Want to know where Grog Shop Gully is?

Castlemaine Historical Society has just published an excellent new map by Clive Willman: Castlemaine Diggings: historical and modern place names. It’s available at the Info Centre in Mostyn Street for $15.00. All the place names are modern, actually, since they’re all European. The names are a little history in themselves: Hit or Miss Gully, Murdering Flat, Old Hard Hill…they add up to a picture of pretty hard struggle. We do have a Shakespeare Hill, however, to add a touch of class. Strongly recommended.
