On the way home detoured down the rural road to the west of SH2 this time.

Ongaonga - this town has a general store, an historic village, a garage and a Fire Station.

The building below appears to be a residential dwelling, but I Googled and am pretty sure it was once a pub called Sandford Arms.

That last shot reminds me of a very old TV advert for a pub here in the UK.
Apparently, the beer was so popular that the building had an extension on the extension of the extension. :drinks:

Very nice series.
Interesting town
Love that old general store. I see it's original building. Old!
We have Onga pumps here. I see they're sold in NZ. Made me smile when I saw the Ongaonga motors. Just needed an Onga pump sign ☺

This interesting-looking trio was strolling along the street of a Victorian mallee town, population around 1,500; not a common sight in a rural community!

I like these a lot! The second shot looks like a parade. Would you care to add a description?

It wasn't a parade; it was just the first few minutes of the main opened gate. Everyone was walking in towards. . . wherever they were going. For me, I love the dark, sinister feel of the rain darkened sky, the long hair and maybe, the less than clean T-Shirt of the guy following the two women.

From a totally different kind of rural "street" taken some years ago. The place suffered an earthquake a few months before I took this photo.
