While my friend Phillip was staying with me we went to New Norfolk as it’s a good place to find antiques and collectables. My favourite place to visit there is the site of the old hospital buildings known as Willow Court. They are slowly being converted into cafes and shops and the site is home to a big antique centre. Walking around the grounds is great fun as you see all sorts of wrecked cars, junk and strange sculptures like these mermaids sat next to a pond. I guess they decided they needed a bit of sun. They are a far cry from “The Little Mermaid” or Barbie aren’t they?
