Bacchus Marsh – Stations of the Cross & picnic


Friday March 30, 2012

It was a fantastic day to visit the Stations of the Cross near Bacchus Marsh Melways ref: Map 334 H8. Each station has a beautiful large stone depiction of Christ’s suffering. There is also a chapel at the top of the hill. On the way back down to the car park we could view the numerous shrines that have been erected from different countries around the world.

Afterwards, we visited Maddingley Park in Bacchus Marsh for a picnic — there is a fantastic wooden adventure playground at the park! Melways ref: Map 333 H9. Everyone had a great day.

    1. I have been told they have a stations of the cross on Good Friday in costume around the more than life size stations around the shrine. I think that you can turn up and they will give you costumes to wear to be in the crowd, however I do not know what time this is on. They probably have a 3pm Solemn ceremony as well in the large chapel.
