For this issue of Australian Country we’ve travelled from one side of the country to the other. Starting in the west we visit the Wooward family who live in a wonderfully whacky melange of frogs, music, artworks and other creative pursuits in the Perth hills. Then we head east to Victoria’s Macedon Ranges and the home of Blue Rock highland cattle, up to the remarkable and remote Brindabella Station, childhood home of author Miles Franklin. In Queensland we head to a bayside home in Wellington Point and visit ceramicist Kim Wallace with her delicate lace-patterned wares. Chief cook Sue Stadler celebrates summer with a cache of peach recipes and stylist Sandra Hinton heads to the beach for a seafood barbie. We revive the romance of rail travel by boarding the NSW Rail Transport Museum’s Southern Aurora express on a swoop through Temora, Griffith and Canberra. Our service feature focuses on bathrooms and there are loads of decorating and display ideas in every story. Plus acclaimed wine writer Greg Duncan Powell joins our team with the first of his regular drinks columns.
