My first post on my blog is on my recent trip to Heathcote. Having a spare day in Melbourne and popping into the Yarra on numerous occasions, as well as visiting Nagambie and Geelong previously, it was time to see what some of the other Victorian wine regions had to show. And man was I impressed!!
The area itself was a typical Australian bush type setting and not too dissimilar to the Hunter Valley in some respects. The roads were lined with Eucaplypts and wineries often tucked away up dirt tracks.
On the way in we came across this bridge. It was good enough to stop and take a photo. I wouldn't have the faintest idea about its history but it was built in 1867! Timber boards are still used and it's construction was ahead of it's time - considering what we see being used as functional now!
