The Castlemaine Quirk

The Castlemaine Quirk #13

Q: What and where is this?


A: It’s the seat from an old, well I forget: a cannon I think. I know that’s a rubbish answer and I shall endeavour to look properly when next I find myself at the station and not in a terrible rush. It’s in the parkland adjacent to Castlemaine Train Station (Kennedy St side). It’s a trophy’of war — a bit like those cannons outside the RSL in Victory Park.
