TALBOT AND DISTRICT
Talbot is between Clunes and Maryborough and is the southern gateway to the
central Victorian goldfields. It is less than two hours from Melbourne, 40
minutes from Ballarat and 30 minutes from Avoca. Talbot's population is about
300, with a further 600 people living in the immediate area.
In spite of this, the spirit of Talbot is indomitable and long-time residents are now being joined by new ones and significant rebuilding of community spirit, assets, and historic buildings has begun.
The Talbot Farmer's Market is the third Sunday of each month, has well over 100 stalls, and attracts several thousand visitors each market.
District accommodation options range from caravan park and motel, to
bed & breakfasts and farmstays. The hotel offers great old-fashioned
pub meals, whilst takeaway food is available from both the corner shop.
Great espresso coffee, cake and light lunches are available from London House on
weekends and public holidays.
