365 Project | December 2018

Waratah, wildflowers, sunshine, rain, roosters, snakes….. This is the first month of Summer and the December edition of my 365 Project.

 
The place is just so scenically beautiful, it’s quiet but it’s got a continual rustle of the river in the background. It’s full of the sounds of nature. Each morning at the moment, the currawongs are flocking. There are thrushes here in spring, calling and setting up their territories. The white cockies come and go, and the black cockies sit in the wattle tree just outside the window.

Entally Estate provided the training grounds for the 1884 Melbourne Cup winner Malua, a racehorse born and bred at the Georgian homestead Calstock in the foothills of the Great Western Tiers.

The Entally Historic Site consists of Entally House and various outbuildings, including Australia’s oldest Conservatory (shown above). The Estate encompasses grand, parklike surroundings with magnificent gardens and a vineyard, Regency furnishings, fine silverware, horse-drawn coaches and agricultural implements.

Fed by the Fisher River, Lake Mackenzie is a high mountain lake (1,114m) and is located in the Central Highlands of Tasmania. The area surrounding the lake was affected by the January 2016 bushfires.

Below you see some endemic Waratah (Telopea truncata), pencil pines (Athrotaxis cupressoides) and the Lake Mackenzie dam wall. Quite a juxtaposition with the ancient pine skeletons and natural beauty of the Waratah against the industrial structure of the dam.

During the 1850s the settlement of Deloraine was so slow that the government started selling land for £1 an acre. This resulted in a rapid increase in the local population.
