Santa shopping locally in Birchip, a small country town in North Western Victoria. Birchip has had a very poor season this year and it is important that local people support their local businesses so its great to see Santa buying his present in the local shops.
This is the story told by Squatter Coffey a horseman from Beulah in North West Victoria. Squatter his horse, his pack horse and his dog along with a travelling companion set out from Hopetoun on a journey to Warracknabeal. Squatter is following a path along Yarriambiack creek most of the time in a creek bed but also along some of the dirt roads following the creek.
