The 10th of March started off with clear skies and perfect weather. Seeing HMAS Choules sitting out off Big Beach brought back many memories. The announcement that Mallacoota would become the Choules’ home port was welcomed by everyone. Getting to talk to the sailors and soldiers, listening to their memories…

The New Year is off to an unfortunate start with the border being locked down yet again. On New Years Eve I went out to the checkpoint at Genoa with a slab of soft drink left over from the fire donations and some freshly baked brownies. Having been in similar…

How different today is to the same time last year. On my bike ride this morning a family of Koalas watched from a tree. Lyrebirds ran along the track in front of me. After the ride sitting at the Bakery with holiday friends having a coffee and chatting almost made…

Christmas Eve is here and Mallacoota has the feel of yester-years with the caravan parks filling up and regular holidaymakers returning to the town. Everyone I’ve seen is doing the right thing, social distancing and wearing masks inside shops. The weather has been kind and a direct contrast to last…

Hello everyone. I can’t believe that Christmas is less than 4 weeks away. A Covid and Bushfire free rest of the year I’m sure, would be truly appreciated by everyone. It would be great if both tourists and residents alike would be mindful of everything the town has faced this…

It is with great sadness that I learned today that unless a buyer is found, the Mallacoota Shell Service Station will cease business on the 20th of November 2020. This is a huge blow to our community. The Shell Servo has been a decades long source of the latest fishing…

Some fantastic warm days have arrived and a few hardy tourists have even been swimming in what is still fairly cold water temperatures. Spring flowers are out and Covid restrictions look like easing so hopefully we can all get back to the new normal soon. It is also great to…

As we hunker down with the fire lit and adapt as best we can to our second lockdown after the summer bushfires it is easy to pick up your phone and see what is happening locally on social media (mainly facebook). You see a post that you don’t agree with…

There is nothing like a drive over Mt Hotham with 10-metre visibility, a wet road, and snow on the ground to make to concentrate. Especially towing a trailer.

Yes, Mallacoota now has a 6x4 community trailer with new lights, ropes, tow light adapters and even tie-down straps. Anyone in town…
