Amiens

With a name such as Amiens, it stands to reason that there would be links back to World War I. Quite a few villages along Amiens Road are named after the bloody Western Front battlefields. That is the case, but even though the name Amiens is French, the major ethnic group in the area are Italian. It was one of those soldier settlement areas, when the lads came home from the war they were offered miniscule blocks of land. A high failure rate resulted. Latter day winegrowers and orchardists have made up for that, with fruit orchards and wineries in the area. Whilst in the area it is possible to do a bit of fossicking in the old diggings. In order to do this you will need a licence. Stop off at Donnelly's Castle for a picnic where you will find a wood barbecue. Donnelly's Castle Lookout is atop a huge granite boulder.
