Lethbridge VIC


Postcode: 3332

Lethbridge is a small rural township outside Geelong, Victoria, Australia of about 1,000 people. Bluestone from Lethbridge quarries was used to build several significant buildings in Melbourne, including the steps to the Parliament House.

It has a primary school, Uniting Church and a Catholic church, a sports facility (with two football ovals and a tennis court), a town hall, a CFA, cake shop and a general store. The Overland service between Melbourne and Adelaide passes through three times a week, despite the railway station being long since disused. It is also used by grain and freight trains travelling between Geelong and Ballarat.

Peter Lalor, the leader of the Eureka Stockade rebellion, hid overnight in Lethbridge while fleeing from Ballarat to Geelong in November 1854.
