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.

The Korong Dairy

The old dairy in Ridge Street has been owned by the same local family for many years and was operational until around 5 years ago. Milk was delivered locally and as far afield as Boort, 40Km away. Nowadays the milk comes from one of the large national dairies which is a shame.

For this photo :
By us also the little enterprises are closing. They are supplanted by bigger and it's a shame, because people cannot work anymore wher they are born or in the family enterprise.
