South Morang

The journaling says:

The journaling reads:
South Morang is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia,
23kms north east from Melbourne’s CBD. It is on the Plenty
River and sits between Mill Park and Mernda. Originally
known as Morang South, it derives its name from the Parish
of Morang which was named after an aboriginal word thought
to mean cloudy or sky.
We don’t have town as such and only last year we had a huge
Westfield Shopping Centre built. We had little stores scattered
around our area before then.
Like most Australian towns the ‘Pub or Hotel was the local
gathering place. Here the commercial hotel was erected in
1890 which replaced an earlier wooden hotel burnt down
the year before. This is one of the oldest landmarks in South

I really enjoyed researching for this challenge and putting it altogether.

Thanks Mary and I'm looking forward to your next challenge already :)
