Wedderburn Today

Wedderburn is a sleepy farming Hamlet (Pop 900) approximately 225Km NW of Melbourne on the Calder Highway. With a rich Goldfields history Wedderburn is part of Victoria's "Golden Triangle". Gold is still found here. The locals grow Wheat, Canola and Baa-Lambs. It is the Antithesis of St. Kilda and the Melbourne CBD but has its own charm. Here I will attempt to post (hopefully) frequent portraits of daily life in Wedderburn.

Beaut 'Ute

The preferred mode of transport of the Twenty-somethings and Thirty-somethings in Country Towns in Victoria is the tricked-up Utility or 'Ute'. This one has a large number of Aerials for CB Radio etc. and is thus known as a 'Porcupine' Posted by Picasa

Never heard "porcupine" before in this context - and I live in Australia!

It looks like in a film ! Especially the big cars. Something about the road 66 but in Australia.
For us it looks like in a film but for you it is daily life!
