Wetlands beach


Took the dog for an off-lead walk yesterday along the wilder part of the beach stretching west from Altona.

This is the only remaining part of a train (trolley car?) line that used to extend some distance out to sea. It carried explosives from the Truganina Explosives Reserve (beyond that fence) to waiting ships. The explosives were hand-stacked in bunkers here.

Can you see the pair of fairy wrens? Not often I’ve seen them together.

They may be a weed here in Victoria, but these thistles are quite magnificent.
