Sydney Flats - Victorian Goldfields
« on: Sunday 20 December 15 08:59 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone please tell me the location of "Sydney Flats" - am trying to locate it on a map?
Quite a few relatives have born in Sydney Flats, Bendigo.
Cheers

Hi

It looks like Sydney Flat is now called Woodvale.

Ashenique,

Australia has an excellent free newspaper archive called Trove (just Google "Trove newspaper" and go to the Advanced Search page).

There are hundreds of mentions of Sydney Flats in the Victorian papers.
