Autumn of a mining town

Australia, 1972

Film
Autumn of a mining town thumbnail image.

Perhaps due to its fascinating past and equally astonishing present, the Victorian gold rush town of Ballarat catches the quintessence of Victorian Australia - the curious old homes; the old tramcars; the coffee palace; the Cobb & Co office; the gardens and the people. No narration. Suitable for upper primary and lower secondary levels.
