    Mark these words, council, or whatever power management above, putting concrete barriers around every one of these places, is inevitable. It's not your average daily or camper visitor 4x4 weekend warrior variety type rubbish. Fair chunk was your annual tip run type sort of stuff.
    Rubble, linen, PC monitors, baby prams, stolen commondoors, burnt cars with police tape everywhere! One of the "low range" tracks there was a full set of Evap air con unit pads thrown to the side...
    I drive up these woods 10 or so times a year. I reckon I've seen more shit up there in the last 12 months than I have , in the last 12 years put together...
    To the Melbournians wanting to visit these spots, I say do it soon. Writing is on the wall...
    It's pretty much how NSW ended up getting locked up. It costs less in the long run to gate and maintain the tracks for govt use only. It will be a sad day.

    That, right there.

    Not only unfortunately in the bush but also happens on spare blocks throughout suburbia. And yes all to do with council rip off tip rates. Sure, I understand the councils have EPA landfill fees to pay, but this is state government charging local government another way to onforward another tax hit down to the layman. Is there any wonder why people dump shit? I dont, but what I do is cut up my waste whatever it may be into bits that fit in my council bin. Could be an old desk, a shitty mattress etc, it goes into landfill bit by bit through my annual rate-paid bin fees.

    F@#king pool fence inspections and inspectors. Absolute joke of a system and only a money making scheme for the council and inspector. Had ours done today. The guys was here maybe five minutes, maybe, cost us $350! WTF?!

    Iím hearing you Mark Mate, NillumDick Council
    Rich lucky neighbour down the road just got pinned on second inspection of his new $100k Lotto pool installation, fences were 1800mm around all external points as originally site inspection demanded.
    The rules have changed since apparently, also needs to be 1,800mm surrounds within too
    Cannot even leave a bucket near the inside fence in case a toddler decides to climb out of the pool area for safety away

    What has made you Angry Today???????

    Nillumdick! I like that. But this is a grubbernment enforced thing and the council is just taking the Mickey out of us now. We had to pay the council first to register the pool, even though they know itís there and even gave me the original plans ( had to pay $90)to the house when it was built and the plans and permits for the pool when it was put in were with it.
    Yeah the rules we have to abide by are laughable too. But we have no choice so we have to abide and pay. Every four years. Itís more the bill from the inspector that got me for the barely five minutes he was here. Iím seriously in the wrong industry.

    @rusty-Nail sorted out our pool protection system, and to be honest its money well spent knowing the barriers are compliant, working and reliable. Better than fronting up to the coroners court because your safety element wasn't working correctly and wasn't fit for what it was there for. Sure, $400 for the 'ticket' might seem excessive, and it probably is, however you can at least be sure you have met the standard required, just now maintain it and the next 4 years will be stress free in that area.

    Agreed. 100%. I want it to be safe. My main gripe is the cost for five minutes of work. Paying the council to register for something they already have in their system, absolute rort! And some of the things we had to do to be compliant, even the fence builders were saying its gone too far.

    Then you drive through the rural areas, there a place close to me which has a dam maybe 20 metres from the house. Why no fence around that? Or around any dam?

    Dams on rural properties are a real mystery. I know that a high proportion of drownings each year with kids are in dams. i dont understand why there isn't some protection apart from the complexity of trying to possibly keep access open to livestock. I know when we put the dam in for Wiseleigh it will be fence. I know when the assessor came around he clipped me on a couple of things and they were then fixed. the biggest one was a window that opened into the pool area. It was not allowed to open more than 80mm - apparently this is the standard for minimum gap that a child can squeeze thru, and its opening into an enclosed alcove as well that the child has to first enter the pool area to access - sounds crazy, very low risk of access, but they are the rules, so now i have a restraining chain on the window to stop it opening beyond 75mm, all compliant, Tick, see you in 4 yrs.

    I decided to take a course of hypnotherapy in my case. Plus Physical exercise helps to counteract the withdrawal, inactivity and feelings of hopelessness that characterize depression. Studies show that both aerobic and anaerobic exercise (exercise which does not require oxygen, such as weightlifting) have anti-depressive effects.
