If you are ever in the area of NE Victoria and in particular at Tintaldra, then do stop by for tea and scones at the General Store.
|tea & scones served in an enamel mug and served on an enamel plate!|
The Tintaldra General Store, built in 1864, is the oldest commercial shop front business in the Upper Murray. The building has been classified by the National Trust as a fine example of the pioneer construction techniques using local timber utilised during this period of Australian history .
Built of natural materials available in the area at the time (such as River Red Gum and Stringy Bark) the store is a living history taking visitors back in time.
Once you enter the store be prepared to step back in time, but after a wander around do ask for tea and scones to be served "out the back" if the weather permits!
|no better view than here!|
|who wouldn't enjoy sitting here having a cuppa?|
Be rest assured, 86 year old Bette Walton - owner & operator of the store - will take good care of you!
