Just a short drive from Shepparton, is the pretty town of Murchison, once home to a tribe of 200 Aboriginals before they were devastated by European settlement. This town has many peak activities from paddle steamers and hotels servicing the passing gold rush community to a police staging post in the hunt for the bush ranger Ned Kelly, then a huge internment camp during WW2. Murchison made news in my lifetime as the site of a spectacular meteorite shower.
A quiet rural town now with dairy and wine the main industries in the area.
Murchison is situated on one of the loveliest stretches of the Goulburn River and is an interesting rural mix of the old and the new. I always enjoy a walk along the Goulburn River at Murchison.

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
