It has a golf course, tennis courts, a school, a pub and a convenience store/petrol station. It lies between Heathcote and Bendigo. Axedale has at least four churches, approximately one for every 220 residents of the town. In years past, it was host to The Titanic Museum, a home-based museum notable for charging fees to behold a 90cm replica of the famous vessel. The Post Office opened on 21 April 1862. The town was served by the Axedale railway station on the Heathcote railway line from 1888 until 1941. The town was the end point of the O'Keefe Rail Trail from Bendigo along the former railway reservation. In 2015, work was completed on extending the rail trail from Axedale to Heathcote. As part of the Campaspe River crossing, an underpass for the Rail Trail was also built under the McIvor Highway.
