Offering sanctuary

Shelley and her family have created a beloved home and haven for rescued and retired animals, and those in need of some country R&R.


Food at the cutting edge

Ungoverned by traditions and inspired by a melting pot of cultures, Bob Yam reflects on an industry boldly going where it’s never gone before.


Return of the cup

Descendents of racing royalty have had their wish realised with the 1917 New Zealand Cup now back in its place at the Bendigo Harness Racing Club.


Car Couples

The traditional view of classic and sports cars is that it is a bloke’s domain. But in Bendigo there is evidence that the world of polished fenders is attracting both genders.


Planting the seed

The gentle rolling hills that fold away from central Victoria’s granite outcrops to Bendigo hold a revelation – stunning wines with a rich heritage.


Inspired by clouds

Last year I wrote about why booking too far in advance can be dangerous for your business, and this concept of margin so eloquently captures what I had recognized had been my problem: I was so booked up with clients that I wasn’t leaving any margin for error, growth, planning, or reflection.
