|Freezing weather at Bendigo|
I had heard a little about Bendigo Woollen Mills and decided I wanted to visit. Melbourne is a good days drive from Terrigal and is in another state. So to make it into an adventure we decided to catch a train. Packed a winter bag....teenage son dropped us at Gosford station. Had a nice meal and drink at China town and then boarded the XPT to Melbourne. While we had a sleeper.....not much sleep happened and arrived at Melbourne the next morning to discover the trains to Bendigo had been replaced by buses.
A week after I visited the mills, the show room was renovated to include a bigger range of their products.
Bendigo wool is available is huge range of colours, varieties and plys. While I wanted to buy stacks I was very disciplined as we were travelling by public transport and had limited space and their new web site is great. Travelled back to Melbourne and stayed for a few days before returning home.
