Wedderburn Today

Wedderburn is a sleepy farming Hamlet (Pop 900) approximately 225Km NW of Melbourne on the Calder Highway. With a rich Goldfields history Wedderburn is part of Victoria's "Golden Triangle". Gold is still found here. The locals grow Wheat, Canola and Baa-Lambs. It is the Antithesis of St. Kilda and the Melbourne CBD but has its own charm. Here I will attempt to post (hopefully) frequent portraits of daily life in Wedderburn.

Diggings


The Undulating area in the middle distance are "Diggings" from previous efforts to find Gold. Maybe up to 150 years ago. Old diggings can sometimes still yield Gold as time and weather erosion change the Landscape.

It makes a good contrast between the bue sky, the grren trees and the color of the ground. Peaceful and lightfull picture. Give me an impression of quietness.
