Lan­caster group takes in Bendigo

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

LAN­CASTER Com­mu­nity Group’s Septem­ber bus trip to Bendigo was a great day out for all in­volved.

Group mem­ber Mar­garet Bow­ers said the group vis­ited sev­eral pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tions in the area and en­joyed lunch and some re­tail ther­apy.

“We first stopped for morn­ing tea at Beech­worth Bak­ery, then back on the bus for the trip to Bendigo’s iconic vin­tage Talk­ing Tram and a visit to the gift shop,” she said.

“We were to go out to the Joss House Tem­ple but be­cause of work be­ing done on the track we in­stead vis­ited the tramway’s work­shop and gift shop.

“It was very in­ter­est­ing learn­ing that the de­pot was com­pleted in 1903 for the op­er­a­tion of elec­tric trams.

‘‘The first de­pot was con­structed in 1890 near the rail­way sta­tion.”

Af­ter the de­pot, the group was back on the bus to the Bendigo Mar­ket­place where ev­ery­one ei­ther had lunch or shopped un­til 3pm then headed home af­ter an en­joy­able day.
