Today while Dad was at work, we did some touring around with Mum and Karney, one of my aunties. Karney knew about this place called Echo Farm, so we headed there for a wander around. Echo Farm is a living time capsule showing rural life from the 1900’s through to the 1960’s. In addition to the main house there are several other buildings you can explore, all of which was very interesting and I saw many products and brands that I haven’t thought of in a long time, like Maloney’s (the local soft drink manufacturer), Cottee’s (makers of cordials) and Mortein (fly spray.) There was a huge turkey in one of the yards, along with a smattering of other animals including a donkey and kangaroo near the front entrance. In one of the paddocks there was a series of chainsaw sculptures, so I got a shot of the one you see below.
