On our short holiday we went to Gnomesville, which is this amazing place where people from all over Australia and the world leave a gnome. It's located near a roundabout in the middle of the Ferguson Valley just over a half hour drive inland from Bunbury.
The story goes that the roundabout was constructed after a mock council meeting held by the students at the local high school. Evidently the council decided they made a good argument and actually built the roundabout.
There's a little question as to which local woman left the first gnome in the roundabout. One quickly became two and before you knew it there was a gnome footy game. As the spot became more popular it was decided that having the gnomes in the roundabout was too dangerous and they were moved to the road verge. From there they spread out hundreds of metres along the verge and a little way in to the private property adjoining the verge.
This is the Welsh flag. These gnomes came a very long way!
This is the gnome we placed for our family.
We hope he likes his home among the gumtrees.
