A Veritable Fairyland.
Etta's Glen, one of the most celebrated of Victorian beauty spots, which is threatened by the forest fires raging in the mountain country outside Melbourne must be seen to be appreciated. A few miles outside Healesville, a noted pleasure resort on the way to the Black Spur, the glen is a veritable fairyland. It is a spot beloved of poets, and has often been sung in verse. It is a riot of delicate ferns and mosses, and the dainty maidenhair ferns grow there in abundance. A tumbling waterfall adds to the beauty of the scene. The foliage in the neighbourhood is so dense that the sun never pierces through. The Glen is a "channel of coolness." even in the hottest days of the Victorian Summer, and its loos would be irreparable.
