Ailsa at Where’s my backpack? has a blog full of beautiful photos, and each week she has a theme. This week’s theme is Hills. Head over there to see what other people are sharing ~ some stunning photos there. You might even like to take part too. Hills is a theme that fits in well with my recent travels.
The first time we went to Menindee I was struck at how flat most of the journey was. Once we charged over the small hills around Melbourne, the remnants of the Great Dividing Range, there was barely a ripple.
Most of the country flat and you feel that you could travel forever.
After we left Menindee we slowly travelled beside the Murray River, through Mildura, Robinvale, Echuca and Rutherglen. It wasn’t until we crossed the Hume Freeway, the main north/south road between Sydney and Melbourne, that we began to see hills, because we had come back to the Great Dividing Range. The windy road into Beechworth was delightful and the caravan park, Beechworth Holiday Park, is nestled in a valley.
Then we were off to stay with friends in Merrijig, a little town halfway between Mansfield and Mt Buller, an area that is known as the High Country. They have a farm that looks out towards Mt Buller and Timbertop. It’s spectacular countryside that is even more serene because all the rain has turned the grass emerald green. So these are my hills…..
