Ned Kelly is a legendary Australian bushranger and one of our most iconic historical figures. He spent a good portion of his life in Beechworth Gaol and on the run in the surrounding bushland. Bridge Road Brewery are located in Beechworth and they pay tribute to Ned Kelly and his fighting spirit through the use of his famous armour in their logo and on the label of their most popular beer “Beechworth Pale”. Here I am in the town of Glenrowan just metres from where the Kelly Gang were killed/captured. I’m going to drink this beer in a toast to Ned Kelly and the fascinating history that comes from this part of Victoria! Cheers @nakedned 🍻🍻
I just got back home from a fantastic long weekend spent riding bikes and hanging out with friends in the Victoria high country. I'm used to this place in winter, but in summer it is equally spectacular. This photo is a sunset from the summit of Mt Buller.

The hut that some say put all the other huts on the map (in terms of tourism). Craig’s Hut is located on Clear Hills near Mt.Stirling in the Alpine National Park in Victoria, and was built especially for the film “The Man from Snowy River in 1981.
It was called Craig’s after the lead actor, Jim Craig (played by Tom Burlinson) and re-used in the sequel. On 11 December 2006 the Craig’s Hut was burnt down by wild fire. Hut has since been rebuilt by volunteers.
Travelling from Mansfield along the Mt.Buller Rd towards Mt.Buller turn left at the Stirling Rd which begins at the toll gate at Mirimbah. This leads to the Telephone Box Junction – entrance to the Circuit Road. The entrance to the Circuit Road via Stirling Rd is approximately 32 km from Mansfield. Drive along the Circuit Road for about 20 km and then turn right to the Clear Hills Track. The Circuit Road is suitable for 2WD cars but the Clear Hills Track is 4WD track only.
It’s only 1.2 km long so you can walk to the Craig’s Hut if you do not want to drive on Clear Hills Track. The Circuit Road is closed during snow season – first weekend of June till beginning of November. #craigshut .

“Twisted Snow Gums”
⭐️ - Nominee :: 5th Annual Fine Art Photography Awards
During a trip to Mt Buffalo some thick fog rolled in across the plateau around midday so I went exploring through some bush tracks to see what I could find. The snow gums I came across looked incredibly colourful with the soft diffused background lighting so I tried shooting a few different locations and settled on this one as my favourite.
So proud that my small #victorianhighcountry community of Jamieson was able to carry the flag of the 7th DIV.A.A.S.C today, (under which my Grandfather Maxwell Haslam Rogers served in WWII) during our #anzacday march through town ... as sadly there is no one left to carry it in the Melbourne ANZAC parade.
As one of the #ratsoftobruk my Grandpa Max did his country proud.
The Rats of Tobruk were soldiers of the garrison that held the Libyan port of Tobruk against the Afrika Corps, during and after the Siege of Tobruk in World War II. The siege started on 10 April 1941 and was relieved at the end of November when Australian forces were withdrawn. The port and its perimeter continued to be held by the Allies until its surrender on 21 June 1942. .
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them."
~ The Ode comes from For the Fallen, a poem by the English poet and writer Laurence Binyon #lestweforget#anzac#aussie#newzealand#soldiers#australiansoldiers#nzsoldier#neverforgotten#jamiesonvalley#livelikeyourdying#proud
To the four airmen that perished on Mt Torbreck 79 years ago and to each and every other Defence Force personal that paid the ultimate sacrifice on foreign soil and at home and to those that returned from service bearing the physical and psychological scars of conflict
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
