Chiltern

20km south-east of Rutherglen is the small town of Chiltern. It’s half the population of Rutherglen, but just a quaint.

Like Rutherglen, the beautiful buildings came courtesy of the Gold Rush in the 1860s. Like this old Bank of New South Wales.

There was even a bit of Chinese history in the town.

You know you’re in country Australia when you see sights like these.

Stubbies and thongs may represent the Australia of the past, but I think a cup of coffee (with a bit of coffee art) represents the Australia of the present.
