A shot of the Murray River just on the border of Victoria and NSW.
The same river further down. Note the warm clothes I am wearing. The 30 degrees of Coober Pedy is but a distant memory. It is more like 12 degrees here in Victoria and rain is forecast too.
But the wattle blossoms make up for some of the pain of the cold. They are so very pretty along the way.
One of Australia's finest streetscapes of Victorian architecture is Ballarat's Lydiard Street where impressive buildings line the way.
The city was built on gold and like its neighbour Bendigo, it is a very historic town.
It is quite fitting that we started one of our other blog books at Bendigo and we end this blog book with Ballarat.
