MelbushO at Woodlands, Sunday July 15

When there are kangaroos on the hop, and planes roaring overhead, you know its Woodlands! This is a park unlike any other in Melbourne, with sweeping hills, large granite boulders, intricate creeks, and farmland and fences to navigate.  A great time was had by all.
