DESKTOP 2869 - WINTER'S HERE

The last two days in Melbourne have been grey, cold windy and rainy. As I write this, a storm is going on outside with wind and rain lashing the windows. Grateful to have a warm house and a comfortable bed to go to tonight...

DESKTOP 2868 - HEALESVILLE, AUSTRALIA

Healesville is a town in Victoria, Australia, 52 km north-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the Shire of Yarra Ranges. At the 2011 Census, Healesville had a population of 6,839. Healesville is situated on the Watts River, a tributary of the Yarra River.
 
The creation of a railway to the more distant Gippsland and Yarra Valley goldfields in the 1860s resulted in a settlement forming on the Watts River and its survey as a town in 1864. It was named after Richard Heales, the Premier of Victoria from 1860–1861. The post office opened on 1 May 1865. The town became a setting off point for the Woods Point Goldfield with the construction of the Yarra Track in the 1870s.
 
Healesville is well known for the Healesville Sanctuary, a nature park with hundreds of native Australian animals displayed in a semi-open natural setting and an active platypus breeding program. The Yarra Valley Tourist Railway operates from Healesville Station on every Sunday, most public holidays and Wednesday to Sunday during school holidays. The town has several caf├ęs, hotels, holiday accommodation options and restaurants. The many Northern Hemisphere tree species planted in the town make for wonderful displays in late Autumn.
