Benalla, Victoria. Australia

Benalla is a small city about 188 km (120 mile) from Melbourne, in the State of Victoria, Australia.
We don't often travel through this lovely small city as it's a different way to where we want to go, but it's good to try and travel on a different road, even though it's sometimes criss crossing making the journey up north in winter to a warmer climate longer.
We prefer not to fly but to stay at motels about 400 to 500 km (248 -310 miles approx.) apart each day till we arrive at our destination.

The last time we were there was in 2012, and I wanted to take a photo of the Catholic Church, so hence I did about 15 minutes before Mass began.

St. Joseph's Church was built in 1908, with various internals added over the years including the pipe organ which I didn't get the chance to take a photo of.
