The Lost Boys run

Spent a few hours running through Castlemaine and Newstead.  Finally dropped into the “Lost Boys” memorial park on the outskirts of Daylesford.  The 3 boys, aged 6, 5 and 4, went missing in 1867 while looking for wild goats.  Their bodies were found 2 1/2 months later.  This memorial park is at the location they left from and there’s another near where they were found.
