Deniliquin, NSW

As you drive into Deniliquin you can not help but notice that It’s flat. Very flat, flatter than Captains Flat and a lot of other flat things. Indeed, Deniliquin is on the Hay Plains, the area with the smallest deviation of elevation on Earth. So what do you do...

Bendigo, VIC

Another early start meant another early arrival, this time into Bendigo. Bendigo is another town founded off the spoils of the gold rush and you can not fail to be impressed by the splendour of the many extravagant Victorian buildings that line the wide streets of...

Ballarat, VIC

I first encountered close ties with the Australian Gold rush when I was in the historic New South Wales town of Gulgong where gold was discovered towards the end of the rush. Ballarat was there nearer the start with gold being found three miles to the north east of...

Geelong, VIC

From a distance I thought I was going to really enjoy Geelong. I say from a distance as I took the route signposted as the scenic route to this seaside town and took in a great view including the Cunningham PIer – I was curious. Could it be that I’ve found...

Wangaratta, VIC

I arrived at Wangaratta at lunch time and popped into the tourist information office to ask what the must see attraction was in the town. The first thing I noticed was a large statue of Ned Kelly, the famous bushranger, and then a friendly lady appeared behind the...

Seymour, VIC

I arrived in Seymour late in the afternoon, just as the shops were preparing to close. The town centre came across as a little lopsided as all the shops are on one side of the high street whilst the towns train station and railway line is the other – thats not a...
