Legendry former Victoria Police detective Ron Iddles and his family are honoured with a mural at Rochester.

IF you are like good cop Ron Iddles, and you want the truth, come and see his real story in real life at Iddles Lane at Rochester.

Iddles Mural is a piece of public art dedicated to the Iddles family and was officially opened to the public in March 2020. Recently Ron has been featured on Homicide: With Ron Iddles on Channel Seven on Sunday nights.

Rochester is a small town 25 minutes from Echuca on the Northern Highway and it’s the home to magnificent silo art on the Grain Corp silos.

The town offers a place to visit for day trips or even stay longer at the local motel, B&B or caravan parks. The Rochester Riverside Caravan Park is situated along the banks of the Campaspe River, which runs through the centre of town.

Glenda Nichol, local resident and president of the Rochester Business Network welcomes all regional Victorian’s to come and find our hidden gems.

“Rochester is small but with so much to offer,” she said.

“We have great hotels, great cafes and amazing art. The silos, the murals and of course the Iddles Lane mural next to the Shamrock Hotel has to be seen to be believed.

“The town is family friendly where kids can ride bikes and visit the bakery or for our grey nomads the chance to visit the Quilting Patch or the Rochester Sports Museum means there is something for everyone.”

If you are like Ron and you want to find out the real truth, come and discover Rochester whilst also getting the chance to read his real story, in real life, on the wall in Iddles Lane, Rochester.
