Wowsers, Bowsers and Peppercorn Trees

A couple of years ago we stumbled into Ariah Park in southern NSW. Never heard of it? Well it is the birthplace of Bulk Grain Handling and Dame Mary Gilmour. The locals refer to the town’s attributes as being “Wowsers, Bowsers and Peppercorn trees” because the pub is closed (or was at that time anyway), the old petrol bowsers are still in place on the footpath and the main street is shaded by gnarled old peppercorn trees. Fair enough.
