Eyecatching in Benalla, North East Victoria. Autumn 2013.


Country towns are full of surprises. Every day the same vista will have a new story to offer you, especially when least expected. I never imagined this beautiful autumn vision would jump out at me while walking to a local supermarket for milk and bread one morning.

Close to the Winton Motor Raceway, and only two hours north east of Melbourne, Benalla is always busy with tourists for racing weekends or people passing through to the snowfields or King Valley wineries. This beautifully restored Holden may be local but I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing it around town again on my return visits. I live in hope.
