So nice to wander the main street of Maldon. One can almost hear and visualise the horses and carriages in the street. So many interesting and varied stroes to browse of just visit.

If you have ever wondered what Australia was like 150 years ago just take a leisurely stroll through this historic precinct. It is not at all difficult to picture yourself in the gold rush days
