camminando | Nature + Industry

The day started with a short run in the south side of the Barwon Head river in proximity of Highton. The river crossing through the steel footpath took us to the first encounter with industrial archeology ruins. The Balyang Sanctuary marked the transition from industry to nature.
The second part of the river trip was another journey in abondend factories powered by water: Buckley's Fall trails offered view of the brown waterfall and finally the abondoned Fyansford Paper Mills, which once were born from the usual marriage between water power and man power.
