Weekend Away - Ballarat Part 4

This year the Archibald Prize is being exhibited in Victoria at the Art Gallery of Ballarat. If you have not been to see it already, the exhibition is on until the 15th November... Tickets are $13.00 for adults and I suggest you pre-purchase your tickets to avoid disappointment. We enjoyed our time viewing the paintings and seeing how much talent Australia has to offer in the art scene.

Unfortunately my cousin, Shannon Smiley, missed out on being included in the Wynne Prize this year but you can hear him talk about the Australian suburban environment for places of enchantment and his Wynne Prize submission Backway, Heidelberg this Sunday at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery.

On the way back home we stopped by Daylesford to pick up some mineral water to take home. My favourite flavoured spring is the Wombat Flat Spring which is right next to the Lake House. I always stock up on some water here when I am in Daylesford.

We gathered our water bottles and trekked back to the car. On the way, we spotted these little guys...

Even though we were still full from such a big breakfast, we grabbed a bite to eat in the afternoon in Trentham.

Everyone was heading towards the RedBeard Historic Bakery so we thought we should give it a go... It was late so a lot of things had sold out so we both chose the Sourdough Pizza ($8.00). The pizza was okay but the toppings were a little desiccated...


Some lattes ($3.80) provided some energy...
