Redgum road, western Victoria
Fortunately on some of the smaller roads with less traffic there are fewer road accidents and the redgums tend to be left alone. Finding such roads is an absolute joy and there are enough about to make it worth exploring some of the lesser traveled roads in the south of the country. In some cases they form wonderful tunnels or arches over the road, a welcoming tribe of friends in a world perhaps otherwise dominated by actuaries. If you're really lucky you can find enormous, wise old redgums with a road threading its way quietly through, probably put in place during the era of the horse and cart, before both the planner or the bulldozer.
