This week in the Tarrangower Times

Supermoon, Super Weekend

After what seemed like weeks of cold, grey, wet weather, the skies cleared and the sun shone for the last weekend of Maldon in Winter and the Victorian school holidays. The town was packed for the monthly market, the steam train for kids weekend, the art show, the bonfire and fireworks, the fasion parade and other Maldon in Winter events.

House & Scrub Fires

A house in Joyces Creek burned to the ground on Monday 14 July. A unit from Maldon CFA attended. And a scrub fire was reported after a burn-off escaped on Crown Land near Derby Hill.
