16th December, (Bendigo).

We have spent the last couple of days at Bendigo, and have decided this is a place that one must return to and spend a fair while, as there seems to be so much to see, especially in the way of old buildings. It was a culture shock to see the nature of some of the buildings, which just simply demonstrates how much money there was in this area in the hey days. They are colossal, with the amount of work put into them being a spectacle to be believed.
