7/12 – 8/12 – Bendigo

Pulled into Bendigo looking for the showgrounds to camp at, we had to call into the I centre for directions and things to do. Beautiful town, the buildings remind me of Europe and win hands down over all the others we have seen. Very cosmopolitan type town, heaps of eateries, coffee shops all the stores you could ask for and very busy, busy, busy. It’s a city with its own suburbs. Took in the art gallery which also was outstanding, there was one exhibit of a sow with piglets but the artist tried to introduce a human element as if a mixed race, it was so realistic and very unsettling but you could not keep your eyes off it. The 18th century paintings were beautiful, the modern ones, once again, to us, we didn’t like. Toured around town with a heritage walk then set off to camp. Settled into the showgrounds with 2 other West Aussies then we noticed a couple of cars and vans with trailers also come in but stayed down on the bitumen and heard them talking that there is a market on in the morning. Woke at 5.00am as more and more cars, trucks etc came in and started to set up. Had our breakfast overlooking all the activity, it was huge. We joined in at about 8.00 to get some lovely fruit and veg. There was heaps to look at but we can’t take it around with us so it had to stay. There was also a horse show on and that was squeeking all day. Woke the following morning to traffic of people going to work, dogs barking, noisy neighbourhood, couldn’t wait to leave, so we did.
