Don’t be late … for a

very important date!
If I had a world of my own,
everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is
because everything would be what
it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is
it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t
be, it would. You see?
- Alice
It’s time to tuck away your over-sized pocket-watch and
disappear down the rabbit hole into the wonderland that is
the Ballan Autumn Festival.
The theme for this year’s parade at the popular annual event
is the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party – and it’s enough to bring a
Cheshire-cat smile to your face.
“The highlight of the festival is the Ballan Farmers Market
Grande Street Parade and the effort that goes in from everyone
involved! There’s some fun to be had with this year’s theme
and we can’t wait to see what people come up with,” said
Festival Committee president Matthew Grindrod.
“If you’d like to participate in the parade, we encourage anyone
to reserve your spot by completing the online application
form. For more information and to register, please visit www.
Meanwhile, things are, of course, ‘curiouser’ and ‘curiouser’

Andrew Smith has gone above and beyond in celebrating

which the festival takes its theme, Alice’s Adventures in
“I went and bought myself the abridged version of Alice’s
Adventures in Wonderland, and in it, I thought the Cheshire
cat was one of the more interesting characters, and in the
story it has Alice falling down into Wonderland and there’s
a whole range of signs and I thought we could replicate that
as part of the festival,” Mr Smith told the Moorabool News.
The Men’s Shed made the signpost and signs, with talented
local artist Sarah Peckham working her magic on the
The signpost has been attracting the attention of locals, and
Andrew is proud of the quirky art.

Ballan’s postmaster Andrew Smith checks his clock, so he won’t be late for that very important date – Sunday 18 March The Ballan Autumn Festival will be held on Sunday 18

Big projects. Big overhaul.

Victoria’s Big Build.
If your plan A is getting an overhaul –
we have a plan B to get you where you
need to go.
Our state is growing rapidly.
That’s why the Victorian Government is overhauling the
entire transport network with Victoria’s Big Build.
Some of these new road and rail projects include:
• the $1.57 billion Regional Rail Revival - upgrading every
regional train line
• the Metro Tunnel – to run more trains, more often
• the removal of 50 dangerous and congested
level crossings
• the West Gate Tunnel - the long overdue second
river crossing
• the North East Link - the missing link in Melbourne’s
ring road
• widening the Monash, Tullamarine and M80 freeways
• the Mernda Rail Extension - bringing trains to
growing communities.
With so many major projects underway, there will be road
and rail disruptions, so to find out if you need to change your
travel plans, visit bigbuild.vic.gov.au or call 1800 105 105.

There’s no questioning the facts. During summer, you should check Fire Danger Ratings daily via the
VicEmergency website or app. The higher the rating, the more uncontrollable a fire would be if one started.
Ratings can be different across the state, so know your fire district. Decide what rating is your trigger to take action.
