Bolobek – Mt Macedon one of the most picturesque places for gardens in Victoria.

Wonderful to visit some of my childhood places earlier this year we lived just down the road in McBean Avenue and spent many hours on this property whilst waiting for my dad to finish his job as a farmer at Bolobek looking after thousands of Sheep and Cattle on massive land I would sometimes swim in the pool that no longer stands because of fire having ripped through Macedon and Mt Macedon, disappointed the swimming pool was no longer  there because I am sure I would have jumped in it reliving some of those memories at just 12 years old the property was then owned by David Syme and company who used to own the Age paper here in Melbourne this was their weekend retreat,Macedon made even more famous now as being the home of this years Melbourne cup winner.

A privileged childhood we had close access to go Fishing/Rabiting/Shooting/space for all animals/Opportunity to learn to drive motor vehicles at a young age /back to Snow in the Winter months on the mountain top at Mt Macedon/a creek that ran the full length of the property where you could swim in parts I used to sail my little boats down stream so gum-boots were very much a part of my life and one of my brothers mates who owned a T/model Ford would sometimes drop us at the gate at Macedon state school where many kids were under the impression we were some kind of celebrities always would there be children lined up at the front of the school to greet us,all of my other 9 brothers and sisters were good at their chosen sports,dad played some musical instruments and mum had a delightful soprano like voice ,we would often hear her singing in the laundry when it came time to do the washing so much of it with that many kids I guess she had to entertain herself in other way’s married for 42 years.
