Jeffrey Smart's 'Truck and trailer approaching city', 1973.
While we're up that way I also intend to visit the Lambley Garden and Nursery, just north of Ballarat. I have been longing to visit this garden for two reasons: (1) the stunning dry garden; and (2) the artwork of Criss Canning - her husband owns the nursery/garden.

And the veggie garden is not too shabby either...
