‘Eaglehawk Girl’ is a memoir of my free range childhood in Eaglehawk, Victoria, Australia in the 1950s.
Brolga Publishing and I launched it on Wednesday, October 24.
It’s available from Australian bookshops, Booktopia and will be available on US Amazon in a few weeks.
The content fits into Eaglehawk Childhood here on the blog.
The book is googlable under the title.
For some reason the image of the cover is lying down. Sorry.
Delightful stories of Liz freeranging around Eaglehawk and swimming everywhere she could

Hi Liz , Eaglehawk Girl has done the rounds of our family. We all loved the book .It brought back so many memories for us and our free range growing up in the Borough, Eaglehawk in the 70’s. The tram trip into Bendigo, Eliades fish and chip shop ( 5c for the biggest bag of chips you have ever seen), Lake Neanger , playing in the bush and around the sand dumps and old mining equipment and going ferreting for rabbits. Like you we were heavily into swimming. Eaglehawk had its own club during our time and the pool tiled and water filtered, although not heated, so freezing cold at club time trials in early October. We remember swimming carnivals at places like Bendigo, Maryborough, Echuca, Tongala , Rochester, Bendigo East and Shepparton (the latter 2 still had sand bottoms in our day). I was interested in where the old Cal Gully pool was , it was gone by our time. Great work and thank you.
