On the way over to Melbourne we stayed overnight at a dog friendly place called Old Dadswell Town on the Western Highway. It is between Horsham and Stawell. I was carrying the 5x7 Cambo monorail to begin to photograph the silos along the Wimmera section of the Western Highway, as I was hoping for some overcast skies. It was not to be. The weather was bright, sunny and hot. I made no photos of the silos.
I did manage to take some snapshots at Old Dadswell Town in the late afternoon as a form of consolation:
Old Dadswell Town is a quirky place full of collected junk, and it refers back to the Australia of the 1950s, the Mad Max movies and the tourist pioneer theme towns. We had the place to ourselves on this occasion.
I took some more snapshots early in the morning before we left Old Dadswell Town to catch the Queenscliff ferry to Sorrento to stay at Safety Beach for several days.
The owners have a whacky sense of humour that is quite engaging.
The Grampians form a backdrop to the scrub around Old Dadswell Town, but I've never really bothered to explore them photographically.
