A road side reservation in Colac west just got sprayed about 2weeks ago and it was august 2012 when it was last mowed. Juggy November 19, 2013 Just an update. The long grass in Colac west got cut this morning. Thanks to the bloke from Colac Otway Shire. But now somebody should take a good look at grass along railway… Many fires are started from dry grass and trains. :-/ Comments are closed.
