Talbot, a living ghost town, only two hours from Melbourne

In the 1850s, Talbot was a bustling town, full of gold from the thousands of miners crowding its streets. Today it’s a place of golden silence – a secret getaway to relax and daydream, a writers and artists paradise.

Glimpse history in the heritage buildings and museums lining Talbot’s tranquil streets.
