakery.
