OK from the roadside, but not up close and personal. The Gervasonis can be found everywhere (apart from Newstead, Yandoit and Hepburn Springs); Yandoit to Nelson in the far west — Lisa, a Warrnambool identity, is a keen photographer with thousands and thousands of pictures on Flickr. Another two Gervasoni brothers own the fabulous Newstead Bakery and that alone is well worth a lunch stop (around 20km from Yandoit).
