Australia Day Walk

 Our day to celebrate, was a walk along the Warburton Trail.
We are babysitting Harvey for a few days and as he is molting at the moment, covered the car with sheets. Came home and vacuumed the back of it.


 The trail follows the old rail line, the platform for Wandin Station is still there.
The trail was inundated with bike riders and a few walkers. We walked 3 kms and stopped at the Railway Carriage Cafe for lunch.

 Common weeds were lining the edges of the trail and I found them interesting, even though I don't know their horticultural names.
Queen Anne's Lace
 Bracken
 Wild Dark Purple Thistle

 Common Dandelion

 Native grass
 Pink Thistle

 Buttercup
A lovely day out in the fresh air.

  1. A lovely day for the walk. I bet Harvey is exhausted now. Thanks for the photos.

  2. There are also a lot of fruit trees in other parts, I like to think of travellers throwing their apple cores out of the window of the train.
