    Re the article, Dandenong & the No Good Damper Inn c 1840’s – Vicinity of Dandenong Town Centre, VIC:

    I am not the only one to wonder about the location of NO GOOD DAMPER and the author of the following has come to exactly the same conclusion as I did. The internet gives the distance from Melbourne to Dandenong as “36 min (35.0 km) via M1.”

    The No-Good-Damper hotel was located, apparently, near the present Springvale six-way junction where Dandenong and Centre roads converge. For those who are topographically inclined, the longitude is approximately 145.16 and latitude 37.95.

    The present-day Vale Hotel claims it as its forerunner. The original licence for the No Good Damper hotel was granted to Christian Ludolph Johannes De Villiers on April 20 1841, and it seems to have changed hands several times- to William Scott who also had the licence for the Squatters Rest in April 1842 (they may have been the same hotel), and then to a Robert McGhee in May 1844 who may or may not have been the same person as Robert McKee who held the licence in April 1845.
