Central Tilba


I learnt about Tilba from blog friends so added it to my list of places to visit one day.  This was the day.  It is an historic town with its streetscape of Victorian timber buildings preserved.  Its heyday was during the gold era, then moving onto dairy and today is a quaint tourist town. The diary industry lives on in delicious Tilba Cheese but it is Tilba in brand only, after takeover by an international food giant it is now made in a factory in Melbourne!

  1. Didn't know that the cheese isn't locally made anymore, but it's still excellent. Love the smoked cheese.

  2. It is a shame about the small cheese makers getting taken over all over the country. Wine growers/makers too. Sounds a nice little town. More photos please.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
Musing:
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
