Maldon's Living Treasures

As the updated brochure at the Maldon Visitor Information Centre states, within the Maldon town boundaries there are Box trees approaching 400 years in age. 

There are at least 25 trees older than 200 years. Wendy French, as a member of the Maldon Urban Landcare (MULGA), did the research in 2010 and the brochure is dedicated to her memory.  

Burglary in Maldon

Detectives from Kyneton are investigating a burglary and theft which occurred in Boundary Road on Monday morning. 

Cash, personal items, a Nissan Patrol vehicle, two motorcycles, tools, a chainsaw, a trailer and, most disturbingly, two firearms from the premises and a shed on the property were stolen. Crime Scene Service officers from Bendigo have examined the scene for further evidence.
