The Goldfields Track: Ballarat to Bendigo with David McCrae
20/01/2022 @ 1:00 am - 2:00 am
The delights of Central Victoria
From the top of Mount Buninyong to the Alexandra Fountain in Bendigo: 234 kms, 12 days. Each day with a surprise from when Victoria produced three tonnes of gold a week and when Australia was the richest country in the world.
It was impossible not to think about the land, and its various forms of management and exploitation. It was also impossible not to marvel at the evidence, now from 170 years ago, of the frenzy that the prospect of finding gold had generated.
