from w. On Saturday midday Peceli and I drove west from Colac to look at the area known as the Stony Rises, expecting to see large round rocks like Dog Rocks, but it was quite different - rough rocks and mostly used in stone-wall fences made perhaps 150 years ago by the farmers as fences. No cement, just rocks fitted together. They go for many kilometres. We also unexpectedly found a huge shed filled with 'trash' and 'treasure' the Pombo Mart, and a welcoming cafe where we had coffee and scones. An interesting place though I didn't buy any antiques. It's up for sale apparently. The town of Pombeneit (spelling?) seems to be only a few houses and this huge shed.
