The district of Sedgwick, south-west of Emu Creek and adjoining Axe Creek, was named Upper Emu Creek until 1901. Freehold land was granted here in 1854 and in 1865 an acre of land and 60 pounds was set aside to build a common school. There was only one mine in the district – the Great Eastern, now closed along with its namesake,

As you head back towards Bendigo, the narrow valley of Mandurang sits alongside Sheepwash Creek to the north, and to the east through pretty Tannery Lane. The tannery the road is named after closed in 1904 but once employed over 30. The name Mandurang is thought to be derived from the Aboriginal word meaning black cicada and the area was settled in the 1860s for gold and also for timber cutters who harvested trees from what is now the State Forest. Jean De Ravin, a vintner who opened cellars in 1866, lived on what is one of four wineries in the immediate area – the pretty Chateau Dore. Today, this picturesque part of the city is enjoyed by hobby farmers, horse enthusiasts and residents who like having the city at their fingertips whilst still enjoying the beauty, space and freedom of rural living. The proximity to Bendigo has always been a solid drawcard to the area, and a short drive via Harcourt brings you to the Calder Freeway and on to Melbourne with minimal effort, ensuring this is a stunning piece of Bendigo that offers the best of both worlds.

five generations. Like so many family farms over the past few decades it has had to grow and evolve with the dramatically changing nature of farming life. Part of this change has seen Brian sell some of his land as 20-acre lifestyle parcels to Melbourne migrants such as Andrew and Janet Purton.

You get the sense from talking to Brian and Andrew the Axe Creek residents enjoy their community and lifestyle. Economic peaks and troughs, such as the one we are experiencing now, come and go, but a lifestyle that allows you to be surrounded by family and a good community – now that’s the golden fleece.

Andrew Purton grew up in Brighton, his wife Janet is also a Melbourne native, they are both busy professionals at Bendigo Bank and parents to two active young boys, Joshua aged five, and Lachlan three. I ask Andrew the obvious, “What brings a Brighton boy to Axe Creek?” Andrew says he has always been a bit of a frustrated farmer. He would have gone the full rural mile and bought a farm but Janet, perhaps understanding the demands of raising two little boys while they both manage busy professional careers was hesitant. “So, we compromised on 20 acres,” shrugs Andrew. “It’s great, we have landscaped around the house, we have a pool, garden and green lawn all irrigated from the dams; we have huge water tanks. Water isn’t a problem.” Andrew has made a career from property, so he did his ‘due diligence’ before deciding which part of rural Victoria he wanted to settle his family. He said, “I like

Mynette’s new Bluebird Patisserie brings a little bit of French indulgence to Bendigo, the charming historical shopfront is perfect for the beautiful displays of petite cream eclairs, tarts, roulades and cakes. “Yes, when the building became available, I grabbed it,” said Mynette, it was no doubt perfect for her vision. Agreeing the decision to proceed with the opening of Bluebird Patisserie in what seemed like the dead of COVID-19 lockdown on 1 September was a brave one. “We had it in the pipeline for some time and I had been committed since last October,” she said. Fortunately, the brave decision was a good one and the Patisserie, as much a feast for the eyes as it is the palette, is proving popular. The architecture on Bull Street is also the perfect charming backdrop to the high-teas and lunches on offer at Café Essence. “We are the only place in Bendigo to go for High Tea now,” says Mynette. Having supplied high teas at the historical Villa Fortuna, Mynette is well versed in feasting our eyes and tastebuds. “Yes, the pastries are naughty, but they are only little,” she says.

My experience with the team from McKean McGregor was exceptional across a number of properties I inspected. Their knowledge on market growth and performing areas was excellent. They answered all my questions and gave quality information for investment properties. The purchasing process of The Heath was outstanding, both the sales and property management consultants were excellent with their professional conduct and business acumen. The management of tenanting the property was again the best I have experienced. They achieved better than expected and within 48 hours of listing and followed up with all the appropriate documents and reference required. I couldn’t recommend a more professional and helpful company. Thank you McKean McGregor. TONY - PURCHASER
