“It’s quaint, that’s probably the best word to describe it.”
The small town of Dingee (population: 206) in Central Victoria has all the essentials, and not much more. There’s a pub, church, bush nurse, general store, and a public library.
Historically known as a dairy farming community, severe drought and flood have meant many of the farms have packed up and moved on.
“That’s where the library’s great. People will come in here just to get away from all their angst and worry about it.”
Discover why the public library in Dingee, which is located in an historic railway station, is giving meaning to the lives of residents in the town.
