We recently visited the gold mining town of Avoca, Vic. Avoca Lions Club has kindly provided a spacious RV park on Dundas Street which is only a block back from the main street (Sunraysia Highway) and beside the Avoca River. There is a modern amenities building, the site is level with plenty of turning room and a sheltered BBQ area.
The Avoca Hotel is charming and has had a new lease on life. We once stayed there in the 1980’s and there was what looked suspiciously like a bullet hole in our bedroom window. The ‘old girl’ certainly looks more salubrious these days.
For history buffs like us there is plenty to see; the community has created a peaceful Chinese Garden honouring its Chinese heritage. And a short walk from the Lions Park is the original Victoria Police headquarters where Woody’s Great Grandfather served as a Sergeant and Powder Magazine Keeper in the rough and tumble of the 1860’s.
