THEY say that Vic­to­rian coun­try town Beau­fort is be­tween the two “rats” – that’d be Bal­larat and Ararat. Some peo­ple know it for an elec­tronic dance fes­ti­val held on a farm, oth­ers as the birth­place of the man who in­vented Vegemite. And if you ever won­dered what hap­pened to ’90s mu­si­cian Max Sharam (pic­tured), who had the hit Coma, well, she’s back liv­ing in her home­town Beau­fort and is on a cru­sade to save the town’s his­toric build­ings. That in­cludes a pri­mary school that dates back to 1863, the old­est sur­viv­ing school of its type in Vic­to­ria. How­ever, the town is at a cross­roads, as the main street is about to be by­passed by traf­fic that’s kept the town alive.
