Jamieson Store

We had a few day trips from the farm between Christmas and New Year, one of them was going around Lake Eildon from Alexandra to Mansfield the long way. A lovely scenic drive along dirt roads, much more interesting than the highway.

Jamieson is a lovely Gold Rush town [^], established in 1854 at the junction of the Goulburn and Jamieson Rivers. At one stage 3-4,000 people lived here, now it’s down to 100. It sure looks like the Jamieson Store has seen better days. Years of drought have done terrible things to tourism around Lake Eildon, but in 2012 things were coming back.
