See more ...
After wondering at the lack of activity in the town we double-checked the date - and realised we were a day early! Hah!
It seemed a shame to waste our picnic, so we headed out of town and made a stop at Broadford to show Erin and Vaughan the straw boiler. We also inspected a monument and signage across the road, which commemorated the early explorers Hume and Hovell.
Given we were in the mood for more exploring, we headed out of town toward Seymour. It was picnic time when we arrived and this tank caught our eye, so we lunched in the park beside it. There were magpies and wattle birds nearby - and we enjoyed watching the world go by for a bit. I've done a bit of research and it seems there is a fair bit to see at Seymour, so we'll have to make another visit. Praps we could picnic next to the steam train next time?!
