About an hour and fifteen minutes drive…

…north-west of Geelong is Ballarat.

 

Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree was the site of

all rowing events during the

1956 Melbourne,

Olympic Games.

Signs found in…

Arras,

France.

An evening at the Moulin Rouge is

worth every cent.

Finally a sign that indicates the

Winter Olympics

were held at Whistler.

And a similar sign indicating

the site of the 1956 Rowing

at Ballarat, west of Melbourne.

Recently I visited a previously unheard of town called

Dunnstown

Lunch at the local ‘Watering Hole’

Although no locals were frequenting the bar for lunch

 

Dunnstown and its Shamrock Hotel are not all that far from Ballarat

where some of our best gold deposits were discovered in the 1850s.

The inter dominion is Harness Racing’s

answer to the Melbourne Cup.

The caption below this image reads…

 

‘A tribute to

Donald F. Murphy whose forsight

has made Dunnstown

The Harness Horse Capital’

Walks.


Walkers alongside Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree.  

Lake Wendouree was the site of all rowing events

during the 1956 Melbourne Olympics.

The walk from Eastern Beach car park.

At the top of the hill, you are only a five minute walk

from Geelong’s Central Business District.

The reverse view down to the Promenade.

Nearing the top of Lucerne’s

Mt Rigi.

The walk in context.

 

 

Walking in Schoenbrunn Palace gardens

 

 

 

 

We didn’t have the time or energy

to walk all to the back of the garden.

A few years ago while out on a photography drive

I came across the small town of

Corindhap and its Avenue of Honour.

Cypress and Radiata Pines were planted

after World War I to create the

Corindhap Avenue of Honour.

Upon their demise they were

re purposed and the Avenue lives on

in the form of street art.
