Weekend Wanderings: Malmsbury and Getting There
Malmsbury is a little town on the Calder Highway which you go through on the way to Bendigo. Since the Calder Freeway was built the town is bypassed, I don’t know how that has affected the town, but it is still a lovely part of Victoria. There are lots of things to do there, especially if you like photography.
On the way there we couldn’t help stopping to take some photos of what was left of the fog. Winter here really is a great time to take photos. They weren’t of anything special, just things that we liked.
Malmsbury is a small town and one of the biggest things to photograph is the Rail Viaduct. It was built around 1860 and still takes trains, an import part of the route that connects Bendigo to Melbourne. It has quite a few trains on it, but I have to confess, I just kept missing them.
We had a gorgeous winters day for our outing, the sun was shining, a slight chill in the air and we had a very blue sky. We walked around the local park and took photos of the ducks and geese. Then to the viaduct, and then a quick drive around to the reservoir.
I have included a map for you so you can see where Malmsbury is.
I am going to put some photos in a gallery now. It was a great day and nothing like the weekend we are having at the moment. It is cold and wet here and the best place to be is inside. Glad I went out the other day when the weather was nice. I hope you are having better luck with the weather where you are. I’m going to rug up and stay warm, work on the magazine.
