Chiltern is quite an historical town. It has its foundation in the gold rush period and the Post Office was established in 1859. Check out Wikipedia for more history of the town. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiltern,_Victoria as well as http://www.chilternvic.com/visitor_activities/activities_historic-buildings.html for the historical buildings under National Trust.
As my father was a printer by trade and my daughter has worked in a printing office until very recently, I am always interested in anything associated with the printing industry. The Federal Standard Office is the place were the Federal Standard Newspaper was printed. Unfortunately the museum is only open once a month and it did not coincide with our visit.

We passed a couple of churches in the car while driving through Chiltern. I decided to check them out on one of my morning walks. Both churches are a little bit outside of the center of town. This is the Chiltern Anglican Church.
I was thinking of making a separate blog entry for the Chiltern Railway Station. But it fits in well with the historical building title. The railway station is still very much in use today and many trains stop here. I believe it is used by commuters to go into Albury.
