OUR REGION

OUR UNIQUE HERITAGE. For more than 40,000 years the Birpai people have been the original inhabitants and occupants of the Greater Port Macquarie region. Relying on the land and waterways to sustain themselves, the Birpai people made temporary huts along the river and around the lakes allowing them to follow the seasonal food trail. The region’s richly diverse landscapes together with the subtropical climate ensured that the community thrived in harmony with the environment for many thousands of years prior to the arrival of Europeans. Today, with its own unique heritage, Port Macquarie is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the NSW coast, and also one of the fastest growing regions in NSW. Discovered by John Oxley in 1818 and named after the Governor of NSW, Lachlan Macquarie, our first visitors were convicts sent to the Port Macquarie penal settlement in 1821 to serve time for secondary offences. The town was built by those convicts and overseen by military officers of the 48th Regiment. Port Macquarie was opened up to free settlers from 1830 and remained a convict town until 1847. Evidence of our convict past can be viewed at various locations including the convict built St Thomas’ Church, the well of the Female Factory in Munster Street ( Map ref K8), the well of the 1840 gaol located within the Ibis Styles Hotel and at the Port Macquarie Museum. The historic cemetery at the southern end of Horton Street ( Map ref J9) is home to the remains of many of our early settlers including convicts, military officers and free settlers. Over the next four years Port Macquarie and the Hastings region will reach a number of milestones in their European discovery and settlement. Last year (2018) marks two hundred years since Surveyor General John Oxley’s journey of discovery during which he and his party travelled to the place he named Port Macquarie. A number of commemorative events and activities are planned throughout the Hastings region across this year. 4

PORT MACQUARIE IS THE PLACE TO CELEBRATE ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S MOST ICONIC ANIMALS - THE KOALA. HERE YOU CAN NOT ONLY GET UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL WITH OUR FURRY FRIENDS AT BILLABONG ZOO (SEE PAGE 19), YOU CAN ALSO VISIT THE WORLD’S FIRST KOALA HOSPITAL, OR TAKE THE HELLO KOALAS SCULPTURE TRAIL TO SEE OVER 60+ BEAUTIFUL KOALA SCULPTURES.

Our

Koalas. Male Koala ready for release from the Koala Hospital

KOA L A S M A K E GRE AT Mums! The gestation period is approximately 35 days and at birth, the unfurred, blind ‘pinkie’ crawls unaided from the birth canal, up through the fur and into the vertical pouch and attaches to one of the two teats. Once their eyes are opened, the joeys detach from the teat but remain in the pouch for around four to five months, growing and becoming fully furred. Anywhere from 250 grams weight onwards, the joey will become active, occasionally popping its head out and sniffing the air. Around this time the joey begins to stimulate its mother’s cloaca

winter 2019

to produce a greenish substance called ‘pap’. This is passed down from the caecum, a specialised section of the intestinal tract where fermentation of the leaf occurs, for the joeys to eat. The ‘pap’ contains vital micro organisms (bacteria) that inoculate the joey’s gut system to enable them to digest eucalypt leaf. Without pap, a joey cannot eat eucalypt leaf and will not survive. From around six months of age, the joey will start emerging onto the mother's belly and by eight months the joey becomes a ‘back young’, staying on or near the mother. By 12 months, the koala is usually weaned. Female koalas are excellent mothers, and are highly protective of their young.

Billabong Zoo Koala Breeding Program

PORT MACQUARIE’S VERY OWN BILLABONG ZOO IS REGARDED AS A WORLD RENOWN KOALA BREEDING FACILITY. THEY PROVIDE GENETICALLY STRONG, HEALTHY AND NEW BLOODLINES OF KOALAS TO OTHER ZOOS AND SANCTUARIES THROUGHOUT AUSTRALIA. WE RECENTLY INTERVIEWED BILLABONG ZOO’S OWNER/DIRECTOR, MARK STONE, ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE WITH BREEDING KOALAS. HERE ARE SOME OF HIS ANSWERS:

The Koala Hospital. The Koala Hospital adjacent to Roto House is the world’s only hospital dedicated solely to the care and preservation of wild koalas. Founded by Jean and Max Starr in 1973, the hospital is entirely self-funded from donations, bequests, adoptions and their shop. It is managed by the charitable organisation, the Koala Preservation Society of Australia Inc., only has seven paid staff, 170 volunteers and hosts one overseas volunteer for one month every month - a position that is in very high demand. Facilities include a treatment clinic, eight internal intensive care units, six outdoor intensive care units and 30 rehabilitation yards. There are a small number of non releasable koala patients who are permanent residents (nine in total) that are available for the public to see. The Koala Hospital is a research institution that collaborates and works with a number of universities and other institutions. Up until about five years ago, this unique Hospital would treat up to 200-250 sick and/or injured koalas each year, and successfully rehabilitate and return about 60-70% of their admissions to the wild. Koalas are admitted from all over NSW. This year the number of koalas admitted to the Koala Hospital has reduced because of the decline of koalas in this region. How can we help the koala population? We need to ensure their genetic diversity is conserved by protecting their habitat, reducing vehicle strikes, dog attacks and disease - this is fundamental to their population health. Primary reasons for admission to care are being hit by cars, dog attacks and the bacterial infection Chlamydia which causes urogenital disease (commonly called wet bottom) and ocular (conjunctivitis). Other reasons include bushfires and issues that occur due to loss of habitat. How are the admitted Koalas named? Usually by the person who found them and the location in which they were found. Of the 900 species of eucalypt trees that grow in Australia, approximately only 60 of them across Australia are ‘food trees’ so koalas’ habitat is determined by the availability of these trees. Australian Music legend John Williamson is also passionate about saving koalas. John has been a patron of the Koala Preservation Society of Australia ever since he met one of their founders, the late Jean Starr, in the early eighties. During a visit to the Koala Hospital, he witnessed an emergency rescue call come in. The entire experience was so impressive for John that it inspired him to write the song “Good Bye Blinky Bill”, which became enormously (Continued on page 8)

How long have you been breeding Koalas? For more than 30 years now my passion for Koalas has grown and grown. When I first received koalas from another wildlife sanctuary (nearly 40 years ago) I was working for my parents who owned and operated their own wildlife park in Nowra NSW. Once the Koalas arrived my fascination grew and grew and it wasn’t long then I looked to breed these amazing and unique animals. Why start the breeding program? Shortly after getting the Koalas, (and I had done a lot of training prior to their arrival), the next obvious hurdle was to successfully and consistently breed them. Back in those days there wasn’t a lot of information readily available out there on Koalas, there were a lot of people trying different things and they too were looking for solid and reliable information on them. It seemed every time I came across or close to the answer on Koalas I was looking for, I had even more questions! I desperately wanted to understand how to care and look after Koalas at the highest possible level so as to have the best chance of breeding them, and some day be able to help other institutions with their breeding programs and maybe even help our wild population. Why is the program important? We know more and more now how endangered the Koala has become. Without our knowledge of breeding and husbandry ideas and the requirements that are so important to Koalas, how will we protect them in the wild? Our knowledge gained from captive Koala colonies can be used to work with and help wild Koala populations. We know what Koalas need to survive, what their limitations are and what they need for protection in the wild. Our captive population of Koalas at Billabong not only give us Knowledge and better understanding, we believe they are ambassadors for their species, helping us in so many ways to help Koalas in the wild. We are able to educate the public about the plight of these beautiful animals in the wild, and what we need to do to ensure their survival, obviously Koala breeding is so important to their survival. If we remove certain elements then they won’t breed and therefore the species is doomed before we even start. There is no point in protecting an area if we don’t know that within that area the animals are going to be safe, secure and able to reproduce. What is the difference between the Koalas you breed and wild Koalas? Obviously in captivity, the problems that exist in the wild for Koalas, the battles they face, whether it’s dog attacks, cars, or loss of habitat, are removed. So we can significantly increase both the lifespan of the Koala and the breeding potential of that animal in captivity. We work within a program and look forward to a situation where we could potentially one day breed animals in captivity that are specifically bred for release. This means that those animals would have very little contact with humans or dogs and any other household situations so that they wouldn’t become complacent and would therefore have a greater success of being released back into the wild. How many Koalas do you have in the program? I normally keep about 20 Koalas in our population here which obviously fluctuates up and down. We are heavily involved in our program this year to increase our numbers because there is potential need for other institutions to acquire Koalas. I’m hoping to increase our breeding program in the near future as the need is increasing for a larger, more sustainable captive population.

Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail. “I was recently in Port Macquarie with my wife's family, we were traveling from Brisbane. We live in NYC and one of our favorite things on our whole trip was the Hello Koalas." (USA visitor email, March 2019) “Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail is a World First”, says UK public art expert, Elaine Burke. “There is simply no other sculpture trail in the world quite like it and the only one dedicated to koalas!” Sue Ashton at The Koala Hospital

(Continued on from page 7) popular throughout Australia. He very generously donated the proceeds from his song to the Koala Preservation Society. John raised a considerable amount of money that enabled the Koala Hospital to build a new “John Williamson Wing” which houses their intensive care unit. Visitors to the Koala Hospital can view the clinic through a large window and see the koalas being treated. You can also observe the care and feeding of the koalas, however the koalas in recovery are behind screens. The hospital has a "koalaseum" which is a unique museum outlining the history of the cause of decline of koalas in Australia, information on their biology, reasons for admissions to care, research etc. There is a microscope and hands on items for visitors to look at as well. Did you know that 100,000 tourists visit the The Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie hospital each year? The Koala Hospital is open daily from 8am until 4.30pm with feeding times at 8am and 3pm. Free guided tours are conducted at 3pm daily where the koalas will be fed and the volunteer will explain how the koalas came into their care. Admission is free and donations are welcome - you can even adopt a koala! Located at Lord St and Roto Place, Port Macquarie, 6584 1522, koalahospital.org.au

Elaine Burke pioneered the award-winning Larkin with Toads public art trail in Hull in the UK - winning Silver for the Best Tourism Event in the VisitEngland National Awards in 2010, and beating the Grand National. As Elaine explained, similar animal sculpture trails are usually exhibited for a couple of months and then dispersed. located Hello Koalas has defied this trend; instead the Port Macquarie Trail has grown in size from 50 to 66 Hello Koalas sculptures, BAGO with more on JIMMY BLOSSOM Artist Artist the way.

Hello Koalas is a uniquely designed cultural experience, with beautifully hand painted Hello Koalas sculptures, many delivering an environmental and koala conservation message, accompanied by the opportunity to see real koalas resident at the Koala Hospital. There are four Hello Koalas sculptures at the Koala Hospital, including ‘Sunshine” which was created by the famous Australian singer and artist, John Williamson who is a patron of the Koala Hospital. Acknowledging its outstanding success as a cultural tourism attraction, TripAdvisor has ranked Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail #3 of 44 Things to Do in Port Macquarie and #1 Landmark. Much loved by the local community and a big hit with visitors, the Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail has become an iconic brand for Port Macquarie. While the committed visitor may spend up to three days, tracking down all the Hello Koalas sculptures,

there are around 10 located right in the heart of town and a further 20 sculptures a short drive away, in high profile locations such Sea Acres Rainforest Centre, so even if you are in Port for just a day or two, you can easily see around 30 sculptures on the Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail. Hello Koalas sculptures are sponsored by local business and community groups, making the Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail freely available for everyone to enjoy. How good is that! Don’t forget to takes lots of photos and post them on facebook or Instagram and the Koala Hospital Hello Koalas sculptures are always pleased to receive 5 star reviews on TripAdvisor!

OUR REGION

WITH ITS IDYLLIC CLIMATE, STUNNING BEACHES, NATURAL BEAUTY AND PERFECT POSITION NESTLED BETWEEN SYDNEY AND BRISBANE, IT'S NO WONDER PORT MACQUARIE IS EXTREMELY POPULAR WITH VISITORS AND LOCALS ALIKE. AS ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING REGIONS IN NSW. SEA CHANGERS AND TREE CHANGERS ARE FLOCKING TO OUR PATCH OF PARADISE.

31.43°S -----------------------152.90°E

Port Macquarie. Port Macquarie (or "Port" to locals) offers the visitor so many opportunities to share our fabulous lifestyle. Apart from enjoying our relaxed coastal vibe or taking in the breathtaking scenery of our hinterland, there are a myriad of events throughout the year to enjoy - from food, wine and beer festivals, music festivals to major sporting events, there is something for everyone. Visit our website for this season's major events. Recently we have been recognised as a World Festival & Events City by the International and Events Association. Port can proudly claim that is has become a food-force to be reckoned with, with many restaurants and cafes truly embracing the locavore tenet. From a sublime dining experience at our one-hatted restaurant to a relaxed coffee, juice or smoothie by the beach, Port Macquarie has it all!

Town Green + Town Square As the central hub in town, the Town Green + Town Square are popular places to enjoy the waterfront. The area has recently been given a face-lift to enhance the community experience. Sunsets are simply not to be missed from here! Nearby at Town Square, works have also taken shape to provide a more vibrant area with al fresco dining and space to host markets, events and festivals. Kooloonbung Creek Nature Park (Entry through the historic cemetery) – covering 52 hectares, the Kooloonbung Creek Nature Park preserves an area of natural bushland with 3kms of walking tracks, boardwalks, and a new 600 metre cycleway. Here visitors can wander and enjoy the beauty of the area and its eco-systems. Map ref J9 Settlement Point Reserve Located just five minutes drive from Port Macquarie Town Centre it is a great spot to take in the Hastings River. Facilities include picnic tables, BBQs, a playground, lots of parking and a nearby cafe. You can even take the short ferry ride over to the North Shore from here. Dolphins are frequently spotted along the shore as they frolic in the shallows of the river. Be sure to look out for them! Map ref H3 Tacking Point Named by Matthew Flinders in July 1802. The lighthouse is the third oldest in the country and has recently been restored. It was built in 1879 to warn ships of the rocks near the shore and was converted to automatic operation in 1919. Apart from the interest of the lighthouse itself, Tacking Point with its elevation above the surrounding coastline offers superb views to both the north and the south – in October and November be sure to look out for whales.

Here you’ll find the Boorganna Nature Reserve, a large remnant of the forest that once covered the whole plateau. There is a fantastic 2.7km walking track that starts at the picnic area where you can see many differing bird species and lush rainforest plants.

There is a viewing platform and a timber walkway for those who would like to walk to the bottom of the falls. Whilst the road is mostly unsealed, it is definitely worth the trip (allow around 45 minutes for the drive from Comboyne).

This area of parkland was first sighted by Captain Cook in 1770. He saw Aborigines standing on what is now known as Diamond Head and named the promontory Indian Head. In more recent times a man named Ernie Metcalf lived on the headland. He was the subject of ‘The Man on the Headland’ written by Kylie Tennant. He built a hut for Tennant who subsequently gifted it to the park. It was restored in 1980 and is now one of the park’s attractions. Diamond Head itself is quite striking. It rises 113 metres and is edged by the wetlands and heathlands of the coastal plain. The park is ideal for bushwalking, birdwatching, fishing (from the rock platforms you can catch groper, bream, tailor and drummer) and swimming.

HUMPBACK WHALES FACTS • Humpback whales are the most acrobatic of all the great whales.

WHALE WATCHING + WATERWAYS

• A whale's tail or fluke is unique to each whale and is what is commonly used to identify an idividual whale, just like a human fingerprint. • A baby whale is called a calf and weighs nearly one tonne when born. They consume up to 600 litres of their mother's milk per day.

31.43°S -----------------------152.90°E

Each year between May and November, the Port Macquarie coastal region is a haven for whale watching. After a full summer of feeding in Antarctica, approximately 16,000 humpback whales migrate north to sub-tropical waters where they mate and give birth before making their return trip south. A great way to experience these magnificent creatures is on a whale watching cruise. Departing frequently during the season, these cruises will almost guarantee you an upfront and personal experience in a safe and comfortable environment. Port Cruise Adventures For an unforgettable experience on the water, Port Cruise Adventures has it all.

OUR INDULGENCES

MICHAEL BURKHARDT AND HIS FAMILY HAVE SPENT THE LAST SIX YEARS CREATING AN AUTHENTIC FOOD EXPERIENCE FOCUSED ON SUSTAINABLE GROWING METHODS AND PURELY ORGANIC INGREDIENTS WHERE POSSIBLE.

Burkhardt's

ORGANIC BAKERY

Walking down Short Street in Port Macquarie, you’ll be greeted with a number of ways to inspire your inner foodie. It’s quickly becoming a speciality food strip where you can find anything from those hard to source Asian ingredients to some of the tastiest bread and desserts that you’ve ever tried. There’s one little shop with a modest façade, a warm and welcoming counter and normally a line-up of people excited to get the day’s fresh treats. From first glance, this place has a lot more going on than most people would expect. Behind the doors of this German inspired Bakery, which has been a local business on the scene for the last 12 years, Michael Burkhardt and his family have spent the last six years creating an authentic Food Experience focused on “real” food, sustainable methods and utilising as many purely Organic ingredients as possible. The term “Organic”, for this German Pastry Chef/Baker, is definitely more than just a current day marketing term - it’s a way of growing, sourcing and baking on a day-to-day basis.

winter 2019


Michael puts real passion and dedication into his work to ensure his loyal following of customers are getting a genuine paddock to plate experience. The best example of this next level of baking, is the herd of Heritage Breed Scottish Highland Cattle he and his family breed and raise locally on their farm. The challenge being, these cattle need a minimum of 3 years before they reach a maturity level for use. The result is a healthier and more flavoursome meat, well worth the time and energy required in caring for the herd. The meat from this particular breed is 50%

lower in cholesterol and has significantly higher iron levels than that of common breeds and is used in his sensational meat pie and sausage roll range, of which there are Gluten Free options as well. The dedication doesn’t stop there - Michael is also fully committed to sustainable practices and chooses to use an Organically grown flour. He also uses “Salt Of The Earth” hand harvested sea salt and fully filtered, fluoride-free water in all of his products. With this kind of passion for their products, it is no wonder that Michael’s daughter, Ashleigh, has joined in the food side of things by preparing her own line of Vegan Raw Slices, which are refined sugar free, dairy free and gluten free. Her desserts are packed with nutritious ingredients and flavour. The only way to believe it is to try some for yourself! So the next time you’re strolling down Short Street and notice the boutique food stores that may inspire your cooking, be sure to pop into Burkhardt’s Organic Bakery and taste the difference of what experience and a passion for healthy and sustainable food is like.

"AN AUTHENTIC FOOD EXPERIENCE FOCUSED ON “REAL” FOOD, SUSTAINABLE METHODS AND UTILISING AS MANY PURELY ORGANIC INGREDIENTS AS POSSIBLE."

Botanic Wine Garden Welcome to Botanic Wine Garden...Just like you, they dream of ditching work to sip rosé in the park and of hot summer nights all year long. Come and be a part of what they are – a place to celebrate life with what they know best – food and drink. Their space is local, spreading from the inside out; they're organic in their approach and delivery. The team's background is complex and while they hail from some of the finest dining establishments, they just want to be your favourite neighbourhood joint. The progressive menu comes from North Coast farmers' markets, local producers, fishing boats and oyster leases, country fields and the wondrous meanderings of spirited travellers with passionate palates. Here they believe that every wine has a story to tell, be it about the place, the grape or the winemaker. The Australian orientated wine list is broad enough for you to come by and enjoy wine with them every night or perhaps order something you can't get anywhere else in the world. The Fat Fish If it’s ocean front dining you’re after, then The Fat Fish at Bonny Hills is the obvious choice. It’s only a 20-minute drive south of Port Macquarie but you will feel like you’ve escaped it all. Take in the stunning beach front setting overlooking Rainbow Beach, while Karyn and her team treat you to modern Australian cuisine created from local produce including mouth-watering wild Australian caught seafood. The scrumptious daily specials and delicious desserts will keep you coming back for more! Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at this little gem by the sea, so be sure to book a table on the balcony and keep your eyes open for dolphins and whales (in season) passing by. Functions including weddings and special private events can all be catered for. (see ad page 3)

The rebellion is not in the clothes you wear, it is not in the appearance you portray, it is not in the music you listen to. The rebellion is the process of forgetting everything you know and asking the questions to what everything is again, where you are now questioning everything for you to decide, rewiring your every circuit by erasing everything you know or thought you knew and were taught. The rebellion is tough. The rebellion is not always pretty. The rebellion is first in the mind and the rebel is in the act. — rex x.
