While we were in the Margaret River region south of Perth last week, we called in at the village of Cowaramup for an icecream – and to smile at all the cow motifs.

The locals jokingly call it “Cowtown”, partly from the fact that the real name starts with “cow” and also because it is in a dairy farming district. But the name is actually an Aboriginal word meaning Place of the Lorikeet.
