This stone cottage at Maldon is a great example of goldfields architecture. A functional cottage which once was a commonplace style of building but now has a charm that embodies the heritage of Maldon.

This is a piece of art created by Artificial Intelligence.
The original was a photograph taken of the Penny School which has had a process called style transfer applied
The AI model has learned how to produce art in the style of several gothic artists and then applied that style to create a completely new artwork.
The picture above is the result of the application of AI style transfer to a photograph of an iconic Maldon building.
The BSA Motorcycles Owners association operates the All British Motorcycle Rally each year and as part of the rally rides from Newstead to Maldon for the day.
This year over 1000 people attended and a sea of British motorcycles, mostly historical and vintage, filled Main Street at Maldon.
Today people stopped to view the massive display of bikes. Riders stopped in at local cafes and the bakery for lunch. Visitors not expecting the rally looked bemused or amazed at how many motorcycles filled the street.
The BSA Motorcycle Owners Association has run the All British Rally annually since 1977. This years event is to be held again in Newstead, Victoria, at the Old Newstead Racecourse. Owners and aficionados of British Motorcycles, their families and friends are all welcome at the All British Rally.
Here are some photos from the event today. Thanks to everyone who attended and brought Main Street to life.
We look forward to the return of the All British Rally to Maldon next year. It was a great event. Riders and visitors alike enjoyed the display of motorcycles and meeting old and new friends. A great day for everyone.

The Maldon Orchestra is reimagining the music of the Victorian Gold Rush.
Back to Porcupine Flat is a composition about some miners heading back to Porcupine Flat just outside of Maldon to continue digging for gold. The diggers had a tough time on the goldfields and despite the possible reward of finding gold there were also many difficulties faced by the miners.
Back to Porcupine Flat is a tribute to the miners who kept going back to work their claims as hard as life on the goldfields was.
