We set off down the Midlands Highway heading for Healesville. The countryside around here is very fertile and productive.

photo of road sign We passed an unusual road sign. I don't think it means "Beware, kangaroos playing leap wombat ahead". It believe it signifies that the story of "The Hare and the Tortoise" is a European corruption of the original story of "The Kangaroo and the Wombat". As you can see, the wombat won the race because the kangaroo, an animal of very little brain, ran the wrong way.

The caravan park, selected for its dump station, turned out to be quite pretty but full of kids and ibises. Its the last week of school holidays so we've been remarkably lucky to miss the crowds so far.
