When we were driving from Echuca to Tocumwal, we came across the Big Strawberry.
This is one of the Strawberry farms in Australia where you can "Pick Your Own" strawberries straight from the patch. They have the best flavour when you do it this way!
They do meals and strawberry desserts including a strawberry sundae or strawberry pancakes. Jams, condiments & souvenirs are for sale.

Verandah trimmings is what I am talking about, a popular addition to homes built in the 1800's and early 1900's in Australia.
Victorian and Federation Australian homes are common in towns such as Echuca. If you like this type of thing, which I do, go for walk or drive around some of the residental streets to see the pretty iron lace-work on the verandahs that come in many different ornate designs. Some people opted for wood, which surprisingly, can add a lot of attractiveness to the old homes.
Another common sight, are the chimneys, people have them built with little extras so they aren't just a "plain chimney.
