In this issue we’ve scoured the country to find the most fascinating home and lifestyle stories for your reading pleasure.
In the NSW Central west we visit the grand gardens of Mayfield while in the Dandenongs we catch up with Cathy Court, Australian ambassador for her English family’s finely carved furniture business, Frank Hudson Ltd, at her stunning and eclectic home in the woods. The weather is getting warmer, so we take to the water on board Gary Mason’s restored 1880s sugar cane tug boat at the mouth of the Murray River in South Australia. Then we head to the NSW South Coast where TV chef and seafood guru Rick Stein has a splendidly located holiday house near his celebrated restaurant at Mollymook. We also meet a family of creatives that call a charming Federation cottage on Rye beach in Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula home and profile leather craftsman extraordinaire Angus Barrett. Our service feature covers the latest looks and accessories for outdoor entertaining. Last but certainly not least, our publisher Karen Day swings into the saddle for an amazing horseback safari in Kenya and gets up close and personal with the wondrous African wildlife.
So join us for this issue of Australian Country, on sale until October 30th.
