"Not just a small town"

Rosedale is located 2 hours from East Melbourne, you will pass through it when going between Traralgon and Sale. It has been well known for one of the bakery's which the owner has just opened a new store across the road. There is a quilting shop my mother absolutely loves going into, there are tea rooms and of course the vintage stalls.

There is so much to look along the walking trail, look through the national park, many heritage listed properties and of course the life size statue of the Melbourne cup winner Patrobus on the main street.

The recent opening of Smokehouse 81 has brought some new life to the town as slow cooked meat is just delicious! The smell is amazing and if you can't get in to a table, they do take away too.

There is still land selling, in town and just out, it is certainly a town that has a lot going for it that is unnoticed if you just drive through it. Next time you go through, stop in at the bakery and check out the wood carvings that Rex has.
