You can still smell the sweat and feel hard work that has gone into the property as you wander around the Seaton Farm. Farming in the late depression years was challenging. The Seatons worked the land, built the structures, created dams and these marvellous fences.
This property is a credit to the Seatons and their endurance, courage and tirelessness.
The property is part of the Weddin Mountains National Park (near Grenfell NSW), probably more famous for Ben Hall’s Cave. The walk to the farm and its surrounds captured my imagination more than the cave.

The Geelong Powerhouse has not generated power for over 45 years and sits abandoned. Well, nearly abandoned, except for an awesome display of legal street art from 220 plus artists. It is worth noting the building is some 6 stories high and covers 3000 square metres.
Here are my favourites ……

This accommodation was comfortably sitting on the beach at Dunk Island looking south across to the more exclusive Bedarra Island. Not a bad way to spend some time away from it all on a near deserted tropical island!

Hot, dry and remote, you imagine Bourke in western NSW to be desolate and dusty. Driving in from Cobar I glanced to the right and spied this great roadside display. It offered a very warm and inviting welcome and was somewhat unexpected.
Wheelbarrows, bathtubs and washing machine barrels, overflowing with marigolds defied the images I had in my mind about this far western town in NSW.
I just love pride of place no matter where you are.

Recently on my way to Sydney I stayed overnight in Uralla, New South Wales. Even in mid March, the morning air was crisp and perfect for a brisk walk, an opportunity to take in the town before heading further south.
The town is neat and well cared for. People’s gardens reflect a pride of place.
The best place however was Dan’s. Down a quiet street I first saw this marvellous gate. Someone, I did not know who at the time, had made it an artistic floral piece. The curious kelpies barked at my approach. It was then I spied a yard full of sculptures and curios. Dan, the owner approached and I introduced myself. I stood and chatted briefly and marvelled at his creativity.
Such a talent tucked away in the New England town of Uralla.
