Can you think of a nicer way to spend a labour day weekend than listening to lovely music at the Port Fairy Folk Festival?
I was lucky enough to return for a third year of folkie goodness, carrying my low chair over my shoulder and drinking soy lattes to a lovely range of music.
The Port Fairy Folk Festival spans four days beginning Friday evening and ending lunch time on Monday. This year we drove down Friday after work so while we had a chance to see some of country ... Read More

There is something about Maling Rd that requires the word stroll don't you think? A few weeks ago Sim and I headed here on a lovely Wednesday evening to partake of the Maling Rd Moonlight Shopping event. I had heard about this event several months ago when I met some friends for a birthday brunch here and had popped it into my diary. As a part of this event the majority of the stores on this quaint street had agreed to stay open until 9pm, many serving champagne and nibbles, and there was a roving ... Read More
