"I motored on to Wee Waa, in turn discovering an absolutely delightful shop called The Little House on Rose where they sell everything-you-never-wanted but now feel obliged to purchase. One of the ladies was considering going to Tassie where neither of them had ever been. Her name, interestingly, was Shawn. I told them of the store in Latrobe called Reliquaire with its unbelievable stuff for sale and she made up her mind to go on that basis alone before I even told her about Salamanca Markets which they’d also never heard of. Gosh, I thought every Australian knew about Salamanca....maybe they all do now."
What I wrote at the time. I was told that anyone is welcome to come into their gardens and have lunch among the flowers etc. They don't actually sell food there it's just such a nice place to relax and the shop is a treat.
This Lagoon was sooooo pretty!
The water was dead calm, dead old trees, great for reflection photo's!
Just pull up on the side of the road, then walk back onto the bridge for some great photo's
We were driving around Wee Waa trying to find a Petrol Station, when we saw this very unusual building, very different for a country town.
It turned out to be the Police station. It was built like this by mistake, this plan was meant was meant for a police station in the Snowy Moutains, the high pitched roof so that the snow would slide off easily. Somehow, the plans ended up in Wee Waa, I doubt if they will ever have to snow to see if it slides off the roof!
Just something to be aware of, it that a Cattle Droving route runs in this area.
As there had been plenty of rainfall when we were passing through, we only met one Drover on the road. He happened to have his stock at the waterhole getting their daily water.
Remember, if they are on the road, just drive slowly through them, they will move out of the way for you.
Wee Waa is a big Cotton producing area.
The time to see Cotton being harvested is April to May.
At this time, when driving the roads, you most probably will get caught behind over large Harvester's on the road, going from one farm to another.
June, and all the fields had been harvested, but you still see all the rows of blue & white cotton bales, waiting to go to the Ginnery.
The roadsides looked like it had snowed, white with Cotton!
