I am back again for the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge so have made the commitment to blog every day in April except the Sundays. Some bloggers choose a Theme, and others do random posts. For me, a theme works better, so the theme I’ve chosen for 2016 is Bendigo, a large provincial city in central Victoria, Australia. I live just outside Bendigo and have been in this area for only 9 years, so feel I still have ‘visitors eyes’.
W is for Weeroona – Lake Weeroona, which is situated very prominently just a few blocks from the CBD of Bendigo. Lake Weeroona, is an ornamental lake and reserve which in the 1800s was a gold mining area.
There is a cycle/walking track around the lake and a cafe which is popular both walkers and cyclists. The fantastic adventure playground with rubberised safety surface for the kids is always packed.
Each year there is a large calendar of athletic events and fun runs held at Lake Weeroona.
Any Sunday will see large groups of friends and families enjoying the facilities including BBQ areas.
