Branching out: a walk along the Moorabool Barwon Blog

Recently I had the opportunity to view a section of the Moorabool River which I had not seen before. At the invitation of Cameron Steele - co-ordinator of the community group People for a Living Moorabool or PALM as they are known - I accompanied a small group of interested walkers along a short section (a little over 3km) of the river heading downstream from Slate Quarry road where it crosses the Moorabool to the north east of Meredith. The bridge of the same name which crosses the river at this point dates, I believe to 1922, and may be the topic of a future post.

Slate Quarry Bridge, February, 2018
Over the course of several hours we made our way along the riverbank, sometimes walking easily, sometimes rock-hopping and scrambling, sometimes climbing up the occasional steep incline.

Decemmber 8 On This Day in Australian History "IndyWatch Feed Cvic"

1789 James Ruse was a chuffed chappie when he reaped the first harvest on Government Farm at Parramatta.


1801 Flinders explored and charts King George's Sound (later Albany) in Western Australia.


1838 During the Myall Creek trials The Australian newspaper reported that one of the jurors remarked:
I look on the blacks as a set of monkeys, and the earlier they are exterminated from the face of the earth the better. I would never consent to hang a white man for a black one. I knew well (the settlers) were guilty of the murder, but I for one would never see a white man suffer for shooting a black.

1839 Rev. James Gunther wrote in his journal;
We had 14 Young men & elderly boys at Church, also, many Natives, besides about the Establishment. It is pleasing, after all, that however much they wander, they again & again come back to the Mission and seem to consider it their home. - Mr W. being poorly I officiated both times. A certain neighbouring Gentleman, who bears J.P. behind his name, sent, to day, a Black woman to attend Church, dressed in a theatrical & ridiculous style, mens clothes, and with his own, handsomely, bound, Bible & Prayer-book in the hand. Had she come into the Church door, it would, no doubt, have caused laughter with some & thus a disturbance. But fortunately Mrs G. saw her before she had proceeded so far, and kept her in her room, as she was obliged to stay at home. When I came from Church Mrs G. pointed her out to me, and, happily, another Magistrate who had been at Church, just called in, so when we presented the theatrical figure. He was shocked, and said, he would give the Gent a strong reprimand, and I requested him to tell him, if he did so again, I should certainly take some steps against him.

1855 Ballarat was proclaimed a Municipality.

1888 Mr J.T Williams leapt from a hot air balloon over Sydney....and proceeded to demonstrate the amazing powers of the parachute.
At least....we hope the chap remembered to sling one on his back...

1888 The village of Gilgandra (NSW) was proclaimed on this day.

1899 George St in Sydney was beside itself with the comings and goings of the new electric tramway sliding its length.

1909 Lady Dudley got on the blower and called a meeting at Govt House in Melbourne from which lead the formation of the legendary Bush Nursing Service.

1910 Geelong, Victoria was declared a city.

1824 - Gai-Mariagal man from NSW, tracker of bushrangers and resistance fighter Musquito, together with a Tasmanian Aboriginal known as Black Jack were tried and unjustly convicted for the aiding and abetting in the murder of a settler named Hollyoak.

1854 At the impolite hour of 3am police and troops attacked the Eureka Stockade...and a battle ensued...and let's not forget the WOMEN who were shot, one dying immediately, another dying of her wound 3 weeks later and yet another lucky to survive a bullet grazing her scalp as she ran hunched over with her baby.

Hunter's gathering pace "IndyWatch Feed Cvic"

Recovery momentum

Job vacancies continue to rise solidly, up by another +8.4 per cent over the year to October 2017, according to the Department of Employment.

Vacancies have now increased by +37,000 or +26.5 per cent since the October 2013 nadir. 


In New South Wales vacancies are up by +6.4 per cent over the past year in seasonally adjusted terms to the highest level since March 2011.

The recovery since 2013 has really been a Sydney and Melbourne phenomenon...at least, until now.

Regional rebound

It's good to see momentum shifting away from the centre of the city a little, with advertisements now surging back to life in regions such as Newcastle & the Hunter (+26.8 per cent), and Gosford (+21.1 per cent).

Similarly in Victoria there was strong year-on-year growth in vacancies in Geelong (+13.4 per cent) and Bendigo (+13.5 per cent).

Of course, the absolute numbers of vacancies are much lower in regional cities than in the capitals, but the direction is nevertheless heartening. 


There was also double digit growth in Queensland and Victoria, while Western Australia (+16.5 per cent) has clearly turned the corner. 

In trend terms job ads rose in seven of the eight occupational groups over the past year, with...

Alex Lahey "IndyWatch Feed Cvic"

ALEX LAHEY ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM & ALBUM TOUR

 

One of the most impressive indie rock introductions in recent memory Stereogum

 

Alex Lahey announced herself to the world in 2016 with her debut EP B-Grade University. The EP saw the Melbourne singer songwriter catapulted into popularity with fans and critics alike. Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, Rolling Stone, Sterogum all got on board as she scored spots on festival bills from SXSW to Splendour.

Now in 2017, she is ready to release her debut full length album, I Love You Like A Brother, and with it, the first single, Every Days The Weekend.

 

Watch the video for Every Days The Weekend, here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBj_magluuc

 

Lahey sees her life as ordinary: I fall in love, I have a family, I go out with my friends, I like to have a drink. However, most people cant distil those universal experiences into wry, punchy indie-rock songs three-minute odes to millennial angst and all the complicated feelings that come with it. Alex Lahey can. Love You Like A Brother is proof.

 

The video for Every Days The Weekend, created by Alexs long-time collaborator, Jam Nawaz, (Remi, Bec Sandridge) and renowned local artist Callum Preston, features cameos from celebrated Australian comedian Barry Morgan, as well as Alexs mum.

 

To celebrate the release of I Love You Like A Brother, Alex and her band will hit the road in October for a run of shows across the country. After selling out her last in May and wowing fans across the country, this tour should be no different!

BALLARAT Megan Wild 112788 "IndyWatch Feed Cvic"

Legal sex trade returns to city

02 Mar 2001

Up to 10 prostitutes will work at Ballarats only legal brothel, which will reopen in Delacombe on Friday.

BALLARATS only legal brothel is set to re-open under new management.

But the move has already attracted criticism, with the Australian Family Association fearing it will worsen the citys drug and crime problems.

Breathless Encounters formerly Dalliance Encounters will open next Friday in Stonepark Rd, Delacombe, near the saleyards.

The brothel will operate from 10am to 2am, employing two licensed managers and up to 10 prostitutes.

Owner/operator Megan Wild said she was adamant there was a genuine need for a brothel in Ballarat and was determined to show the community it could be operated discreetly and legally.

The establishment is clean and will provide a safe, discreet working environment for the workers and their clients, she said yesterday.

Dalliance Encounters closed its doors almost two years ago.

Megan Wild, a Geelong mother of six, said she managed that business for its former owner.

But Australian Family Association Ballarat branch president Maureen van der Linden said the brothel would be a backward move for Ballarat.

Were supposed to be working towards a better society, not going downhill, she said.

Mrs van der Linden said brothels went hand in hand with illegal drugs and encouraged infidelity.

People choose to live in Ballarat for many reasons. I dont think there would be many people who would choose to live in Ballarat because it has a brothel in it, she said.

Mrs van der Linden said prostitution was a violation of womens rights and made women into slaves.

Ballarat Mayor John Barnes said the brothel was legal and did not need any further permits from the council to operate.

He said legal brothels were preferable over illegal operations.

There are all sorts of personal, health and legal dangers involved in those that perhaps are minimised in legal brothels, Cr Barnes said.

Wed be kidding ourselves if we thought people were not going to seek sex for payment.

Megan Wild said the new brothel would throw open its doors to the public in a few weeks, to allow residents to see the premises and ask any questions.
