During my recent trip to New Zealand I decided to revisit the old gold mining area of Bendigo. I had photographed this buggy in Winter a year ago and was pleased to see that it was still there and in similar condition.
Oh, for those of you who are aware of the story of Shrek (the hermit sheep of Tarras, not the big green ogre) he was found at Bendigo Station. He lived in a cave not far from here for six years to avoid being shorn. He was finally caught and taken back to Bendigo Station. When finally sheared on TV his fleece weighed 27kg and it was sold for charilty. I happened to pick up the childrens book about Shrek and this buggy and ruin appear as a watercolour.
