Australia Day saw the re-opening of The Australiana Pioneer Village at Wilberforce after it had been closed for a decade, and was attended by over 5000 people.
The official temperature in the afternoon was 39.6 C, but it felt hotter... some said it was 42!
I sat on the veranda of 'Cartwright Cottage' and offered my 10 minute Portrait Sketches... and did over 30, this was one of them

I discovered this photo on the The Friends of the Australiana Pioneer Village Facebook page which was taken on this day, it contains a view of Cartwright Cottage on the left, where I was sketching a couple on the bench, with about 5 watching over my shoulder and one on the ground
