SADDLERY


























An old saddler's shop dating from 1853 in the small country town of Clunes in the Central Goldfields of Victoria, Australia. This is the place where Victoria’s history changed so dramatically with the first gold being discovered here and the great gold rush was on, with miners flocking in from around the world. Clunes main street is wide and elegant, full of 19th-century shops with original store-fronts and distinctive verandahs - it has been the setting for many films including 'Mad Max' and 'Ned Kelly'.
