    Mansfield, Victoria

    April 3, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Mansfield is the last port of call before Jamieson. It is quite a busy town, obviously a stop on the way to the snow fields. They seem to be getting ready for the season.

    We called in at the visitor info centre and took a look at the historical rail station. Trains have not travelled to here since 1977. The line closed in 1978.

    Mansfield has one other claim to fame. The man from snowy River movies one and two were filmed there. Many s enez were also filmed nearby and in the high country. That must have been exciting for the locals.

    On the way to Mansfield we crossed a bridge that spans Lake Eildon. Last visit the water was not far below the bridge. This time we drove down well below the high water level to look at the tall bridge structure. This area definitely needs a lot of rain.
