Wombats, Wilson’s Promontory and Workshops

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

Living and working in a one bedroom flat, with a small courtyard, I dream of studios/workshops etc. On the way to Wilson’s Promontory National Park in Victoria, we discovered this talented artist in Fish Creek. Andrew McPherson works with old materials, including a lot of old metal. I’m kicking myself for not having bought one of his pieces due to a lack of cash at the time.



Wilson’s Prom is beautiful. The only drawback to this is that everyone knows it’s beautiful and it fills up with bogans at the weekend (why, when you have the sound of the bush and the sea would you play techno music???).  Sunday night was waaaay quieter and more pleasant than Saturday.

One of the great things about WP is the amount of wildlife. You can get up close to wombats and wallabies and as I was in the surf a huge school of fish lept out in front of me.
