At first the novel comes across as an easy to read Mills and Boon like romance tale. But once I read more about the terrible situation in the prison camp and the small actions that can make a difference whether you live or die I soon appreciated it …
The murders of Jim Barclay and John Bamford in late 1917 at Wonnangatta Station near Myrtleford in Victoria is a fascinating mystery. The book covers the theories and paints a picture of the setting with historical stories about many of the locals of the time.
An excellent read for anyone interested in the past and possible future for steam. Full of facts and statistics the statements are well backed up and interesting to read.
An excellent read which covers the relatively unknown life of Princess Louise, Queen Victoria's second youngest daughter.
A beautiful scenic walk through the forest surrounding Powelltown. Logging relics and forest make for a fine walk.
A look at the gentlemen behind the popular image of Queen Victoria. It's a good case study of how biased editing can shape a public figure's image.
Learning about the demise of Australia's favourite car, the Holden.
An excellent read that immerses the reader in the life of Queen Victoria and the era she ruled in.
A brief but hard to follow (due to having to refer to a dictionary many times) look at Queen Victoria's life. More of a commentary than a complete look. Those who don't know the background to the story will find many holes.
A 3.3 km loop walking through an historical gold mining area near the north eastern suburb of Warrandyte. Well worth a visit and there are many fine places to eat in the Warrandyte shopping precinct.
