Deep in country Australia there’s a constant cultural revolution. Proud country towns have been ravaged by time and the changing economy. It’s the agricultural engine room of our nation. The new Australian identity is forming out here as fast as it is in the cities. To city slickers some of these are cute and some of the signs are funny. Out here they reflect a proud attitude to life. Fiercely genuine, adapted to harshness, and always battling to survive.

The history of cream, in twenty words.
On Tuesday, the pizza is cheap…ish. Not ridiculously cheap and not regular price but cheap…ish.
I still haven’t worked out what this little bit of art is in Bellingen.
When I’m in Nyngan, on the banks of the Bogan River, I choose to dine at Sherelle’s licensed restaurant.
I’m not sure if it’s the tyres or the whole place that’s been for sale for twenty years. Little Topar road-house, fifty five k’s past Broken Hill.
I think South Australia needs a new sign.
