A journey through Moora, Gobarup and Wanalta today finds well-established active farms with associated sheds, barns and stockyards. You may notice a few small “lifestyle” or hobby farms, usually with a home built more recently …. This collection of contemporary newspaper articles from the first 50 years stands as a tribute to the district’s early settlers, most starting with next to nothing, whose hard work and persistence cleared the land, fenced the properties, grew the crops and bred the stock to graze the pastures. It offers snapshots of how these communities lived and grew between the town of Rushworth and the then district of Colbinabbin, now a small town in central Victoria.
