What’s in a Name?

Philomena mentioned some of the unusual place names in her state (Tasmania) so I thought I’d post one we saw recently.

I don’t know how it’s pronounced . . . hopefully like ‘dingy’ as in the boat, not as in dark and gloomy. The little town certainly seemed bright and cheerful when we passed through 🙂
