    I visited Walhalla on a Uni trip in 1989.

    A couple of weeks earlier, there had been a good storm go through the area, and several of the old Pine trees in the cemetery had been uprooted, bringing forth various skeletal parts.

    This "uprising" coincided with the local Hell's Angels Chapter visiting the town.

    According to the Publican, he closed up when they started to play soccer in the front bar with a skull...

    I guess the kids have got to have something to pass time...

    Recalling an amusing incident in November 1983 when I was a bicycle tourist on a club tour to Walhalla from Mansfield (meaning a 160km ride along very rough mountain tracks with extreme gradients and snow), a journalist friend wrote in Peaceful Cycle Tours of Victoria, Part I of an experience there:

    [scene, in the graveyard]
    ...We sat behind a large headstone talking when a group of noisy yobbos entered. We cut the torches and listened. At the alarming sound of glass smashing against concrete, Russell, a Policeman, used an appropriate foghorn voice and we scared the hell out of them, watching the terrified yobs leapfrog over the picket fence and down to the road far below..."

    I was going to suggest much earlier that if interest in exploring Noojee didn't spark (oh, how wrong I was...) I would have suggested Walhalla for history alone.

    Head down Princes Hwy/Fwy towards the Valley.

    Take the Robin Hood/Mt Baw Baw turnoff.

    Once you get to Noojee (maybe 20km along the road), turn right towards Mt Baw Baw.

    About 4km out of town, you'll see a dirt road off to the left (on a Y-junction) that is signposted for Toorongo Falls.

    Take this and drive to the end (maybe another 5-8km). You'll come to a car park with a toilet block at the far end.

    The rest is up to you!

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it. I thought this may happen. I now have three other commitments on the day, one from 9.30 to 10.30 am, one from 11 am to 1 pm, and then one from 5 pm until about 9 pm.

    I hope you all have a great day and capture some great light.

    "Mostly sunny" is what I have shot in as ideal conditions a few times now. If it rains, bring it on. That rainforest positively sparkles after rain.

    Barring a catastrophe I am a certainty now for getting to Noojee. Looking forward to meeting the group and getting familiar with my Technika III.
