Talbot, Victoria

In an imaginary game at Talbot yesterday, the home team defeated VIS by just two points. Scoreboard Pressure thanks the management of Talbot Recreation Reserve for leaving the scoreboard unlocked, making our research all the more fruitful.

Talbot is about 40 minutes north of Ballarat and about 15 minutes south of Maryborough. Gold- mining country in the 19th century. Wathaurong and Djaddjawurung country forever and a day.

The Hawks’ football and netball teams play in the Maryborough Castlemaine league against Trentham,  Campbells Creek and many others.


In 2012 our work experience boy Michael Wearne visited Talbot… whatever became of him?
