Taste of an old tale, Tasmanian style

Dysart House, a Georgian style coaching inn at the historic town of Kempton, stands proudly on the main street. Built in 1842 for the ex-convict William Ellis, an embezzler turned innkeeper, it is now the home of the Old Kempton Distillery.

Old Roots New Leaves

Ken Stronach remembers the day the fires came and life as he knew it at the Tahune Forest Reserve changed. The giant gums that sheltered animals and visitors to the iconic site below became like a furnace, igniting fireballs and plumes of smoke into the air.

One in 4

Recently I was asked to reflect and provide my thoughts on the state of our health in our community. An easy topic to discuss you might think but I will be honest with you, it was a difficult subject to ponder. Health means different things to different people.

Creamy Broccoli with Bacon

I’ve had a little bit of success with the best crop of broccoli I’ve managed to grow. Not to exaggerate, but seriously, those white cabbage moths are such a problem that I just can’t seem to fix, until now! It seems planting later than I normally would has worked.
