More Euroa, Victoria

Up Mt. Wombat in the High Country at Strathbogie (population about 309 people) to see the view, trees are nice but cloud the view.






The North Eastern Hotel was once a beautiful building.  The owner who lives in the building refuses to maintain it.  Apparently on the corner of the building is the Pub which is beautiful inside so we were told.


Below photo is the back of the Hotel.




The RSL Have several statues of their late towns men who fought in the War.
This tree below is near by in the park.




The bridge that goes over the Seven Creeks.
The Weir down the other end.
The weir across Seven Creeks at Euroa formed the pre-Olympic swimming pool for the town. Pre-Olympic swimming pools in Victoria are those that were replaced by standard 8-lane, chlorinated 50 metre Olympic swimming pools in the swimming pool funding spree leading up to the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.

  1. Pity about the old pub. Perhaps it is demolition by neglect.

    1. Hopefully one day when the lady dies that owns the pub someone might restore it and make it viable in some way.

  2. I would have liked to have seen the inside of the hotel and the pub. Maybe next time. :)

    1. Thought about going inside to see what it was like in the pub area, but didn't as it was getting a bit late.

  4. Pequeña población, donde se puede descansar, sin las prisas que hay en la ciudad. L Naturaleza ahí, da buenas muestras de belleza.

  5. Definitely a pity about the pub. It wouldn't be cheap to restore though - or to restore properly anyway.

    1. Cost a fortune to restore but I expect the women that owns it wouldn't have the money.

  7. Shame about the rundown pub........seems a bit odd. I wonder if the owner is a bit old and just has a licencee running the bar area. Certainly does not appear to have any residents, eg: school teachers, bank "johnnies" etc.
    Very odd situation, Margaret indeed.
    A building just going to waste really.

    Country towns certainly do "Honour the Fallen Sons and Daughters" of conflicts,
    especially after "The War supposedly to end all wars! (1914-18).

  10. The statue reminds me of the one we have nearby. It's of a Confederate soldier from the Civil War.

  12. What a shame that hotel isn't maintained. Perhaps the owner can't afford it?
    I like the duck :)

    1. I'm sure it's expensive and the owner doesn't have the money but then she could and doesn't want to part with her money...

  13. What an elegant old hotel! It would be a tourist attraction, for sure!
    The reflections of the bridge are lovely! Great tour!

  14. The betting and the horse racing fraternity of this area - Euroa, would be
    maybe somewhat richer today!!!
    The winner of Saturday's Caulfield Cup is trained in that area.
    Seems David Hayes has a big training and spelling operation in
    the Euroa horse breeding area.
