I wonder if your family was involved in logging. I believe it was a good
area for that. There was also gold in the area around foster but cant recall
exactly when. Now there are a number of dairy farms in the area. Many of my
husbands family who farmed on the bellarine peninsula moved across to the
south gipplsland area ( not around dollar though more on the flatter lands)
and I have found there was quite a lot of people from out west who did. I

foster has a small museum which may be able to help you.
Also found a book in the australian library which has ref to dollar if you
can get a copy ordered through your local one.
