Oxley Plains book launch
On the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a book launch. Not your average bad wine and boring speeches sort of book launch though. You either had to be a mountain goat or have a four wheel drive vehicle to get there!
"About A Mile Away - The Heritage of the Oxley Plains" has been put together by a group of locals to commemorate the naming of "Oxley Plains & Forest" by explorers Hume & Hovell in 1824. It's full of stories and photos from early settler families, along with families that immigrated to the area following 2nd world war.
There was heaps of chatter, with the common conversation along the lines of ...Ohhh so we must be related then....
But the real star of the day was the view. What a view! Well worth the climb.
