The Things that Unite:
Inquests into Chinese Deaths on the Bendigo Goldfields 1854-651
Talbot is situated between Clunes and Maryborough and is considered to be the southern gateway to the Central Victorian goldfields. It is a town worth exploring, less than two hours from Melbourne and 40 minutes from Ballarat.
Gold was first found in 1854 and a settlement began to emerge on the diggings which was then known as Back Creek. After the ‘Scandinavian’ rush of 1859 the present township began. Following a visit by the governor of Victoria in 1861 the name of the settlement was changed in honour of an English peer named Talbot.
