7 October 2017 - First Stop Castlemaine

Left this morning just before 9 am. Beautiful clear day and all went well. Our route took us up the Calder Highway and past Mt Macedon. We decided to spend the first night in Castlemaine. Luke and I overnighted here on our last motorbike trip and I was impressed with this beautiful old mining town. We set up in the Big 4 caravan park here which is located right next to the Castlemaine Botanical Garden.
Everywhere you look here it is obvious this was once a very busy and prosperous town - lots of old factories some of which are being converted to cafe and art precincts.
We're spending two nights here and will probably take a drive to Bendigo tomorrow. Then on Monday we'll continue on to Mildura. Hopefully we'll find more sunny weather.


  1. Everything is so green and pretty in that first photo. Very nice.

  2. The second photo looks like it could have been taken by Charles Sheeler--very nice...

    1. Have just checked out the photography of Charles Steeler - high praise indeed. Thanks

  3. Thanks for sharing these great photos of your travels. I will be on the lookout for more posts of your trips in the near future. Have a great day.
