My old country house and garden: 2000 - 2009.

This blog contains pics of my old house & garden in Creswick Victoria. I left there in 2009, lived in a Van for a year & wrote a book about it called Vagabondage I now live and write on the Central Coast NSW.

Creswick is a lovely little town, just 15 mins from Ballarat (Victoria). Ballarat is a university town, and has heaps to offer as well as being only an hour by train to Melbourne.

Creswick is an old goldrush town from the 19thC, and was home at the turn of the 20th century to the Lindsay family (artist and writer Norman Lindsay being the most famous of this creative family), as well as the young John Curtin (Australian wartime PM).

Creswick is 20 mins drive from Daylesford, and 15 mins from Clunes which has an annual book fair and literary festival.

Also check out the Creswick old Railway station community arts project, the Creswick Gardening Facebook page, and The Good Move - Creswick, Clunes, Talbot Facebook page.

Warmest wishes to the wonderful folk of Creswick, and to the spirit of my little old house (and all the garden spirits) and to its new owner-caretaker.
