The theme this week at Our BeautifulWorld is Woodland.
I love going out into the bush, particularly after rain. I just love the smell then, it's so beautifully fresh.
I live in a coastal area where there isn’t much woodland. So on the way to visiting my mother I took a slight detour to the small historic town of Steiglitz. The town was one of the richest goldfields in Victoria but today it is a virtual ghost town. It’s in the beautiful Brisbane ranges and is surrounded by bush.
My husband is very interested in this topic. He is an historian and has written on industries in some forest in Victoria. I asked if he would mind sharing some of his photos and he obliged. Some of these photos are his and some are historic

This is after a bushfire in the Wombat Forest. Most of these trees will grow back.
