First to the 'village' - Sadly the shops and the ceramics are closed
these days, but if anyone were to make it to Majorca, our property is
the cream and French blue weatherboard cottage at the peak of the hill
in town, surrounded by the remaining large trees in the town area. You
are most welcome to visit; my wife's print studio is always open. It is
an interesting place, if only to see what damage can be done to an
environment in an inordinately short period, and of late, how drought
devastates degraded land. Still...

By the way, your address, Majorca, Victoria, Australia, continues to
me. I've been to Maryborough, Maldon, etc., but had to google for this,
may help out others interested:
'The historic village of Majorca, ten minutes from Maryborough is
amongst the remains of gold mining heritage. It is hard to imagine the
street of Majorca bustling with goldminers and well supplied with stores
varieties. Today a general store, the old 'Majorca Store' and ceramics
converted Majorca Post Office provide the only commercial venues in this
delightful little village. Host farm accommodation and horse riding are
available and the area is well suited to cyclists.
A tranquil atmosphere settles around this beautiful mural landscape,
fishing and bushwalking through the Majorca forest freely available.'
