Maldon Station marks the start or finish of the Victorian Goldfields Railway. Unlike Castlemaine, at the other end of the line, Maldon is not on the main V/Line public transport network.
Maldon Station is just on the outskirts of the small Goldfields town. It’s only a ten minute walk into town and there is usually a couple of hours in Maldon before the train returns to Castlemaine, so that’s plenty of time to check out the town, which is full of interesting shops and vintage buildings.
For my experience at Maldon and for some of the historical stories picked up from the Trove website, you can go to the blog entry for the Victorian Goldfields Railway here.
Good coffee to complete the day?
My posts always try to suggest a good place for a coffee (or tea), an essential part of any day trip to Vintage places, I think.
There are lots of cafes in Maldon, but my favourite has to be the Gold Exchange Cafe, which serves up the excellent Coffee Basics, roasted in Castlemaine at the (vintage) Mill. A cosy little cafe with good spots to people-watch on Maldon’s main street.
