A couple of weeks back, we had an overnight stay to Bendigo (girls’ trip to the White Wedding Dress exhibition, which I’m told was impressive). I had a look at the Bendigo gallery, which isn’t large, but it does have a number of nice works. We also visited the Chinese museum, which seemed to pretty honest in its description of history. And they have several dragons there, for use in the Easter parade – well, the big new one is, the older one has been pensioned off. On the way back from Bendigo we checked out some of the Heathcote wines and had a nice platter for lunch at the Shelmerdine winery (at Tooborac) - recommended. However, I didn't take any pictures.
