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.

Nice green brown contrast thing going here. Mainly the gold found by casual goldseekers today is in the creeks, is that right?

Yes, the creeks, and also using electronic detectors. I have a couple of friends that do this. Watch this space.

A very dry country. How the animals find their food ?
