Beechworth’s Best – A Wander Through Warner Vineyard

The Warner Vineyard has made quite a name for itself. Fruit from the vineyard is sold to two highly regarded producers: Giaconda and Jamsheed. Giaconda is generally recognised as being in the highest echelon of Australian producers, and sommeliers go nuts for Jamsheed. In 2012, the winemaker from Jamsheed, Gary Mills, started making wine for […]

Baked Eggs with Spinach and Labneh

Baked eggs are such an easy, impressive brekky dish, with a banging combo of proteins, carbs and fats. This recipe is both gluten and sugar free, meaning the coeliacs and health freaks out there will love it. My top tip when cooking this dish is that if the eggs still look slightly undercooked on top […]

With a new album, Glorious Heights, set to drop on August 5, and a national tour about to hit the road in September (with a Sydney show scheduled for October 8 at the Oxford Art Factory), we were fortunate enough to catch up with the thrilling, unconfined […]

Pinniped’s Prime Property

Who said absolute waterfront properties on Sydney Harbour were expensive? I know a quaint little dwelling, a studio, jutting out over the water, boasting sweeping, uninterrupted 180 degree views of Sydney Harbour, including of Sydney Cove and the Bridge, and it’s free. The problem is it’s currently occupied by a very content young New Zealand […]

A woman in her late twenties, she had experienced several short-term relationships with women and men since she was a teenager. For the past three years, she had been in a monogamous relationship with a […]

QTips #8 – Bondi’s New Kids on the Block

Jumping the gun is not a negative. You have to look ahead to see where you’re going; to not prepare is foolhardy. In this case it means looking towards the warmer months, because they aren’t really that far away. July is Sydney’s coldest month; that’s a scientific fact – I read it in a book. […]

The Devil is in the Detail

Success or failure in just about everything we do in life, from the simplest of tasks to the most complex of projects, is determined by attention to detail, as well as a little bit of luck. A tricky conversation, driving a car, delivering a project, running this magazine month to month, even your morning coffee […]

A Week Unwinding In Aitutaki

I’ve been travelling the world now for over 40 years and recently had a day in Aitutaki, Cook Islands that I can only describe as one of my best. The Cook Islands is an archipelago of islands in the South Pacific Ocean, northeast of New Zealand, between French Polynesia and American Samoa. There are 15 […]

Wood Fire Ban a Load of Bollocks

In the July Monthly Mailbag in this very magazine, one particular letter to the editor caught my attention. The letter, titled ‘Wood Fires on the Nose’, was sent in by Dr Stephen Lightfoot, a name I recognise from the Save Bronte movement, which fought against the Bronte RSL development. In it, Dr Lightfoot calls on […]
