Warburton has turned out to be much more pleasant than expected.
Firstly, the statement that there is only one traffic light in town is wrong. There are none.
Secondly, it's actually much more populated than I thought it would be. It seems to be quite a tourist town where Victorians flock to during the weekend. There were families with young kids all about town, with frequent bikers riding through.
Maybe it has something to do with the gorgeous Yarra River that runs through the town.
Maybe the beautiful mountains that serve as a backdrop had a part to play as well.
What about the lovely walks that one could take along the river, listening to the flow of water and simply connect with one's thoughts and reflections?
It's a real pretty town, Warburton.
A real odd one as well, for despite the rather obvious presence of the Seventh-day Adventist church, the majority of the shops in town were very new age influenced.
Walking through town yesterday, about 7 out of the 10 shops in town were selling stuff like healing crystals, bohemian clothes, handmade soap and various items you would normally connect with a hippy township. The juxtaposition was all rather...interesting.
Not that I'm complaining, I love the hippy shops.
