Roo Theatre presents The Full Monty Roo Theatre celebrated its 25th birthday on Saturday 25th February with a special performance of the musical The Full Monty. Now the public can also enjoy this hillarious comedy. The Full Monty is directed by Roo Theatre’s founder Gordon Streek. “With all the downturn in the local steel industry this show is particularly relevant”, Mr Streek said. “It has great music and good Aussie humour”. Based on the English film, the show tells the story of six unemployed Wollongong men—yes we have localised it—low on cash and prospects, who decide to present a strip act at a local club after seeing their wives' enthusiasm for a touring company of male strippers. To compete they threaten to go all the way, the full monty. As they prepare for the show, working through their fears, self-consciousness and anxieties, they overcome their inner demons and find strength in their camaraderie. This show will have you rolling in your seats and crying the next.

Start off 2012 at the Roo Theatre celebrating 25 years of bringing you great theatre. The Full Monty will be presented at The Harbour Theatre, Shellharbour, on: Friday 24 February – 8pm Wednesday 29 February – 8pm Thursday 1 March – 8pm Friday 2 March – 8pm Saturday 3 March – 2pm & 8pm Wednesday 7 March – 8pm Thursday 8 March – 8pm Friday 9 March – 8pm Saturday 10 March – 2pm & 8pm Ticket Prices: Adults: $30 Concessions: $25 You can book online at

Kiama Lighthouse and Blowhole © Alan Nicol

Kiama - Jamberoo Kiama The coastal town of Kiama is said to gain it’s name from the aboriginal word Kiaram-a which when translated from the local aboriginal language “where the sea makes a noise”, is undoubtedly referring to the famous ‘Kiama Blowhole’. There is a wide assortment of things to do and see in the Kiama area. Walking tracks ensure that you can visit the Lighthouse, Kiama Harbour and both the Main and Little Blowhole with ease. Fishing, beach swimming and exploring the rock pools are also great activities. Some great cafes line the main street for those looking for a bite to eat and the Sandstone Terrace Shops make a great place to browse with friends. The Kiama Terraces in Collins Street date from around 1886 and are now classified by the National Trust. Many of the historical buildings can

also be viewed and a top heritage walk leaflet is available at the Kiama Visitor's Centre.


Jamberoo was opened up for grazing in the 19th century and, at the time, much of the original rainforest was shipped out to Sydney as building material. Jamberoo was settled in the 1820's when it abounded in dense vegetation and rainforest. Jamberoo today is a small but quaint village and visitors will enjoy a leisurely drive out to the town past the rolling hills and countryside. Jamberoo still houses many of the original churches and the schoolhouse with the local pub's age dating back to 150 years ago. Fredericks General Store in Allowrie Street can provide you with a local map should you need one. Minnamurra Rainforest Reserve and Jamberoo Recreation Park are top

attractions in the area to check out and should not be missed when in the area. The rainforest reserve is home to abundant native wildlife and spectacular waterfalls whilst the Jamberoo Action Park is fun for the whole family!

What to See & Do ■ Enjoy the many shops, boutiques and cafes. Check out the Kiama Terraces. ■ Take a walk in the Minnamurra Rainforest or head to Illawarra Fly Treetop walk. ■ Visit the famous Kiama Blowhole or to the Little Blowhole. ■ Be thrilled at Jamberoo Action Park.

What to See & Do

Gerroa is the closest town to Seven Mile Beach National Park, a grand and inspiring sweep of sand with an extensive dune system and a wealth of bird and mammal life. Gerroa developed as a holiday town, although Seven Mile Beach had been used for horse racing as early as the 1860s. In 1933, aviator Charles Kingsford-Smith used this beach as the runway for his pioneering flight across the Tasman to New Zealand. Gerroa offers easy access to several national parks and fine beaches as well as many of the prime attractions of the Illawarra, such as wineries, quaint country towns and historic attractions. The award-winning Sea Vista Café

The Lagoon at North Werri Beach has become our family favourite lately - it covers all the essentials. With the lagoon entrance currently open to the ocean, the water has been pristine – a stunning place for my two year old to swim, and “whoosh” through the incoming current. After our swim we wrap up and climb the sand dune to try and spot Daddy in the surf. He has found a left hander and we watch him on some nice waves. Then there are castles to build, and rocks to explore. We watch people on the costal walk from Kiama to Gerringong. It starts at Kiama Heights (Loves Bay) and finishes six kilometres later at the Werri Lagoon. This walk is definitely on my

list of things to do. But for the mean time I will continue to laze on the beach and smile, witnessing some amusing reactions as people reach the end of their trek and realise they have a compulsory lagoon wade, for some this is obviously unexpected! Loving life on the South Coast.

Berry - Shoalhaven Heads Berry Set amongst rolling green hills with the backdrop of the stunning Cambewarra range, its striking landscape is unparalleled. Berry, the first truly rural town south of Sydney is a country experience like no other. Dairying and logging on the coastal plain were the initial drawcards to the district but now the town is famous for its cafes, homewares and boutique shopping. The surrounding area is dotted with many boutique wineries of note and the restaurants and local gourmet food outlets should not be missed. If passive pastimes are not your thing – then Berry won’t disappoint you either. Berry has a wonderful assortment of quaint B & B ‘s that you can stay in when enjoying the area. The Apex Park in Berry is a great place to relax and enjoy a picnic after a pleasant day of shopping!

There is always something happening in Berry from the country markets on the 1st Sunday of the month, the Berry Show in February, the Musicale festival held throughout May and June or the beautiful Garden Festival in October.

Shoalhaven Heads Shoalhaven Heads is located at the southern end of famous Seven Mile Beach and its surrounding national park. The surf here is some of the best on the South Coast and the local surf life saving club provides beach patrols in the main holiday season. Accommodation in the area includes van parks, guest houses, homes to let, resort and motel styles. There are a number of dining choices, bowling and golf clubs and local stores. Lovers of all waters sports have access to both ocean and river front. Fishing and bushwalking are also very popular in the area.

Visit the Highlands for Brigadoon in April Australia’s premier Scottish Gathering —Brigadoon—will again weave its magic, at Bundanoon in the Southern Highlands on 21 April. Be prepared to have your blood stirred and spine tingled as the mist rolls back to the skirl of bagpipes and the village becomes Brigadoon for the day. Once again, Highlander, Celtic Rock Band, is bringing its unique sound to the gathering. This five piece group has a unique sound which has been wowing audiences of all ages with their electrifying high-energy music. The Street Parade starts at 9.30am and features 23 Pipe Bands from across NSW. The Opening Ceremony begins at 10.30am on the Oval and the Gathering is officially opened by the Chieftain of the Day. Spectators are treated to a spectacular Massed Pipes and Drums display of highland music. With the swirling of a myriad of coloured tartans and accompanying music that stirs the heart, it makes you proud to wear the Kilt of your ancestors. At the Oval there are over 120 specialist stalls, selling everything imaginable, from Scottish pies to shortbread, from Clan memorabilia to souvenirs, with copious amounts of burgers, steaks and a variety of food promoting every nationality, even the Scots favourite “Haggis”.

Super fresh cafe & deli menu ‘Gourmet to go’ take home meals

9am to 5pm 7 days Everyone is made most welcome at the gathering and encouraged to participate in the “Traditional” and not so “traditional” games. Throughout the day enjoy Highland and Scottish Country dance demonstrations and Pipe Bands entertaining crowds with their individual styles of music and marching. Heavy Championship This year the Brigadoon Challenge will again consist of three events. 1. Heavyweight Caber 2. Tossing the weight over the bar for height & 3. Throwing the weight for distance. Using a points system the overall winner of these events wins the Brigadoon Challenge. One of the main events of the day is the display of strength by David Hux. For more info visit

Quality producers of

A fertile food producing region We are all becoming more interested in the quality of our food, where it comes from, how it’s grown and how far it travels. Top quality locally grown produce has never been more popular. Blessed with a temperate climate, the South Coast supports producers ranging from fishing and oyster farming to dairying, market gardening and vineyards. This in turn is attracting a growing number of restaurants, chefs and providores committed to using the best and freshest local produce. The South Coast iMag’s Fresh Food and Farm Trail opens the door to the culinary delights of this fertile region.

Kangaroo Valley The original inhabitants of Kangaroo Valley, the ‘Wadi Wadi’ people, shared the valley with kangaroos and other native species. In 1840 a local pastor declared “This valley takes its name from the numerous kangaroos which abound here”. From the early part of the 19th century, cattlemen like Richard Brooks and Cornelius O’Brien acquired extensive landholdings in the valley. They were followed by Irish settlers who, to the delight of their neighbours, brought with them their “moonshining” skills. Gradually more settlement took place and a patchwork of small farms spread out as far as the escarpments, mainly concentrating on dairying activities. In 1977 the pleasant ambience of the entire valley and village was recognised by the National Trust. An outstanding feature of Kangaroo Valley is the Hampden Bridge across


the Kangaroo River with its impressive castellated sandstone towers. Opened to coach and cart traffic in 1898, the bridge was named after the then Governor of New South Wales, Lord Hampden. While visiting Kangaroo Valley make sure you call in at the Pioneer Farm Museum, a time capsule of life as it was 150 years ago. Kangaroo Valley is both pretty and dramatic – remnants of rainforest cling to the steep escarpment, while the Kangaroo River and small creeks crisscross the valley. Here you can enjoy the ideal ingredients of a short break – cafés, galleries, pubs, cabins in the bush and bushwalks. Kangaroo Valley Pottery located in the main street is a great place to pick up some local pottery and landscape artworks.

What to See & Do ■ Kangaroo Valley boasts some wonderful rural scenery- be sure to bring the camera and stop along the way for photo opp ortunities. ■ Visit the Kangaroo Valley Olives Centre processing facility and cellar door for fresh olive oil or tasty olives. ■ Stay overnight in your choice of great B & B ‘s and country home stays, some have won spectacular awards. ■ Join a kayaking or canoeing safari to Kangaroo River and Shoalhaven Gorge. ■ Visit Pioneer Museum Park - based on a typical 19th century farmhouse. ■ Kangaroo Valley is the perfect place for a bushwalk.

Kangaroo Valley - Australia’s most beautiful valley

Kangaroo Valley is widely regarded as one of Australia’s leading eco responsible tourist destinations and the Kangaroo Valley Tourism Association is working hard to keep it that way. So that people can continue to enjoy the pristine natural beauty and country charm of this area for generations to come, the Kangaroo Valley Tourism Association is using a Green Kangaroo symbol to indicate tourist operators who are participating in the ‘Becoming Carbon Neutral’ program. Participating members are auditing their CO2 footprint, reducing their energy use and offsetting greenhouse gases so that your visit has minimal impact on the environment. The Green Kangaroo is just the latest of many eco responsible practices introduced by tourism operators to protect and preserve the environment. Kangaroo Valley was the first plastic

bag free town in mainland Australia—an initiative proudly supported by many local tourism operators— and the association is supporting nature and heritage projects to preserve the area’s beautiful environment and historic structures. Visitors can make a valuable contribution to these initiatives through direct financial support, by choosing participating operators and by driving less and enjoying walking and cycling while in Kangaroo Valley.

HopDog to release new season beers The South Coast’s newest micro brewery, HopDog BeerWorks, will launch its second range of seasonal beers this month, boasting new and creative flavours. Owner Tim Thomas and wife Tess have developed three new recipes to complement the foods more commonly eaten during cooler months: Alluvial Peach - brewed using peaches from the Arulean region of NSW and aged in French Oak barrels; an ageold method more common in wine production. Ham on Rye – a complex golden ale brewed with smoked German Rauch malt and hint of rye, giving an aroma of cracked pepper, smokey bacon and taste described as ‘a bacon sandwich in a glass’. This autumnal ale promises a dry finish and assertive taste. Coffee Pants – a strong dark coffee stout beer made by adding organic fair-trade coffee at two separate occasions during the fermentation process. Tim says this is a beer coffee lovers shouldn’t miss.

Stout is a style of ale, just bigger and darker than it's paler cousins. The new range’s release marks a milestone for the 200 litre nano-brewery that only commenced operation in mid 2011. The new beers will be released at a launch event on 25 March from 11am-2pm in the brewery tasting room. There will be a brewery tour at 11am followed by the launch and tastings. To complement the flavours of the new beers, a professional barista will operate on site while bacon and egg rolls are cooked on a barbecue. The new beers and all-season ranges will be available to purchase in standard bottles and 2-litre refillable bottles, called growlers. Standard bottles come complete with HopDog’s trademark bright green caps! HopDog BeerWorks Brewery Door opens for tastings and sales on Friday 10am-6pm and on Saturday, Sunday and Monday 10am – 4pm. For more information see HopDog’s ad on page 21, visit, find them on Facebook or call 0428 293 132.

The Butterfactory & The Woodbox Cafe, Pyree This month, we caught up with Andrew Heffill, owner of The Butterfactory Restaurant and the Woodbox Cafe... Who taught you to cook? My mum and nanna. What inspired you to become a chef and restaurant and cafe owner/operator? I like food. I like everything to do with food. I enjoy meeting people and the social nature of the industry. I couldn’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing. Do you have a philosophy on food? ‘Fresh is best’ and ‘if it’s not perfect, don’t serve it’. Food has got to be fresh and visually appealing. I serve food that I like and that I hope others like too. If it’s made with local ingredients: even better. What are three things in your kitchen you can’t live without? My dishwasher, a good knife and good kitchen staff. What was your most memorable meal? A meal at La Trianon restaurant in Darling Point, Sydney. It was my sister’s 21st birthday and I was a teenager. It was the most amazing place I’d ever seen and it had an impact on me going into the hospitality industry. It showed

me what good hospitality can do for people. We still talk about that dinner as a family experience. What is your typical breaky? A cup of tea and piece of toast. Every good day starts with a cup of tea. What are you most proud of about the Butterfactory Restaurant and the Woodbox Cafe? That the Butterfactory is still here after six years and that people keep coming back because they enjoy it (people who came as guests are now friends) and how we support the local community. We also do lots of weddings. It makes my day to give people good memories of such an important day. What is your favourite dish from your menus? At the Butterfactory it’s our Seafood Tasting Plate. It’s a light and fresh entree, using local seafood. It’s delicious. At the Woodbox Cafe, it’s the hamburger. I enjoy a good hamburger so we’re doing a fantastic burger there you’ve just got to taste it!

Jervis Bay

St Georges Basin - Sanctuary Point - Callala Bay - Callala Beach - Myola - Huskisson - Vincentia - Hyams Beach Jervis Bay measures about 15 km from north to south and about 10 km across. The main town is Huskisson, where you can enjoy dolphin and whale watching cruises, fishing trips and boats, but it’s the natural beauty of the area that seduces. Other towns in this area include St Georges Basin, Sanctuary Point, Callala Bay and Beach, Myola, Vincentia and Hyams Beach. The bay’s beaches are impressive a series of scalloped coves bracketed by rock formations and backed by blackbutt, tea tree and mahogany forest. The bay’s sparkling waters, the underwater topography of arches, caves and rock stacks, and an impressive marine population make this one of the finest dive sites in the state. At its southern end, Jervis Bay is enclosed by Booderee National Park, a

pristine coastal wilderness. From Wreck Bay village on Summercloud Bay in the park’s south, a walking trail circles the peninsula to St Georges Head, passing quiet beaches, cliffs and forests. Huskisson is the location of many facililties including the Lady Denman Heritage Museum, as well as a variety of great cafes and shops to explore. Hyams Beach is surrounded by natural bush and is far enough removed from the ‘rat-race’ to be as peaceful a retreat as one can imagine with the added attractions of pure white sand and crystal clear water.

This Easter in Ulladulla, experience something unique… as people come from far and wide to join the fun, colour and excitement of the ‘Blessing of the Fleet’ Festival. The 2012 Blessing of the Fleet Festival celebrations will be as impressive as ever, with the street parade on Easter Sunday, April 8 with its myriad of colourful floats and pipe bands. The parade will be followed by the pilgrimage to Ulladulla Harbour for the traditional blessing ceremony under the watchful eye of St Peter, Patron Saint of fisherman and the festival princesses. There will be an afternoon of entertainment and music, fun beach games, activities and a huge range of community displays, activities and exhibitions for all the family. The event—proudly sponsored by Coles Ulladulla and Shoalhaven City Council—will culminate in a fireworks display to light up the night sky above Ulladulla.

Emily Miller Beach © Tim Saunders

Lake Tabourie - Cullendulla Bawley Point - East Lynne - Termeil - Durras - Kioloa Steamships were once built here at Bawley Point. Much of the timber used in the construction of these ships came from Termeil timber; a horse drawn train was loaded with logs and it clip-clopped its way into Bawley Point to be sawn by the timber mill, built in 1910, and at one time employing 72 men. Visitors to Bawley Point or to neighbouring literary-sounding East Lynne can enjoy tranquil beaches, headlands and lagoons where the prawns are a local delicacy, in season. Much of the area here has been reserved as a sanctuary for wildlife. Warm currents extend the swimming season with miles of quiet beaches and headlands fronting the south Pacific Ocean, which is studded with attractive small islands. Behind the coastline lie the lakes of Termeil, Meroo and Willinga, where vegetation and

picturesque views create an idyllic setting to the backdrop of Pigeon House Mountain. The district offers all kinds of fishing, surfing and swimming for all ages. For the bushwalker there are interesting paths to take through the bush or the Kioloa Forest. While in the district, seek out the small roadside cafes and shops where some of the walls and counters are thick with show awards for pies, rolls, cakes and other mouth-watering goodies - all produced in country kitchens.

This park features beaches, rock platforms, spotted gum forests and rainforest gullies, surrounding the beautiful Durras Lake. The extensive forest in the park is home to many animals. Eastern grey kangaroos, swamp and red-necked wallabies can be seen at dawn and dusk when they feed. Stay in a caravan, cabin or tent and enjoy everything the park has to offer - from walking and picnicking to swimming and fishing. Don't forget to visit Murramarang Aboriginal Area.

Murramarang National Park

Cullendulla Creek Nature Reserve

Murramarang National Park was created in 1973, with an area of 1970 hectares. The park was divided, into two sections north and south of Durras Lake, and included four offshore islands. In 2002 the park was increased to 11,978 hectares and now includes Durras Lake.

The reserve is on the northern shore of Batemans Bay and has beautiful views across to the Tollgate Islands. Explore the mangroves along a raised boardwalk. The unusual dune formations here are known as cheniers and are of great scientific interest.

Lake Tabourie Tourist Parkk Choose Lake Tabourie Tourist Park for your next family holiday. Located between the lake and the beach, the park is ideal for those who enjoy all manner of outdoor water activities. Within the park guests will enjoy:

Horse Riding at Termeil 1 and 2 Hour Trail Rides
