This is Powelly Pub in the bush. Powelltown Football Club was there as well as another sawmill. We stopped and talked with a local council worker who told us the tall straight trees were Mountain Ash. He spoke of using Spotted Gum for bridges as it was better than red gum and mountain ash. Spotted Gum was flexible and would give and bend easily. Spotted a donkey. Around Hacketts Creek found peaches, olives and apples growing. Passed by Fir Tree Creek. Gladysdale was a very small town area which had a school. Went over Slaty Creek and saw a shed stacked high with timber possibly for use in winter. Saw Herefords. Apples were $2 a bag by the roadside.Next came civilisation at Yarra Junction.
