Milton Scarecrow Festival 2015

A new adventure starts at Milton today with the Milton's Scarecrow Festival. It was a new event on the Queen's Birthday June Long Weekend and the locals do anything to attract the city dwellers to country town.

Milton is roughly 3 hours drive from Sydney and 2 and half hours from Canberra. So it is a day trip for most people from the two major cities. The town is famous for it historical bakery with over 100 years old. It just out of town a little bit so if you not looking for it you can easily skip on the Princess Highway.

For this trip here, I woke up early at 4am to get ready to leave the house at 5am. I like Winter as I know I can sleep in a a little. But this trip I want to capture a sunrise photo of Kiama Lighthouse which is roughly 1 and half hours drive from my home. So still have to set the alarm for an early rise. But the sunrise at Kiama was spectacular, it makes the trip worth it for me. 

Back to Milton, I have been to Milton before but never dropped in to have a closer look. This time I was, just the town alone. I've heard the locals said the beaches are great as well. So that is reserve for my next trip down South to Milton.
