Yesterday Don and I decided to go for a drive through our local area to look for photos for Friday's Fences. I snapped away happily and will be able to fill my page for a few Fridays to come if nothing better pops up.
The photo below is of the Herbig Family tree, but there is a fence there too. Below there is some official info about this old tree.
The Herbig Family Tree is a large, hollow red gum tree at Springton. It is estimated to be 300 to 500 years old with a diameter of seven metres at its base and a height of 24 metres. A small stream runs nearby.
The tree was the first Australian home of 27 year old Friedrich Herbig who arrived in South Australia in 1855. In 1858 he married 18 year old Caroline Rattey and took her to live in the tree home. The first two of their 16 children were born there. In 1860 he built a two roomed pine and pug hut nearby, and as his family increased, built a stone cottage adjacent to the hut.
