Mortons Pub

In the area around Dunolly, Victoria, there is an area referred to as Waanyarra.  Waanyarra was once a bustling goldfield with some of the purest gold found on the planet coming out of the alluvial soils.

Today remnants of the old settlement can be found mostly fallen down except for the old hotel called Morton’s.  Now its a long 200kms from Melbourne so unless you are in the area I would not make the trip unless you are planning on camping in the quiet and pretty camping spot that is in the area.  A point of caution here, be careful if you like to wander around the bush there are plenty of old mine shafts.  Many which look like they aren’t very deep.  However that can be just debris that is sitting over a much deeper hole.  So please don’t step inside any old shafts.

Now to the  photos of Mortons pub.
