Tarana



Just down the road from Rydal, via the locality of Sodwalls, is the next small town Tarana. It's another railway town and the junction of a short 24km branch line to Oberon.  An active railway historical society is working on getting this line opened again as a tourist attraction.   It would be a nice ride, the farmland around here is lovely.

See and learn more of Tarana over at 100 towns.

  1. The rolling, wooded hills are certainly lovely.

  2. I think it's a great shame there are so many defunct railway journeys around the countryside! I applaud the volunteers bringing them back to life - but they wouldn't have to do that if the governments that got rid of them had had any foresight!

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.

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.

Musing:
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."

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
