I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.

Elaine Cricket Club
Elaine, Geelong - A dream comes true!
Elaine is a country town in Victoria, Australia, located on the Midland Highway between Geelong and Ballarat. In 2006, according to the census, Elaine and the surrounding area had a population of 677.
In this article I want to highlight some of the small businesses that are alive and well in Elaine. If you're out on the road driving between Geelong and Ballarat, pop into the Railway Hotel, Elaine, for a meal or drink. Or stop and buy a pie and hot cuppa at the milk bar. The country town of Elaine appreciates your patronage.
This is a "feel good" article as it describes the decline and the rise of a small country town.
Railway Hotel Elaine
Located on the Midland Highway, Elaine, the Railway Hotel puts on meals 7 days a week. As well as meals, there is accomodation and you will find a friendly country hotel that is family owned and operated. Come to the Railway Hotel, Elaine and try their steak with garlic sauce.
Beverley has the fires going to warm you up during autumn and winter, while you dine on some good wholesome home cooked meals. Phone Beverley Townsend for reservations or bookings on 0353415645.
Elaine Cricket Club is a member of the Ballarat Cricket Association (Victoria, Australia), fielding Seniors Division 5 and Juniors Under 14 sides. They also run a Milo Cricket program for Under 12 cricketers.
