  • White Night could need a white knight

    White Night could need a white knight

    In 2016 I wondered if Melbourne’s White Night was losing its shine. After attending this year’s event the doubts remain. Again, there were great sights at the bookends, but much less to observe in between, apart from buskers. There was also a similarity about some of the displays, and perhaps it could benefit from more reinvention. IMO the event was […]

     
     
  • Tequila Torquay

    Tequila Torquay

    These ‘tequila’ sunrises were taken in the Downunder Torquay as opposed to the one in Britain. No mixed drinks, Mexican or otherwise were consumed, though it was mid-winter and a stiff drink might have helped ward off the chill. I settled for a brisk walk.

     
     
  • Benalla let’s it all hang out

    Benalla let’s it all hang out

    The rural city of Benalla in Kelly Country, North East Victoria, recently held its second Wall to Wall street-art festival, where town buildings are set aside for local and international artists to use as their creative canvas. As a former Benalla boy, I can say that past things ‘arty’ haven’t always been greeted with unanimous enthusiasm, but the whole community […]

     
     
  • Winton Wetlands – Adding Water

    Winton Wetlands – Adding Water

    Earlier in the year I visited Winton Wetlands near Benalla in north east Victoria. It is the largest wetlands restoration poject in the Southern Hemisphere, and I wrote about it HERE. At that time it was like a miniature Kakadu in the dry season. The volume of water varies from year to year and I returned recently, following a not […]

     
     
  • Winton Wetlands

    Winton Wetlands

    At the end of a rock outcrop in the Winton Wetlands an expansive vista suddenly opens up to reveal a grassy plain stretching to the horizon immediately evoking images of Kakadu in the dry season; though, on a much smaller scale and at an entirely different Australian latitude – a Kakadu of the South. Unlike Kakadu there is no indigenous […]

     
     
  • Anglesea – one perfect day + 1

    Anglesea – one perfect day + 1

    It was a pristine November day in Anglesea, on the Surf Coast of Victoria; the temperature was mild and the sky an intense blue. I was beach-hopping from Point Roadknight to Anglesea main beach, but it wasn’t until I detoured into the shadows of the cliffs lining this part of the shore that I noticed the sky reflecting in water […]

     
     
  • Bells Beach on Fire

    Bells Beach on Fire

    The Rip Curl Classic at Bells Beach is the world’s longest running professional surfing event. Located in a rural setting outside Torquay in Victoria, it is held every Easter. The timing of it has often been an obstacle, but this year, 2013, the 52nd, I got to attend mid-event. It was raining when I arrived, though fortunately, for us spectators, it soon passed.  […]
