Linton, Victoria

Linton is a little goldfields town (population 580), about 30 kilomentres west of Ballarat (population 100, 000), a very big goldfields town.

This year The Carngham Linton FNC celebrates its 50th year as an amalgamated club.The senior footy team has won 17 premieships in that time, the last one a decade ago. Pretty good effort.

Permanent sightscreen at the ‘town’ end of the ground.

There’s no longer a railway to Linton (it’s a bike path, a rail trail), but there’s still The Railway Hotel. Blues jam first Sunday of each month is highly recommended.
