What do penguins, origami, the Arts Centre Melbourne, and trees have in common? Moira Finucane, obviously. Our revered Climate Warrior Queen, Protector of the Threatened, Architect of the Extraordinary, hasn’t let anything distract her from her quest to raise awareness of climate-related extinctions this year.   I Miss You Antarctica came to the Arts Centre Melbourne (and our homes) on 5 September as part of Take Over! 2020.

The need for balance!

To breathe, appreciate the moment, and emerge calm and refreshed. That’s what BASK Aromatherapy is all about. BASK is owned and run by Siobhan, a master in the art of relaxation. As a qualified aromatherapist, Siobhan is passionate about the [...]

Who’s seen those railway maintenance creatures at work on the tracks? They look like gigantic mechanical beetles, with an unsettling number of wheels and arms and bits and pieces sticking out everywhere, and names like ‘Octopus’ and ‘Platypus’. Well, those extraordinary machines are an essential part of our rail system. Howell Rail, proudly based in Avoca, maintains a whole herd of them.

Wine, as any aficionado will tell you, is a holistic experience – you taste, smell, swirl, describe, hunt for metaphors, tell other people about it, look for the quirkiest or most picturesque cellar door, then go liking to find out how the wine was made and by whom. Wine is ultimately about connection. To the story in the bottle, to the land from which it came. Gundog Estate is a [...]
