We visited our niece in the countryside in Darnum a small town in West Gippsland, Victoria.
It's located 110 kilometres east of Melbourne, in the Shire of Baw Baw. At the 2006 census the town and surrounding area had a population of 598.
The Post Office opened on 1 December 1882 after the arrival of the railway.
Darnum was originally a timber producing town and boasts a large stump in memory of the original timber mill's owner Clarrie Weir. Today the principal industry is dairy farming, with Fonterra, previously Bonlac Foods, operating a milk processing plant just north of town. Darnum is also home to the Darnum Musical Village, a collection of musical instruments, where visitors can experience playing some of the exhibits as tour guides explain the history of different pieces.
