This gate was on the side of a huge building, which appeared to be no longer occupied...
...apart from these feathered squatters.
The ivy covering the old water tower looks like it is winning the battle - I think the tower would look pretty cool completely covered by the green foliage.
A huge flock of corellas circled the lake, landing momentarily in a tree on the shoreline, before heading to the skies again like a big noisy cloud.
A Bunya Pine tree on the water's edge had an unusually large bare section in the middle, as did the other trees nearby.
On closer inspection, the reason for the bare branches was revealed. These guys looked like butter wouldn't melt in their (beak) mouth, but the destruction they cause is evident.
The lakeside sculptures added to the beautiful scenery, like this pelican...
...and Nagambie's famous racehorse, Black Caviar.
Leaving town, we headed off to visit some local wineries, following the Black Caviar Trail along the back roads.
Nagambie is the Horse Capital of Victoria, with just about every property featuring statues of horses, or real life thoroughbreds like this handsome boy.
We stopped for a look at Chinamans Bridge, the historic timber bridge built around the 1890's. It was one of the earliest timber road bridges in Victoria and had a lift span section that allowed boats to travel along the Goulburn River.
A small tinny motored under while I took photos, adding some nice little waves to my pic.
We continued meandering around for a bit longer before arriving at our next stop - Tahbilk Winery.
