Manildra flour mill

Here we are at the flour mill at Manildra. It's a large complex, as I said yesterday, the largest mill in Australia. I was surprised at how small the town itself is, just 400-500 people.


  1. Then they are probably pleased they have this mill. Hope it is not too automated ...

  2. This is a gorgeous industrial shot!

  3. I love the repeating lines of the silos. I imagine that there is a railroad there and that they complex is quite large.

  4. Yes there is much more to the complex including a railway, older style silos and an administration buildings. I searched the web to see how many people are employed there but couldn't get a definitive answer but it suggests around 200. I was fascinated because the town itself is tiny so people must be drawn in from the surrounding area ... perhaps they get a five minute traffic jam at knockoff time.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
