Gold!

From one goldmining town to another.. I'm back from an awesome (long) weekend in Victoria, spending most of my time in and Ballarat where gold was found in the early 1850s. The mines have closed long ago but gold is still everywhere in Ballarat: you can pan for gold (mainly for fun) here or on Sturt Street!

Golly you get around!

I have not been to Sovereign Hill for about 30 years! Probably worth another visit.

Haha! A few years ago I was on a day trip to Sovereign Hill but we didn't actually stop in Ballarat, much to my disappointment because it look like a beautiful town. So I promised myself I'd come back.. and I did!

You definitely should go back!

Victoria is a lovely state and so easy to get around.
