    C'mon, Graeme, you have the nickel smelter, the super pit and the two-up school all at your back door.

    I wish that I could join you all, but I would probably lose my job if I took one more holiday.

    I'm surprised no one had mentioned up along the Murray. I know it may be a bit far, but there is a stunning park along the banks of the Murray in Echucha, which has acres and acres of gum trees, and lots of birdlife. Great for both morning (sunrise) and afternoon (sunset) shots. The old town has some fine old buildings, including the oldest brothel in Victoria, and some of the finest paddle-wheel steamboats outside the Mississippi. The best bakery in Victoria has a shop in Echucha as well; the Beechworth Bakery. Lots of good accomodations.

    BTW, Sovereign Hill is fun, but expensive and if you setup LF or ULF gear you are going to have to deal with the tourists in the way.

    Damn, you know - you're right! Trip's cancelled - enjoy your get together - I'm stayin' here to play in the dust and see if I can give my wife grounds for divorce!

    It's only a job Robert - there are lots of them here ....

    The reason I'm suggesting Sovereign Hill is because the family can have a good look around while I play with my mates and my camera. It will keep the wife happy if she gets to spend a day outside too (instead of being stuck at the parents' house with the kids and no car).

    But I'm flexible: she's only a wife and there are lots of them here ....

    I think you will be fine; I'm sure she has learned how to put up with you.

    You could always razz the portrait photographer at Sovereign Hill; yes, they have one. He uses one of the real old cameras, the ones where you counted 1001, 1002, etc. to determine how long to keep the shutter open. Just show him your ULF stuff and watch everyone fall over.

    I prefer a more rural setting - one with some good scenery and a bakery and/or pub. I'd love the Grampians so that all the SA APUGgers can get there, but closer to Melbourne might be better for all others. I found quite a lot to photograph near Warburton (sp?) when I went to meet up with David last year. Upper Yarra is under photographed.

    So many photo opportunities at your back door!

    Cheers,
    I'm with the estimable (aging) Mr. Hird in choice of venue, except for Sovereign Hill (Ugh! Tourists!) and can make the 2nd also.

    Sovereign Hill works very well for me. I can leave the family with my parents.

    How about everybody else? Is Sovereign Hill likely to work for you?

    About as well as a root canal.

    I'm still hoping for the Grampians -- but that's just me.
