Trivia Night - Sherlock Holmes Inn

415 Collins Street, Melbourne

Join us for a trivia night at the Sherlock Holmes on Collins Street which is a British styled pub located on Collins Street.

The trivia night is hosted by comedian Janet McLeod and offers winners $50 food & drink vouchers as well as quiz rounds for Jugs of Beer, Bottles of wine, etc.She is a well respected comedian and has a way of getting you involved in the night.

The Sherlock Holmes opened in 1985 and the hostelry has been extremely well received, as have its comestibles, ales wines and spirits. So much so that the worst criticism has been that the establishment is too small for the large numbers of discerning citizens who wish to avail themselves of the sundry attractions which this unique tavern affords.

Here is a home for the aficionados of the works of the eneffable Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, where the friendly shades of Dr Watson, Professor Moriarty (a changed man since he went over the falls) and the Stradivarius-playing, opium-smoking genius himself, the Great Detective, await your pleasure.

So meet Nicole at the reserved table for a fun trivia night.

Day Trip to Maldon on Victorian Goldfields Railway

PTV Hub, Southern Cross Station

Step back in time on the Victorian Goldfields Railway.

Today we will be travelling to the Historic town of Maldon on the Victorian Goldfields Railway's Steam train travelling first class. The town itself was once a thriving metropolis. Maldon's reputation as a picturesque historic town, known for its intact 19th century town centre is well established.

One of the most important late 19th and early 20th century townscapes in Victoria, Maldon began as a gold rush town in 1854 with the discovery of alluvial gold at the base of Mt Tarrangower. It developed as an industrial mining town during the later years of the 1800s. As one of Victoria's richest quartz mining centers, various mines at various times recorded the highest returns in the State. Mining declined in the first years of the 20th century, the last mine of the era closed in 1926, and the town's population and fortunes similarly declined....

We will have 2 hours in Maldon for Lunch at The Kangaroo Hotel before heading back to Castlemaine on the train. Lunch at own expense,

Meet Nicole at the PTV Hub.
