Photographer's Note

Just came back home after several days in the Victorian Alpine region where Autumn colours in certain valleys and towns make areas look very European or North American.

This is an unusual photo of the mountain, taken in front of a small dam on a farming property where the farmer seems to have a liking for palm trees. From the dam to the mountain stretches the Kiawa Valley, vast and beautiful.

The sad undercurrent in this beautiful spot, like everywhere in Australia , is the bitter fact that the indigenous tribes, which treated the mountain with respect and at the foothills of which they gathered for ceremonies, trading and marriage settlements, were decimated.

Now as in many parts of the country, only place names remain, like Bogong, which is the name of the large and protein rich moths which provided plentiful feasts for the distant and near tribes that gathered there at certain time of the year.

Mount Bogong, /ˈboʊɡɒŋ/, located in the Alpine National Park and part of the Victorian Alps of the Great Dividing Range, is the highest mountain in Victoria, Australia, at 1,986 metres (6,516 ft) above sea level.
