The Year of the Dragon


Last weekend I enjoyed a trip to Bendigo, Victoria with our Car Club. Part of the program was a visit to the Golden Dragon Museum. We were fortunate to have one of the Museum’s founders, Mr Russell Jack OAM, as our guide. He is descended from one of the early Chinese families who settled in the area during the Victorian Gold Rushes. The new dragons will feature in the Easter Procession in Bendigo on Easter Monday. The old Dragon (the third photo) has retired after many Easter processions. The Museum is well worth a visit and is only an hour and half drive from Melbourne.
