Horsham is in the Wimmera - this is the area Major Mitchell called Australia Felix - it's good grazing and cropland. It looks like this:
Horsham itself is about four hours drive from Melbourne. It's a pretty straightforward trip, along the highway out thorugh Ballarat. I did my spiel in the Grains Information Centre - it's a facility of the department of agriculture that has rooms for hire. And displays on the history of wheat!
The session went well, I got nine teachers in, and a rep from the Region.
Tomorrow I'll post about Ballarat.
Last Wednesday would have been my sister Marla's 36th birthday. She died just under eight years ago. I wonder what she'd be doing now if she was still with us.
