The Great Forest of South Gippsland. MIRBOO AND THE TARWIN. [Newspaper Article] — Euroa Advertiser and Violet Town, Longwood, Avenel, Strathbogie, Balmattam and Miepoll Gazette — 6 June 1884

The Great Forest of South Gippsland.         MIRBOO AND THE TARWIN.   (BY "SELECTOR" IN THE "AUSTRALASIAN.") Lying intermediate between the sea on the south and the line of railway from Melbourne to Sale on the north, Westernport, and extending thence   easterly to a line drawn from Rosedale to Port Albert, there is a remarkable tract of country to which as yet no comprehensive name has been allotted, but which I take upon myself to desig- nate the Great South Gippsland Forest.   The whole of this tract is characterised, more or less, by trees of gigantic size, which rear their lofty heads high above a thick, sometimes almost impene- trable scrub. Owing to this latter circumstance the term scrub land, which is applied in Gippsland to land     of this kind would convey to the mind of a stranger an imperfect impression of the character of the country so named there.

I stood for a few monients and heard a voice whi -h I at once recoguised as those of some of mytB.Iiualla. acqu'aintances who hal come out for a few days amongst the hares and wallabys.. One muttered ' Oh! we kain't frighten him; he has too much of:the .brgiian? about. liin for us to play with , but we have given: him notice that .we are within short distance." .I then co-e-ed, which wasa immediately answered,and in a few seconds they were in my presence.

FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 188-4. AT the last imeeting of the \Waranga Slhire Council Cr CussEX, in referrillg to thie late confe, ence of shlre councils re the reduction of freight on agri cultural produce suggested that a stand ing commnittee consisting of three of the shires which noved in the matter should be appointed to carry out the objects for which the coniference .was called. The suggestion is a good one, but it might bW improved on. If instead of the two or three councillors to whom Mr Cussex propses to entrust the carrying out of the important reconm nmendations of the conference, we had a body- of prctical mena drawn f.om shire councils, agricultural societies, and fitrmn ers',, unlO?:,DCeiiallJy.snointeto. take these and otllher matters ffiectnIgi the farming interest in hand there would then be a reasonable hope of their 're commendations having some weight.
