The township was settled in the early 1850s, the Post Office opening on 1 April 1853. A railway line linking the town to Hamilton was opened on 2 November 1915.

The local pub, The Bunyip Hotel, brews a variety of beers.

The Bridge Cafe serves a variety of delectable foods, from takeaways to yummy snacks, and is also a small general store, with gas bottle exchange available, a Post Office, and clean and welcoming dine-in facilities.

There is a lovely walk along the Wannon River, with views of waterbirds and other birds, as well as sheep, which, along with cattle, are a major local industry.

Four Churches service the Community. There is also a Caravan/Camping area, a Police Station, and some accommodation if required. The Kindergarten and Primary School are well attended.

Cavendish is a nice little stop between Dunkeld, the Grampians and Hall's Gap, as well as being between Horsham and Hamilton and many other rural towns. There is a public bus service, the mobile library from Hamilton makes regular visits, and there is also a Men's Shed.
