Explore Buloke Bus Trip 3
An enthusiastic group of Charlton residents enjoyed a visit arranged by the Charlton Neighbourhood House to several of the Shire’s towns last Friday, as the final ‘Explore Buloke’ bus trip was completed. Previous journeys have taken locals from Sea Lake to Yeungroon, and Nullawil to Coonooer Bridge, with lots of interesting places in between. This trip the group left Charlton Travellers Rest and headed towards Donald for a browse around the town. Watchem was the next stop to view the new silo art and a stop at the magnificent Watchem Church. The visitors were grateful to a local volunteer who gave up their time for the impressive inside tour. Final town stop was Birchip to check out the new streetscape works and murals around the town and to enjoy some lunch. The weather was pleasant as the bus dropped in to Tchum Lake for the final stop on the way home.
A big thankyou goes out from Charlton Neighbourhood House to Buloke Shire, and the funding made available through their CASI grant. This money helped subsidize the cost of the bus making the days affordable for everyone. Also, to the various volunteers who assisted on the trips, and the drivers who got everyone around safely.”
