Trove Tuesday – Gone to Byaduk

One of the Victorian towns named in last week’s Trove Tuesday post, What’s In A Name?, was Byaduk, home of the Harmans.  The Portland Guardian of May 17, 1945 found the following story from the Warrnambool Standard so amusing, they had to share it themselves.

I find with Byaduk’s name is that it is often spelt incorrectly as Byaduck.  If I am searching Trove for Byaduk, I have to search Byaduck too.

    and Queensland has Coochiemudlo Island.
    Round Byaduk there were plenty of Lutherans like the Linkes and the Hermanns.

    You are not the only Victorian awake right now. Plenty of weather discussion on Twitter:-
    Fawkner beacon has recorded wind gust of 143 kph – nearly Cat 2 hurricane strength.
