Noojee, Victoria November 2015
Next stop was Tooronga Falls, about 10 minutes out of town. We decided to stop for lunch first, and found a pleasant spot to sit with rustic picnic tables and chairs. Eventually, we packed up and headed out to the falls, approx 2km round trip. In Hindsight we should have gotten there earlier for some long exposure shots, before it was so well lit with sunshine. Unfortunately my knee was aching so badly I couldn’t climb all the way to the top, disappointing, but sometimes that’s a fact of life. Still the bottom falls were quite pretty, we need to come back early in the morning!
Next Stop was the Noojee Historical Centre, complete with vintage train, this is a fairly new addition to the township, but it has quite a good display.
Getting back closer to town we went down the water wheel walk (water wheel is non functioning), along the banks of the Latrobe River, to the strands of live music from the Toolshed Bar (Local Pub), of course we stopped in for a nice cold beer, a chat to some locals and wonderful live music. The outside veranda has wonderful views overlooking the flats and river, they even have their own friendly kookaburras; who were a no show for us :-( The pub itself is quite interesting and full of quirky items (no Kermit is not up the wrong way, he was hanging from the roof).
