Amazingly preserved stretch of the old Great Western Hwy at Meadow Flat can always be relied on for autumnal colour. Still has double-yellow lines painted down the middle and the old speed-limit signs. Further down the hill (right), it drops from 100km/ h to 80, despite kinking into a blind corner next to three driveways! Embarrassingly, brand new highway next to it is... 100km/ h. Progress?
