Some beautiful environments in Victoria
I am obsessed with distance. There is a view near where I live where I can see a 1500 m mountain; I can see it between a gap in the great divide.
It is 120 km away. Australia is old and flat, mostly. To see this far is unusual. We don’t have any Rockies, Himalayas, Andes, or Swiss Alps. Tasmania is craggy, but it’s highest peak is a little over 1600 m. I have seen further than 120 km over land before (in Aus) but only when I have been standing on mountains looking over to other mountains. It’s 440 m elevation where I live and most mornings I see my mountain. This keeps me in check.
