Follow the whiskey trail

HISTORY buffs will be captivated with the tales of the south-west’s illicit whiskey-making past during a whiskey trail ‘tag along’ tour this weekend.

By Staff Writer

The ‘northern leg’ of the trail will be held this Sunday, May 19 and will cover areas such as Warrnambool, Koroit and Woodford.

The tour will start at the Mortlake Cemetery at 10am before heading to the intersection of Connewarren Lane and Thorburns Lane where another plaque is situated.

From there participants will travel to Woodford to look at a plaque in Merri Street.

After a short talk the group will head to the site of the former Koroit Racecourse where another plaque will be discovered.

The Warrnambool Cemetery is next on the tour – and a visit to the gravesite of ‘Whiskey Tom’ Delaney.

The tour will conclude at the Old Warrnambool Gaol (now the TAFE site) in Gillies Street before members will enjoy lunch at the Warrnambool RSL.
