Milawa -Ouyen

Left Milawa in bleak weather conditions. By the time we reached Echuca the sky was blue and remained this way until we reached Mallee country. Then the sky turned black and heavy rain fell.

We travelled along the western side of Lake Tyrrell and saw the sign post to Kow Swamp..what a great name..we must visit this swamp one day!

I find mallee country most attractive with the wonderful Mallee Sallee eucalypts. Many varieties grow along the roadside. The distinction of different trunks and different overall tree shapes is notable.

We greeted the small township of Ultima for my SIL Joan who grew up on a property in this area.
