Blackwood Hotel

Atop a ridge between the Wombat State Forest and the Lerderderg State Park in Victoria is the old mining town of Blackwood.

We order dinner at the rambling weatherboard Blackwood pub, it is Pot and Parma night. The publican comes out with a heaped plate of strips of steak for a mob of waiting kookaburras on the deck. There’s seed for the King parrots and last of all a whopping parma for us. Oh, you beauty!

    1. If you cut it into strips they bang it about first to ‘kill’ it. Their favourite diet is snake and they will sit for hours in low branches just watching the grass for movement. They must have incredible eyesight. Best of all though is that they live in groups and serenade us with ‘laughter’ at sun up and sun down. Tis a wondrous sound.
