It’s all about Brim Beulah Birchip. As we bade farewell to the little town of Brim (population 120) and passed through other tiny towns, like Beulah & Birchip, I never tire of, or lose the wonderment of seeing the endless acres of the stunning green of Barley and Wheat or the brilliant yellow of Canola with the odd smattering of purple of Lupins thrown in. Then there’s the historic buildings in each of these towns – beautiful old buildings that speak to you of their beginnings. Sea Lake was one of these towns, known as the Heart of the Mallee & Home of the Mallee Rally & with its much publicised, by ABC, Lake Tyrrell. Lake Tyrell is Victoria’s largest salt lake covering 20, 860 hectares with 3/4 of the lake being a wildlife reserve. During warm, wet periods the lake takex on a pink colour, from the red pigment, beta-carotene, secreted by algae Dunaliella salina. At certain times of the year (summer I think), because of the salt crust, the lake seems to be floating in clouds – didn’t look like that today!. On through Swan Hill until we reached Echuca were we stay to explore for a couple of days.
