The winner is: David Farrell of Diamond Creek Victoria 23km northeast of Melbourne.

GoSee was in Diamond Creek yesterday. It has really taken off since we saw it five years ago as a leafy, bushy town on the route we sometimes take to Hurstbridge and Kinglake.

It is a demonstration of how our population is spreading out from Australia's capitals as they look for somewhere to live.

When last we past through there was a small local hardware store. Now there is a massive Mitre 10.

The winner is another Victorian, Felicity Wright of Drouin Victoria.

Drouin which is 90km southeast from the Victorian capital Melbourne is also being drawn into Melbourne's huge urban sprawl. The Gippsland centre is now considered within commuting distance of the CBD, in fact daily travel to work in Melbourne and its inner suburbs from nearby Warragul, 104km southeast of Melbourne is common.

Huntly is in rich farmland and has beautiful lakes which attract anglers, yachting and waterskiing.

Wikipedia reports that Huntly has a proud rugby league history - at one time the town had four rugby league clubs: Taniwharau, Huntly South, Huntly United and Rangiriri Eels. Taniwharau has been one of the most successful clubs having won 11 straight Waikato premierships during the 1970s and 1980s.

Taniwharau also won the inaugural Waicoa Bay championship in 2002 and again in 2007 a year in which they went through the season unbeaten; a feat that has never been achieved before at the Waikato Rugby League Premier Level.

The Waicoa Bay championship is a combined rugby league competition involving clubs from Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Coastlines.

A number of Kiwi players have come out of Huntly including Tawera Nikau (Rangiriri) Wairangi Koopu (Taniwharau) and also Lance Hohaia (Taniwharau). Other Kiwi players to come out of Huntly include Andy Berryman, Don Parkinson, Rick Muru, Kevin Fisher and Vaun O'Callaghan. The town has produced numerous NZ Maori Rugby league representatives.

Wikipedia says Huntly and its surrounding area is steeped in Maori history and falls within the rohe (tribal area) of Waikato-Tainui of the Tainui Waka confederation. Ngati Mahuta and Ngati Whawhakia are the local subtribes within the Huntly area.

There are a number of marae in and around Huntly they being Waahi Pa, Te Kauri, Kaitimutimu, Te Ohaaki and further north Maurea and Horahora. Waahi Pa was the official residence of the late Maori Queen Dame Te Atairangikaahu and is still the official residence of her son the Maori King Tuheitia Paki.

Free GoSee TravelSmart membership has many practical benefits. A touring aid is the spread-sheet fuel calculator. The spread-sheet is linked to the popular GoSee Fuel Calculator (just click TravelSmart Good Stuff option on the left of the Home Page). Just follow the prompts to become a GoSee TravelSmart member.

It is designed to give TravelSmart Club members the ability to use the speadsheet over 10 fills.

GoSee believes this gives a better range for a running average of fuel performance.

With a 10 fill spread calculation headwinds, hills, road surface, hot weather, different drivers and varied loads and weights are better covered in producing an actual average outcome.
