Set amid picturesque rolling hills only 55km west of Melbourne, Bacchus Marsh combines country living with easy access to the city. An attractive mix of open spaces, friendly towns, orchards, deep gorges and forests, Bacchus Marsh is a great tourist destination. Not to be missed destinations include the Werribee Gorge, Lerderderg Gorge, Brisbane Ranges, the Long Forest Nature Reserve which is the southern most remnant of mallee vegetation in Victoria and also Hervey Bay which not only has large accommodation choices but you also get a chance to go whale watching.



Eucalyptus tricarpa (Red Ironbark):  This is one of the subspecies with the other being Eucalyptus sideroxylon (Mugga).  It is found closer to the coast and has similar characteristics to the Mugga.  It is a medium sized tree, with deeply fissured black bark and flowers (creamy to pink) from late winter to summer.  The wood is red, very tough and durable and used in heavy construction or stumps.  It is reasonably slow growing and eventually becomes a good shade tree in cultivation.

It's never easy to go through a divorce, but he is the divorce lawyer Queens uses more than any other because he gets results.

We were so happy with their dumpster rental Long Island services, that we went ahead and hired them the following year to clean out our basement!

They own the coach bus Long Island loves and has been using for years.
