The Alps – Part 4

Our last stop for the day was the little hamlet of Jamieson, near the shores of Lake Eildon south of Mansfield.


It was another gold rush settlement, but the terrain around these parts were so rough that it only attracted a few hundred permanent settlers.


Nevertheless, the fledgling town soon had a Catholic chapel, an Anglican church, a school, a court house and police station, two banks, two insurance offices, five hotels and several stores.


Today, it is a quaint place with a museum (closed at the time of our visit) as well as plenty of historical artifacts in public places.
