ST ANDREWS

St Andrews is a town in Victoria, Australia, which is 36 km north-east from Melbourne's city centre. St Andrews has a population of about 1600 people and is well known for its alternative market which is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. It also has a hotel, general store, school, bakery, CFA, a community centre and of course St Andrew's Church. It's always lovely to drive there and the countryside around it is quite beautiful with some nice unspoilt bushland, as well as lush farmland and vineyards.

  1. I love country markets. The fruit and veg are fresher than in shops and the craft markets are more.. crafty.

  2. Such a quaint little church. Cute! I like your description of the "alternative market". Around here we call them farmer's markets where fresh produce from the local farms are sold. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I don't think I have ever been to St Andews Nick. I love the second photo of the scratchy path wending through the gum trees.
