The photos below should demonstrate exactly why all sensible dogs were taking refuge with their owners, at home!
The fact it was a Sunday and everything was closed emphasised the sense of eerie desertion!
Seems if I want to enjoy all this charming little town on the Sunraysia highway between Ballarat and Mildura, as well as meeting some local dogs,I will have to return on a sunny weekday!
There is quite a bit to enjoy and see in better weather....and hopefully, this historic and important service town really does bustle with friendly vibrancy on days when shops are open. Sadly, on Sunday we could not find a single place to grab a quick coffee to break our journey.
We so wanted to try those prize winning Vanilla slices!
Two things still highly commend our brief visit: spotless public ammeities and easy parking!
