Australia’s dinosaurs like you have never seen them before

SAND Sculpting Australia presents DINO; an exhibition that brings outdoor edutainment to a whole new level.

This summer Boneo Discovery Park will be transformed into Jurassic Park as 2,500 tons of sand are sculpted into four- meter- high Australian Dinosaurs, flanked by hand crafted life-size robotic replicas.

DINO will be a truly magical experiential learning experience,

that will allow kids of all ages to go beyond the initial dinosaur fascination to see the natural world in a whole new way. They can discover how fossils are formed, different rock formations, the age of the Earth and its changes over time, introducing ideas about evolution and extinction.

This open-air exhibition will be created by team of international awardwinning professional sand sculptures,

flown to the Mornington Peninsula from across the globe. Their work is breathtakingly intricate,capturing the imagination. The atmosphere is enhanced by life-size hand-made robotic Australian dinosaurs, that truly give a special other world feel to the whole experience.

Visitors to the park will also enjoy a host of activities including exploring the hedge mazes, giant chess, and outdoor games,jumping

castle, Bungee Trampoline,Rock Climbing Wall,Kids Train, Vintage Carousel,and new Suspended Ropes Course. All this included across 27 acres of wetlands and nature trails.

Parents will appreciate our licenced lake side cafe, that serves local produce and great coffee. Complete with an outdoor deck looking over the wetlands. It’s the perfect space to relax after a fun filled family day.

Boneo Discovery Park is only a short drive from Melbourne along the beautiful Mornington Peninsula coastline. The famous peninsula hot springs and St. Andrews Beach Brewery are close by, giving you all the opportunity needed for a truly enjoyable family day out.

Boneo Discovery Park is located at 695 Limestone Rd, Fingal, contact or phone 5988 6385.

Tee up a pure golf experience at St Andrews Beach Golf Course

ST Andrews Beach Golf Course needs little introduction. It’s a course that continues to captivate and stun golfers from the moment they set foot onto the first tee. Visually superb and architecturally sublime, the St Andrews Beach layout lends itself perfectly to the sprawling coastal terrain.

The golf course is set amongst sweeping sand dunes and sits effortlessly atop the breath-taking

undulating landscape, providing an unforgettable public golf experience - arguable the finest in Australia.

Recent years have seen St Andrews Beach achieve a cultlike following, thanks in part to the incredible natural design imparted by internationally renowned architect Tom Doak who is also responsible for the globally acclaimed Barnbougle Dunes and Cape Kidnappers golf courses.

Tom Doak’s timeless course design is both beloved by locals whilst continuing to allure visitors to the Mornington Peninsula from all corners of Australia, and indeed the world.

The course itself provides an unforgettable composition of holes and consistently impeccable playing conditions which will leave an eternal impression.

Golfers can take advantage of the

venue’s brand-new fleet of motorised golf carts as well as attractive pre-paid discounts available for midweek play.

Players can also enjoy refreshments before or after their round in the rustic licensed Pro Shop which offers a delicious selection of light snacks as well as seating in the undercover alfresco area. Additionally, the course is situated just minutes from the St Andrews Beach Brewery

which is a constant hit with players

All of these factors naturally combine to have truly elevated St Andrews Beach to the lofty heights of a golfing mecca.

Unlike many elite courses of similar ilk, St Andrews Beach Golf Course is open to the public 7 days a week.

St Andrews Beach Golf Course is located at 209 Sandy Road, Fingal. Phone 5988 6000.

The Chatty Café Scheme comes to the Mornington Peninsula!

THE Chatty Café Scheme is a perfect way for communities to connect and reconnect and enjoy a friendly chat in a safe space over a cup of coffee (or drink of choice).

In these post-Covid times many Australians have expressed feelings of loneliness and social isolation and the Scheme aims to combat that ‘one coffee and one chat at a time’.

The Chatty Café Scheme believes that ‘Kindness changes community’ and this is a very simple way for each of us to spread a little kindness whilst also making new connections and helping our neighbours.

The Scheme has a growing number of venues on the Mornington Peninsula and their goal is to have a ‘Have a Chat Table’ in as many venues as possible over the coming months and years.

Participating venues include commercial cafes, libraries and community centres and they are always looking for new venues where people gather to meet and share the company of others.

The Scheme currently has one school signed up, the first in the world, and they are launching a pilot project for Aged Care facilities in the Mornington Area. Plans are underway to encourage local Retirement Villages to sign up and there has been interest from Mornington RSL. Men’s Shed and local churches are also being approached to see if they would like to partner with the scheme in some way to help spread the word and attract new participants and chatty volunteers. The Chatty Cafe Scheme is also exploring ways to provide transport to interested participants who may not be able to access local venues easily.

Interested venues can register on the Chatty Café website and once signed up they are featured on Chatty Cafe’s Facebook page and website. Theses venues also receive a monthly newsletter and are occasionally featured in local media, such as local radio and newspapers.

Participants come in all shapes and sizes. Chatty Cafe’s mantra is ‘Everyone is Welcome’. Many of the existing Chatty Volunteers came along out of interest to a session and then expressed a wish to become more involved.

The Scheme provides some basic training, joins participants with an experienced volunteer and allocates them to a venue. They ask for a weekly commitment, if possible, but as they grow their own volunteer community, there is always someone willing to step in an ‘cover a shift’ if a volunteer is not able to host their table for whatever reason. Volunteers have reported feeling the wonderful benefits of being a Chatty Volunteer upon their own mental and sometimes physical health and it really is a ‘winwin’ for all concerned.

Local residents as well as visitors to the Peninsula just type in ‘Mornington Peninsula’ when visiting the website and they will see a map as well as drop down menu which lists days and times of participating venues. Over the coming months Chatty Cafe is hoping to get more and more venues across the peninsula signed up to the scheme so that all can enjoy a coffee and a chat inside and outdoors in our wonderful Australian summer.

Please feel free to contact Regional Manager, Jacky Howgate, on 0416860239, via email on mornpen@ or look out for her white Kia Sportage complete with Chatty Café stickers as she

makes her way around the Peninsula promoting this surprisingly simple yet effective scheme to ward off loneliness and social isolation and to spread a little kindness and joy to help build stronger communities.

Championship golf course and resort paradise

MOONAH Links is arguably one of the most comprehensive golf resorts in Victoria. Just 90 minutes from Melbourne on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, Moonah Links is situated in the heart of the Cups Country, a region renowned for golf and drawing favourable comparisons to the Monterey Coast in California.

With the beautiful Mornington Peninsula being a source of inspiration in the creation of Moonah Links, the resort was designed to compliment, rather than dominate the beauty of this landscape.

Peter Thomson used the ancient, undulating dunes and natural contours of this land to shape and design the now famous Open Course, which played host to the Australian Open Golf Championship in 2003 and 2005, the Moonah Classic in

2008, 2009, 2010 and 2020, and the Victoria PGA Championship in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Measuring 6783 metres, the Open Course is a natural stadium layout with wide undulating fairways of pure couch grass, punctuated with pot bunkers and leading onto large multitiered greens, making this course a true test for all levels of golfer.

If one Championship Course isn’t enough, we also have the Legends. The Legends Course stands as a tribute to past champions who have contributed to the rich history of Australian Golf. In contrast to The Open Course, which was purpose built to challenge the modern champion, the Legends Course is a more friendly golfing experience for players of all ages and abilities. At 6,320 metres, the course is a loop

of 18 holes that generally follow the valleys through a variety of landscapes ranging from ancient Moonah Woodlands to open links land. The fairways are generous and the putting surfaces gentle, but the bunkering style is bold and wild in appearance. Golfers are in luck with the sandy soil of the Mornington Peninsula rewarding us with yearround playability!

Moonah Links Resort might be known for its award-winning championship golf courses but whether you’re playing golf or not you’ll be made welcome. This is also a resort paradise where everyone is embraced.

In the clubhouse, Spike Bar is the place for coffee, drinks, and casual dining. Pull up a plush leather seat and take in the stunning views of the 18th fairway while enjoying a

cocktail made using locally distilled spirits. The extensive drinks list caters for all tastes, including a selection of non-alcoholic drinks.

Pebbles restaurant is where the culinary magic happens. Head Chef, Dipen Patel brings an international flair to his a la cart menu. Dipen relishes in offering diners with the best seasonal produce, meat and seafood prepared with great thought and care. You might find dishes flavoured with traditional Indian spices that reflect Dipen’s heritage, or fresh herbs and garnishes such as saltbush or nasturtium from the Moonah Links’ very own kitchen garden. Forget any limited notion you have of ‘golf club dining’. Moonah Links is taking things to new heights. For a relaxing getaway, book into our luxury accommodation. Moonah

Links offers 70 deluxe rooms and suites, all with balconies or terraces overlooking the stunning golf courses or central putting green. Each room features natural materials, clean lines and earthy Australian tones with the stylish furnishings and fittings. The natural harmony of the outdoor setting has been brought indoors with the architecturally designed rooms echoing the landscape.

Moonah Links is open 7 days a week and open to all. Come for a casual lunch, drinks with friends, family dinner, a relaxing holiday or a round of golf. What ever it is you’re after, we will see you at Moonah Links.

Moonah Links is located at Peter Thomson Drive, Fingal Victoria. Phone: 03 5988 2000

Santa makes it to the beach on time

SANTA’S now traditional annual arrival (by inflatable boat) at Mornington Life Saving Club happened right on cue on Sunday, much to the relief of children eagerly awaiting his appearance.

The presence on the beach of Santa (aka John Scott) was especially appreciated by lifesavers Isaac McConnell and Jack Matthew who were able to convert their flag skills to racing for a lollipop.

By-election follows Mercurio’s state win

A BY-ELECTION will be held by March next year to fill the vacancy on Mornington Peninsula Shire Council by Paul Mercurio, who is now the MP for Hastings.

Mercurio won the seat for Labor at last month’s state election, ending 16 years of continuous Liberal representation by Neale Burgess, who did not seek re-election.

Just days after Mercurio’s win was confirmed, he was rushed to hospital

and underwent surgery for atrial fibrillation, a heart condition that causes irregular, sometimes rapid, heart beats.

Late last week he was discharged from hospital and had posted a short video on Facebook as he waited to be checked by surgeons and “hopefully” allowed to home to rest and “get stuff ready for parliament”.

Widely known for a starring role in Baz Lurhmann’s successful 1992 movie Strictly Ballroom, Mercurio played the seemingly prophetically named character, Scott Hastings.

Mercurio was elected to council in

late 2020 and voluntarilly stood down to contest the state election on 13 July, which means that until the by-election result is known his Watson Ward constituents will not have had any direct representation in council for nine months.

The then mayor Cr Anthony Marsh said he would be available to Watson Ward residents and now the new mayor, Cr Steve Holland, has said that they are welcome to contact him or deputy mayor Debra Mar.

Holland, a member of the Liberal Party, said was “looking forward to

working with all of our newly elected MPs on the outcomes that matter to our community”.

The Liberal candidate for Hastings Briony Hutton received more first preference votes than Mercurio, but lost on a two party preferred basis, which saw the Labor candidate win the seat 51.35% to 48.65%.

In a Facebook post while votes were still being counted, Hutton said she expected Greens preferences to flow Labor’s way but “the good news” was that more people in Hastings voted Liberal than Labor.

She would have still run as the Liberal candidate even if she had known the outcome “for I have met so many wonderful people and learned so much along the way”.

Her campaign manager, Simone Clencie (described by Hutton as “the star behind the scenes”), also took to Facebook saying to how deeply disappointed” she had been at “the constant harassment, propaganda and down right hateful comments thrown at you from the general public, to our Labor opponents and the local media”.

Cliff path to stay closed indefinitely

THE future of the Beleura cliff walking track at Mornington has never been under threat as much as it is now since it was opened 100 years ago.

Now closed indefinitely because of ongoing landslides, further assessments, including drainage from nearby properties, are underway.

Part of the track was temporarily closed in September after safety concerns were raised by Mornington Peninsula Shire engineers.

Since then, other landslides have swept away part of the track and the entire path has been closed.

The mayor Cr Steve Holland said closing the track was “unfortunate, but safety obviously has to be our priority”.

“We have commissioned a further assessment of the path, which will include examining drainage from nearby properties, and will keep the community fully informed of the outcome,” he said.

A “community meeting” has been scheduled this week between Friends of the Beleura Cliff path community group, Holland, Crs Despi O’Connor and Anthony Marsh, infrastructure and planning director Mike McIntosh and other shire staff.

Holland said swimming pools would also be discussed at the meeting.

He said, “all pools get inspected under the state government’s new safety regime; however, I don’t know when these particular [infinity] pools were last inspected”.

Problems with landslides blocking and sometimes completely sweeping away the

track are not new, with it being closed in 2004, 2010 and 2013.

Talks between the shire and the residents’ group were held in 2015, two years after the track was closed in 2013 (“Cliff track talks” The News 7/12/15).

At that stage, the state government gave the shire $50,000 to fix the problem whichthe same as now - was blamed on stormwater drainage coming from properties above the track. Then MP for Mornington David Morris said the money fell short of what was needed to fix the problem.

This time around Beleura Cliff path community group member Peter Nicholson estimates it might cost $15 million to rebuild the path, based on the amount of money eventually spent to fix part of the track after the 2013 landslide.

Nicholson is certain his estimate “doesn't overstate the cost”.

The shire received a report in 2004 which identified four main stormwater drains which put rainwater onto the cliff, creating the potential for landslips. Landslips then occurred in 2010 and 2013 (“Pressure on cliff track” The News 28/9/15).

The path group was heartened in October this year when the shire said it hoped to reopen the path by summer following the September landslide and would investigate strengthening protective walls along the Beleura cliff (“Summer opening for cliff path) The News 3/10/22).

But that plan may yet again have been eroded and wrecked by the cliff’s instability.

THE latest landslide that included the Beleura cliff track came to rest on the beach. Picture: Supplied

Telehealth could help ease home care crisis

A HOME care provider that delivers services on the Mornington Peninsula says the current home care crisis could be alleviated by more people accessing the telehealth option.

Floyd Gomes, who runs Atticus Health, says many peninsula residents are still waiting for home care, with providers Mecwacare and Bolton Clark struggling to find staff since taking over the service from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council earlier this year.

“The feedback we get from our own home care managers is that those affected by the service handover and continued lack of personnel are still experiencing very long waits for services,” he said.

“To tackle this, they've been told to keep calling the providers Mecwacare and Bolton Clarke to ask them to escalate the issue. However, there is a very long wait on the phone to get through.”

Gomes, whose Atticus Regional Medicentre in Hastings recently won the council’s health and community award, said empowering clients to connect directly with their own GPs via video telehealth was making a significant impact to his clients.

Under the telehealth model, home

care clients are supported to have video appointments with their regular doctors, who already have knowledge of the clients’ health and medical needs.

While its suitability depended on services required, it could reduce the length of waiting lists, he said.

In 2021, the COVID-related Medicare funding was expanded to allow continued access to telehealth appointments, including to those receiving in-home care, provided the necessary equipment and staff capability were available to support telehealth services.

There are four levels of home care packages, with federal government subsidies ranging from $9000 a year to more than $52,000.

A range of health care providers can provide telehealth services, including GPs, nurses, specialists and consultant physicians, allied health providers, and mental health professionals.

Gomes said clients were able to get quality care in most instances with increased flexibility and service choice through telehealth, but that the current poor integration between many home care and health care providers meant it was not being utilised well.

“What we are doing to bridge this issue in an innovative way is using telehealth with a GP while the home care worker is present at a patient's home, to facilitate that integration.

Telehealth has an excellent role to play here,” he said.

Gomes said research showed that 92 per cent of elderly people wanted to stay in their homes, “but hardly anyone gets to do that”.

Peninsula home care clients have been caught in the middle of the former Morrison government’s decision to move home care servicing to private providers (“Home care crisis after switch to private providers” The News 4/7/22).

Because of delays transferring information about clients to the private providers Mecwacare and Bolton Clarke, many clients missed out on vital support for up to six months, and some say they still do not know when that help will come.

Staff shortages in the aged care and home care sectors is further delaying support for clients.

The Centre for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA) says the country is facing a shortage of at least 110,000 direct aged-care workers within the next decade unless urgent action is taken to boost the workforce.

However, Dr Annie Banbury, head of clinical research at telehealth platform Coviu, has told the media that uptake of telehealth is still low, and that more training is needed to support more aged care staff in transitioning to a 21st century model of care.

Hollows full of promise

MEMBERS of Hastings SES were surprised to find rescuing two fluffy chicks was all part of clearing a fallen tree in Bittern.

After being called out to the traffic hazard on Wednesday 14 December the members noticed one chick on the footpath and one inside a hollow in the tree.

Both birds are reportedly doing well under the care of a registered wildlife carer, but it also prompted the SES to remind the community that tree

hollows are an important commodity for wildlife.

Many species use tree hollows for safety, shelter and nesting, from possums and sugar gliders to parrots, ducks, and bats.

The tree hollow in this instance was very deep, which is the preferred type of hollow for some parrots.

Anyone who finds injured or orphaned wildlife can call Wildlife Victoria on 8400 7300.

Objections delay hospitality staff plan

THE future of a $10 million plan to ease the southern Mornington Peninsula’s crippling staffing shortages by building worker accommodation in Sorrento will not be decided until the new year.

A permit for the 34-bedroom former aged care home Sorrento Lodge in Beach Road to be turned into worker accommodation was approved by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council in February, but progress halted when objectors concerned about traffic, noise and neighbourhood character took the matter to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT).

The state government has now called in the matter because of issues raised during the VCAT hearings over policy and planning objectives, with Planning Minister Sonya Kilkenny referring the matter to a priority standards advisory


Suze Jones from Sorrento Lodge said it was disappointing that the accommodation would not be ready in time for summer.

“We just want it up and running, there is a such a need for employees to be able to stay down here to work,” she said.

Jones said the lodge would benefit so many, and the staff accommodation model could set a precedent to resolve widespread staffing shortages.

About half of the 77 beds in the proposed worker accommodation development are expected be taken up by staff working at the redeveloped InterContinental Hotel, with the rest available to other employers.

Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Steve Holland said the council was “acutely aware” of how difficult it was for some businesses to attract staff because of the shortage of affordable housing.

“We have been advocating to the state govern-

ment for policy changes that would encourage the provision of key worker accommodation to safeguard local jobs and businesses,” he said.

“The Sorrento Lodge proposal would go some way towards easing the situation, which is a significant problem on the southern peninsula. We await the planning minister’s decision.”

Developers Trenerry Property hope to develop the former Sorrento Lodge into affordable accommodation for workers because of difficulty attracting staff for the busy summer periods.

The company, which has joined Victor Smorgon Group and the Kanat Group on the Sorrento project, also recently bought the mid-century Burnham Beeches in the Dandenongs, and owns the InterContinental Hotel, Sorrento.

Sorrento Lodge, in Ocean Beach Road, has been closed for three years, but once redeveloped will provide basic accommodation for workers for around $35-40 a night – or about $280 a week.

Decision saves family from homelessness

PENINSULA Community Legal Centre has welcomed a decision by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal that could help protect renters facing eviction in the toughest rental market Victoria has ever seen.

VCAT has refused to grant a possession order to a landlord who wanted to sell an investment property with vacant possession, because to do so would effectively render a family of five homeless.

Importantly, the renters had not breached their tenancy agreement. They had also attempted to find alternative accommodation but, because of the tight rental market and the general economic climate, there was nothing suitable available.

“The VCAT decision recognises the impact that Victoria’s rental crisis is having on renters who are unable to find affordable alternative rentals when their landlord decides to sell up”, said Ash Galvin, the manager of PCLC’s tenancy practice.

“In weighing up the competing interests of the rental provider and the tenants and the impact of a possession order on each of them, the tribunal found that it was not reasonable and proportionate in the circumstances to make a family of five homeless”.

PCLC is seeing an increased number of clients who are facing eviction or experiencing homelessness across Melbourne’s south-east with many being forced to sleep in their cars, tents or couch surf. An estimated 1000 people are sleeping rough in the community on the Mornington Peninsula alone.

PCLC CEO Jackie Galloway said renters were on the frontline of Victoria’s cost of living crisis.

“More renters are being pushed into homelessness because they can’t find a rental they can afford. Many of our clients give up after making up to 100 applications for a home,” she said.

PCLC is hoping the VCAT decision will mean

that more tenants will be able to remain in their current rentals in situations where they would face homelessness due to the lack of affordable housing.

Ninety-six per cent of the almost 1000 clients PCLC assisted through its tenancy and advocacy program over the past 12 months experienced financial disadvantage.

Galvin said that with the scarcity of housing across Victoria and the cost of living crisis expected to worsen, the rental crisis was only going to get more serious for local tenants.

“We would encourage anyone who is facing eviction from their property and would like free legal advice to get in touch with PCLC to see whether we can help,” he said.

“Together, we made a conscious choice not to answer ‘those’ questions around your personal beliefs, from the local media and others who sought to do harm rather than genuinely understand. It was undignified and beneath you Briony,” Clencie wrote.

The News was one of several media organisations that unsuccessfully sought comment from Hutton (and later Clencie) about her links to church groups and Liberal Upper House candidate Renee Heath, a member of the City Builders Church who Liberal leader Mathew Guy had said would be banned from the party room if elected (“Liberals full of promise, all quiet on Labor front” The News 10/10/22).

Heath was elected and the ban has since been overturned.

“We are a nation of Christians, Muslims, Catholics, Hindus and non-believers. Your beliefs Briony are one of mutual respect, interest and understanding. Not hate, nor judgement. To those who tried and continue to sow conflict, they choose to destroy instead of to build. Shame on them,” Clencie’s post continued.

Elsewhere on the peninsula Nepean was won by Liberal Sam Groth, after being held for one term by Labor’s Chris Brayne; and Liberal Chris Crewther won Mornington, held by fellow Liberal David Morris since 2006 (“Turf war splits peninsula Liberals” The News 22/8/22).

Kate Lardner, who stood as an independent in Mornington, received 22.42% of first preference votes, ahead of Labor’s Georgia Fowler, 21.98%, but lost to Crewther by 1.4% after distribution of preferences.

“We see victory not in crossing the finish line first, but in giving people in our community hope for a better way of doing politics,” Lardner said, adding that her team had “achieved a significant shift in our community towards active democracy”.

“But we still have much work to do in engaging people further, for future elections.

“I'm not sure what will come out of this movement we have created, but I look forward to being a part of it and seeing where it ends up.”

Gardens open for inspection

OPEN Gardens Victoria in January will open two private Mornington Peninsula gardens—Karkalla, Sorrento and Samantha, Portsea, created by landscape designer Fiona Brockhoff.

Karkalla is the coastal property of Brockhoff and partner David Swann built on a tertiary dune with views of Port Phillip and Bass Strait and abutting the Mornington Peninsula National Park.

The garden and its 1950s-inspired beach house designed by architect Thomas Isaksson blend with their coastal setting.

“During my twenty-five years of landscape design, my values have remained consistent: relating the garden to the site and surroundings, building functional spaces that are relevant to the needs of the owners, and creating beautiful gardens that are also practical,” Brockhoff said.

The property includes a kitchen garden, orchard, topiary displays, a garden for bees as well as sculptures.

A portion of proceeds from the Karkalla opening will be donated to the Peninsula Hospice.

Ten minutes down the road, Samantha is described as a family coastal retreat on a lowlying site adjacent to the Portsea lagoon. Recently featured on the ABC’s Dream Gardens, and with a swimming pool as its focal point, the garden “celebrates” local indigenous plant species and selected non-natives.

Owner Jim Woods wanted the garden to capture his memories of days on the Portsea back beach, walking through the dunes with a surfboard and his wife Sam’s wish to create a more lush, enclosed retreat, all the while providing a garden that caters to the family’s recreation needs.

The two gardens that will be open 10am4.30pm Saturday 7 January and Sunday 8 January are Karkalla, 10 Keating Avenue Sorrento and Samantha, 4 Lagoon Court Portsea. Adults $15, students $11, under-18 free. Tickets at the gate or via TryBooking.

Summer beach restrictions

INVESTIGATIONS are being made into the stability and profile of the foreshore around Fishermans beach, Mornington.

Meanwhile, a section of the popular beach will remain out of bounds to the public.

Cr Steve Holland said an “options report” was due early in the new year and the “exclusion zone will remain in place for the time being”.

He said any works to correct the failing retaining wall and slope stability were likely to take six to 12 months.

Foundation looks to ‘smaller parties’ for ocean clean up

CLEAN Ocean Foundation will continue to push for sewage and wastewater be reused after being made safe for human consumption, rather than pumped into the ocean near Gunnamatta surf beach.

The foundation believes it can “work with” the Greens and the Legalise Cannabis Party to achieve its aims even though their pre-state election plan was not endorsed by any Labor candidates or MPs.

Foundation CEO John Gemmell said the two smaller parties “now have the balance of power in the Upper House [and] both were open to an evidence-based discussion about our proposal”.

Melbourne Water, which operates the outfall at Gunnamatta, has not commented on the foundation’s proposal for a $60 million upgrade to the South Eastern Treatment plant at Bangholme.

The foundation says the “treated” wastewater pumped daily through the south eastern outfall is wasted and in 2019-2020 contained 3.5 million kilograms of nutrients, according to the National Outfall Database.

Meanwhile, signs warning of health dangers to swimmers have been removed from the beach at Gunnamatta. The signs were placed at the beach


Melbourne Water on Friday 2 December told Gemmill that the treatment plant had returned to “normal operation” and that water quality at Gunnamatta and beaches close to the Boags Rocks outfall were “no longer being impacted”.

“I know we can take a lot of learnings from the recent event, and we can make further improvements to our operations in the future,” Andrew Mellor, Melbourne Water’s team leader community engagement, customer and strategy, said.

“In regard to the current situation, Melbourne Water will continue to monitor the area and we will continue to keep the community informed should the situation change again.”

Gemmill has suggested that future warning signs should include an icon for surfing.

“I really think this is a serious over-

sight, given the beach is very popular for surfing,” Gemmill told Melbourne Water. “I know it sounds unbelievable, but the reality is some surfers have said to us that because it doesn't specifically identify surfers, there's not a risk to them.”

Meanwhile, a buoy moored outside of the surf zone off Boags Rocks records wind speed and direction, ocean current, temperature, pH and salinity but not whether the water is safe for swimming or surfing.

Melbourne Water says the data collected from the buoy “informs planning how to manage recycled water while maintaining the biodiversity of our marine environment”.

The buoy has an automatic identification system, GPS monitoring device and a flashing light at night so it can be seen, and vessels can safely navigate the zone.

Melbourne Water intends installing signs to let people know the buoy is there and avoid it being mistaken for a vessel or someone needing help.

Flood risk sinks sound shell plan

THE much anticipated Hastings foreshore sound shell concept has been scrapped due to state government concerns over flooding risks and rising sea levels.

The community-led proposal to build an entertainment sound shell has been part of a revised foreshore precinct for several years, but the plan has been left out of the just-released new Hastings foreshore master plan.

Shire mayor Cr Steve Holland said that while plans for a sound shell were “not supported” by the state government due to the flood risks, there was provision in the master plan for an open events area.

“We have ensured the Hastings foreshore master plan includes a large open area set aside for events such as concerts, markets and community festivals,” he said.

“During our recent consultation with the community on the draft master plan, the concept of a flexible events area was welcomed by the majority of those we spoke to.”

A council drop-in session on an outdoor entertainment structure in 2019 showed widespread support for the sound shell plan, with proponents hoping it could be used for school sports, local events and displays, the Westernport Festival, Carols by Candlelight and other occasional larger scale events.

Drone helps track alleged burglar


Sergeant Pat Hayes from Mornington police deployed the drone after a call about a suspected burglary in Elm Court about 10.15am.

The Seaford man was located and arrested. Police believe they were able to identify an accomplice.

Stay safe on the road

OPERATION Roadwise started on the Mornington Peninsula last Friday (16 December) and runs until midnight 27 December.

The operation aims to reduce road trauma over the Christmas period and will see an increased police presence on the roads, targeting speed, impaired driving, fatigue and distraction.

Pictured, above, are members from Hastings

police on Frankston-Flinders Road, Hastings on Sunday evening.

Almost 200 drivers were tested, and none tested positive to alcohol.

Fast food pick-up

A FAST food snack turned out to be the downfall of a driver in Hastings on 12 December, after he was breathalysed and returned a reading of 0.246 – more than four times the legal limit.

Around 7pm, police were notified of an erratic vehicle that was almost involved in several collisions.

Police located the vehicle in the McDonalds car park in Hastings.

The driver returned a positive reading on a preliminary breath test and accompanied police back to the Hastings police station for a further breath test which returned a result of 0.236.

The man’s licence was immediately suspended, and his vehicle impounded at a cost of $1170. He will be summoned to appear at the

Magistrates Court at a later date.

Too many workers face this every day It’s never ok

Christmas thanks go to water people

PEOPLE in need on the Mornington Peninsula and beyond will receive a helping hand this Christmas with South East Water employees raising almost $12,000 through their annual appeal.

The Christmas Giving Appeal supported three charities – including Ford For Change in Mount Martha and Clayton, and Seaford-based Mums Supporting Families in Need (MSFIN) - to provide food, clothing, clean drinking water and health care.

MSFIN marketing and fundraising manager Kim Michod said it was exciting to see donations of toys, clothes and essential food hampers left under the organisation’s Christmas tree to be distributed.

“Thanks to the employees at South East Water for their generous support. Without the help of our community, we can’t continue to support vulnerable families in need,” she said.

“The food hampers will go out to families to give some Christmas cheer, and the toys will be a special something under the tree on Christmas morning.”

South East Water employees have been supporting MSFIN at Christmas for 10 years. Employees also supported Food for Change, which grows fresh produce on farms in Clayton and Mount Martha for food relief organisations around Australia.

Support goes beyond South East Wa-

ter’s service area to Purple House, an Aboriginal-led charity providing access to clean drinking water to enable dialysis services across remote parts of central Australia.

“I'm really proud of the support we’ve been able to provide our

three chosen charities, giving back to those who do a great job in helping our customers and community access the essentials we can sometimes take for granted: food, clothing, clean drinking water and healthcare,” South East

Water managing director Lara Olsen said.

“It’s the charities that lead and undertake this incredible work, day in and day out.

“We’re happy to help in the small way we can.”

Beach clean-up begins in March

THE owners of water left for storage at Mornington Peninsula beaches may early next year be wondering where they have gone, especially between Blairgowrie and Sorrento.

Mornington Peninsula Shire and Whitecliffs management committee have joined forces to remove kayaks, dinghies and yachts being stored illegally on beaches and foreshores.

The clean-up will begin in March.

“Our foreshores are public spaces where everyone is welcome. Removal of unauthorised watercraft will enable healthy foreshore environments and ensure everyone can continue to enjoy these public spaces into the future,” the mayor Cr Steve Holland said.

He said some of the watercraft had been stored for many years, leading to trampled dune systems, as well as littered, buried and abandoned boats and equipment.

The Community Amenity Local Law 2022 bans anything from being stored or leave on council land without permission.

“This issue of watercraft on the foreshore in Nepean Ward is something that is raised every year by our community and visitors and was identified as a key concern during community consultation for the Sorrento Coastal and Marine Management Plan,” Cr Susan Bissinger said.

"We’re looking forward to working with the community to ensure our foreshores are beautiful, accessible, safe and with no loss of amenity.”

Lifejackets are life savers

A MAN whose five-year-old son was thrown into Western Port when their boat capsized in 2017 has joined Life Saving Victoria’s to remind boaters to wear lifejackets.

Stranded in open water for more than one hour, Nathan Hardinge, his son Darcy and his then-28-year-old nephew Matthew Stringer, managed to stay afloat thanks to their lifejackets, which enable them to raise the alarm for help by deploying a radio beacon and lighting a flare.

The trio, from The Basin, had been gummyshark fishing around 11.15pm when their 5.5 metre boat struck a sandbar on their way back to Stony Point and partially sank.

“A lifejacket is the single most important piece of safety equipment on a recreational vessel, and wearing one while boating isn’t just recommended, it’s legislated,” Hardinge said.

“It’s a chilling thought, but if we didn’t have lifejackets on, we wouldn’t be here today. There’s no reason not to wear a lifejacket or have a way to call for help. If you have to learn that the hard way, chances are it will be too late.”

Life Saving Victoria has just released the 2021–22 drowning report, detailing the second consecutive year of a high number of drownings in Victorian waters.

Karting home the titles

MOUNT Martha 12-year-old Mathew Basso travels the country to race go karts.

Basso has just wrapped up the 2022 karting race season by taking out the six-race Victorian country series, which saw competitors travel all around state.

The win adds this title to his Australasian Kart Title, Ultimate Club Racer Title, second place in the Northern Territory championships, second in the Junior Top Guns State Cup and his first place at the Oakleigh Club championships.

Basso competes against racers up to 16 years in the KA4 Junior Light Class, where they race 100cc engines and reach speeds of up to 110kph all while sitting just a few centimetres above the asphalt. In 2023, he will compete in the Australian Karting Championships against Australia’s best karters.

Carols at the cove

THE owners’ corporation for Martha Cove marina village will hold family-friendly Christmas carols 6pm to 9pm on Thursday 22 December.

Corporation secretary Chris Delamore said it would be the first of more community events planned for the community.

Santa will make an appearance to spread some festive cheer.

Delamore urged residents to join the celebrations and get to know the neighbours as carols are performed by Cherry and Sherry.

The owners corporation is also holding fireworks on New Year’s Eve, in conjunction with Martha Cove Yacht Squadron and Engine Property Group.

There were 53 drownings between 1 July 2021 and 30 June 2022, 10 more than the decade’s average. A further 111 people survived non-fatal incidents which were attended by paramedics.

The report found that people were not wearing lifejackets in 55 per cent of boating-related drownings during the past decade, and that they were worn incorrectly in a further 23 per cent of deaths.

Inland waterways were once again named the most dangerous aquatic environments in Victoria, with 40 per cent of all drownings occurring in rivers, creeks, streams, or lakes – 48 per cent more than the 10-year average – while drownings that occurred while boating or fishing at those locations increased by 50 per cent.

The number of drownings involving people aged 65 and older doubled when compared to the 10-year average, with males aged 65 and older making up almost one third of all drownings reported in Victoria this year.

There has also been a steady increase in the number of females drowning, with the drown-

ing rate for females now 19 per cent higher than the past decade’s average. The increase also included children aged four years and younger, where the drowning rate of girls was double the 10-year average - the largest increase seen across all groups this year.

LSV’s manager research and evaluation Dr Hannah Calverley said that despite slightly fewer fatalities than last year’s record 61, the reality was that 53 people drowned this year and “that’s 53 too many”.

“This is the second consecutive year that the Victorian drowning toll has bucked what had otherwise been a downward trend. We’re urging Victorians to be vigilant around water to help put an end to drownings and prevent further tragedy.”

Emergency Management Commissioner Andrew Crisp said Victoria had grappled with rising drowning tolls in recent years, as evidenced within the report.

“Safety must be the number one priority for people when they’re out enjoying our waterways,” he said.

“Safety is a shared responsibility and people must understand their risks when they’re in and around water.”

Safe Transport Victoria manager recreational boating safety Gareth Johnson. Said that included ensuring they’re wearing the correct, properly fitted, and well-maintained lifejacket for their chosen activity.

“There’s a bit of a misconception that lifejackets get in the way, but that simply isn’t the case; there’s a lifejacket for every occasion and modern styles are comfortable and easy to wear,” he said.

Some water safety tips include:

Always wear an appropriate, well-maintained, and well-fitted lifejacket when boating and fishing, and have a way to raise the alarm if you need help.

Wherever possible, swim with a friend at patrolled locations during patrolled times, including between the red and yellow flags at beaches.

Actively supervise children around water, keeping under-fives within arm’s reach and under 10s in eyesight.

Check the weather conditions before entering the water and leave alcohol or other drugs until after out of the water.

INTRIGUINGLY unassuming from the street, this surprisingly spacious home has been carefully renovated and extended to now double its original footprint. The works were carried out with a commitment to functionality whilst maintaining the integrity of that classic beach home feel where welcome natural light fills the internal spaces to create fresh and bright family zones. Blackbutt timber floors feature to two separate living areas and four good sized bedrooms with carpeted floors provide the space for a family of any

size or age. To bring the outside in, the front living area has bi-fold windows that open out to the front deck making for a great summertime vibe and maximising those coastal breezes. Natural light continues to be a consistent feature throughout the home as it expands towards the second living space; once again, the scope of the home is increased with access out to a large rear deck. The four bedrooms all have ceiling fans and include the private master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe, whilst to the three other bedrooms

are built-in robes and shared access to the spacious family bathroom with separate bath and shower. There is also a separate powder room for guests. This elegantly comfortable coastal retreat sprawls across a low-maintenance 899 square metre block with landscaped gardens front and back and in addition to the single garage, there is ample off-street parking for four cars plus boats and trailers.n

SEVEN, 7pm

This Disney animation is a mythic adventure set in the South Pacific 2000 years ago. The heroine is Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho), a teenager who sets out on a daring mission to save her people when a crisis hits their island. Along the way she meets smug demigod Maui (a scene-stealing Dwayne Johnson), who learns a thing or two from his teenage protégé. Together, they sail across the ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds.

Joaquin Phoenix gravitates towards unusual roles, and writer-director Spike Jonze (Adaptation) revels in the weird and wonderful, so they make the perfect match in this dark drama. Phoenix is mesmerising as awkward writer Theodore Twombly, a man who is dealing with the breakup of his marriage to Catherine (Rooney Mara) but finds his life turning around for the better when he bonds with his new artificial intelligence purchase (voiced by Scarlett Johansson).

Supermarket etiquette can make a shopper’s day

I am a female, not very tall, and now rather elderly. There are many kindly men and women in the supermarket who pick up goods from the shelf when it is too high for me to reach and others who let me through a doorway first as I have a walking stick. I always thank these courteous people for whatever they have done.

However, there are also many incidents when a shopper, maybe a middle aged woman with a frenetic look in her eyes or, more commonly, a man, often a lot taller than I am, knocks me with his arm or even his hip as he strides past.

I automatically say “Oh, sorry” as they continue on, either not caring or simply oblivious to having collided with me.

Sometimes I can’t help myself saying to their backs “oh, that’s ok, I know you didn’t mean to bump me”. I have had some varied and funny reactions.

One day, I wanted a tub of margarine. A thirtyish couple were standing in front of the margarine shelves, arguing about which brand they wanted. I waited for a minute and a half and then said, “Excuse me, could I please get some margarine?” They separated and allowed me in, said not a word, then resumed arguing loudly about margarine.

The mayor [Cr Steve Holland] said he would “escalate” the service request; all I was asking for was the contractor to do the job it is paid to do.

Please lift your game, the standards of service have dropped materially, and that’s not even talking about potholes. Kevin Clarke, Mornington

Capital opinion

Last week l sent you a letter re VMC (Victorian Maritime Centre, Crib Point) which you published, thankyou (“Centre sends SOS” Letters 13/12/22).

Unfortunately, you altered the opening times, it should read 10am-3pm, also you used lower case on Merchant Navy. l have checked the letter l sent and would like a correction printed please.

Liberal majority

Over the past couple of weeks, the letter pages seem to be full of writers bemused by the Liberal Party’s wins on the western side of the Mornington Peninsula.

of the minimum wage, criticism of socialism, and repeal of Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975. It also rejects large parts of climate science. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Robo apology

Sometimes it’s best to apologise, move on, and remind yourself against jumping to conclusions. It turns out my old mate, who I jokingly refer to as Blind Freddy (no disrespect intended) replied, when I suggested our former prime minister Scott Morrison not only shattered the careers of many public servants but surely was well aware of the illegality of robodebt? Said Freddy, bless him: “Is the Pope a Catholic?” Cliff Ellen, Rye

Adapt to change

Many Australians, particularly those who live in the eastern states, will be happy to see the back of 2022. The severity, frequency and extent of the flooding brought extreme hardship and loss of income to thousands, mostly those in regional towns and on the land.

Council and the Wilderness Society have found that over five million acres of woody vegetation were cleared in Queensland alone in the five years to 2019. Almost four million of those acres were bulldozed on beef properties. The report observes that eastern Australia is now listed as a “global deforestation front”.

Around eight million cattle are slaughtered in Australia each year, after a short, wretched life during which they were burned with hot irons (branded), their horns cut or burned off, and males’ testicles ripped out of their scrotums – all without pain relief. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and bulldozing an area the size of East Timor [Timor-Leste] to make room for yet more cattle is planetary suicide, killing koalas, polluting rivers and the Great Barrier Reef and contributing to dangerous climate change.

Here’s the best Christmas present for those that you love – give them a future, with liveable temperatures, clean air and water and cruelty-free food. Go vegan, for the season of peace on Earth.

Salvos give thanks

As yet another challenging year draws to a close, I find myself again asking: how can we, at The Salvos, express our immense gratitude to the Australian community for their generosity, kindness and support?

A smile, a please, and a thank you, and good manners generally, are very easy to give and can make a person’s day.

Performance praised

Last night (Thursday 15 December) my wife and I had the great pleasure of experiencing a fantastic musical recital at the Frankston Arts Centre when the MSO orchestra and choir, together with the Mornington Peninsula Chorale performed Handel’s Messiah.

I feel that we here on the peninsula, are most privileged to have, close at hand, such an excellent venue and to be entertained by such talented musicians, both professional and amateur.

Mornington Peninsula Shire is to be encouraged to continue it’s support for the performing arts.

Enforce contract

Can someone at Mornington Peninsula Shire explain why the standard of parks and reserves maintenance is so low? We all know of the unseasonal rain, but the presentation of Mornington parks is just dreadful.

I contacted the shire about Summerfields Wetlands playground which hasn’t seen a mower in weeks and weeks. What I got was a service request number (for a job that is routine and provided for under the parks contract).

Maybe the service request is to inquire why the shire contract managers are not enforcing the contract.

One correspondent quotes figures stating that one in 4 four people on the peninsula live below the property line (“Vote earner” Letters 13/12/22). Really? Does that include me and the rest of the coffee shop retirees who only have a minimum income but pay out a lot more in bills per week?

Just because we use our own funds, saved over years of hard work and employing others, rather than whinge about the amount of government handouts we can scrounge, doesn’t mean you can lump us in with the “you owe me a living group”.

Here is a fact: only 22 per cent of people in the Mornington electorate wanted a Labor candidate (two in 10). Nepean? Three in 10.

Perhaps it may be that these writers are out of sync with the majority.

‘Progressive’ choice

We have a new Victorian Liberal leader (a man) who has vowed to appeal to progressives. Progressivism is a political philosophy advocating for policies that are generally considered left-wing, left-wing populist, libertarian socialist, social democratic, and environmentalist. Progressives: an advocate of social reform.

Now for the oxymoron: John Pesutto, a former lawyer, adviser and a staffer for the alt-right Institute of Public Affairs, says he’ll be more constructive.

The Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) is a conservative non-profit free market public policy think tank. It advocates free market economic policies such as free markets, privatisation, deregulation of state-owned enterprises, trade liberalisation, deregulation of workplaces, abolition

Data released by the Insurance Council of Australia on 30 November shows that the cost of this year’s February-March floods has now reached more than $5.65 billion making it the “most expensive natural disaster in Australia’s history”. But just how natural were these events? NSW’s independent inquiry into the floods found that “as the climate warms, heavy rainfall events are expected to continue to become more intense with consequent increased chances of flash flooding”.

In its recent report, The Great Deluge, the climate council argues that because the natural drivers, La Nina and the Indian Ocean Dipole, were “climate-fuelled”, the term “unnatural disaster” is more appropriate.

According to science organisations, such as the Australian Academy of Science and NASA, today’s climate change is primarily human-induced. These extreme weather events are amplified by human activities and therefore are no longer natural in the usual sense.

The federal government’s focus has been on mitigating climate change. This money and effort must be matched by helping communities adapt as well. The 28 recommendations from the NSW inquiry into the floods provide an excellent model.

Go vegan for Christmas

A spectre is haunting Australia—the spectre of heatwaves. A James Cook University study this year showed that heatwaves are responsible for more deaths and hospitalisations than any other natural hazard, including cyclones and floods. And of course, the drying of tall grass in the heat threatens further catastrophic bushfires.

The bureau has warned that temperatures in parts of the outback will reach 46 degrees in the coming days and well into the 30s on the coast, portending a white (hot) Christmas, probably followed by destructive storms.

Why has the climate turned against us? Another statistic released this month sheds some light (and heat) on this. The Queensland Conservation

While I try to find the words, I think of families like Annie’s. They were already living close to the poverty line when her employer cut her hours of work, tipping them over the edge. Heading into Christmas, they were struggling to make ends meet. Agonising decisions like whether to put petrol in the car or food on the table; pay the electricity bill or buy medication plagued Annie every day. She began having panic attacks and harbouring guilt about not being able to give her children everything they want and deserve.

But thanks to the Aussie community spirit, Annie has hope.

“The Salvos helped us with bills and gave us vouchers so we could buy Christmas food and presents for the kids. It meant we could actually celebrate Christmas. I’m forever grateful, I really am,” Annie said.

As a Salvation Army officer, delivering services to people like Annie, there aren’t enough words to express our deepest gratitude to a very generous Australian community– all we can do is say thank you.

Thank you for donating, volunteering and packing hampers so that we could distribute over 64,000 food parcels and vouchers, and around 300,000 gifts and toys.

Thank you for helping us provide over 1.5 million meals, 887,500 crisis beds and 2000-plus services nationwide.

Thank you for helping us keep Christmas alive for Aussies struggling to make ends meet.

People say, ‘thank God for the Salvos’. We say thank God for you.

Sculptor makes kangaroo time for school

MATT Hill has created a sculpture for Rosebud Secondary College that will also act as a time capsule for the 2023 VCAL students as their legacy project.

Hill, a former student of the school, said he wanted to give back to the community.

He paid visited the school recently to talk with students about his work and the long and winding journey that got him to where he is today as a leading sculptor.

Hill’s work can be found displayed in homes and commercial properties around Australia and overseas.

Events spokesperson Melanie Quirk said Hill encouraged students to be proud of themselves and showed them that they could find their own path in the world.

The artist created the kangaroo corten steel sculpture, leaving a hole so he could add all of the items that the students had submitted as part of the time capsule project, before sealing it.

The sculpture is now displayed at the front of the school.

Quirk said Hill had a passion for creating unique and mesmerising sculptures from corten steel. A carpenter by trade, he has harnessed his knowledge of architectural and rendering software to create eye-catching pieces that are not bound by size or design limitations.

His signature works include large-scale metal animals and stratified spheres that light up at night. Some life-size sculptures can take up to 300 hours to complete.

Hill loves experimenting with geometric shapes and patterns and has become a master of creating 3D pieces from 2D planes.

Since his first sculpture won Best Small Sculpture at the Albert Park Art Exhibition in 2013, he has been invited to be the feature artist at numerous art exhibitions. His work has been commissioned by luxury hotels in Japan and won several awards, including accolades at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show in 2017 and 2018.

Pioneers’ trek to ‘traditional’ Christmas

IN 1839, Hobson's hut was in an open blackwood forest at the southern foot of Mt Martha. A rough bush structure described as having gaps in its presumably drop slab walls, an inadequate bark-covered roof and an earthen floor.

The hut was occupied by the Mornington Peninsula's first settler and former sailor, 23-year-old Edward Hobson from Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) and his mother, Malvina Hobson.

The date that Hobson took up the run is uncertain, but it was probably the previous year. He called his run Kangerong and it was primarily a cattle station, water being obtained from a lagoon on nearby Tubbarubba Creek, about five kilometres in from the coast.

Hobson employed sawyers to fell timber, apparently for newly-established Melbourne which was deficient in trees, and timber was brought from as far away as Western Port.

Among the guests invited by the Hobsons to celebrate Christmas 1839 were Robert Jamieson and Samuel Rawson from Yallock Station. Friends since meeting on the Florentia en route to Australia the year before, the pair had previously occupied the Cape Schanck run. Soon disenchanted with this location, Jamieson with others (including Hobson and some Aborigines) explored Western Port during the latter part of 1839. They selected about 40,000 acres at the head of the bay and Jamieson began transferring cattle from Cape Schanck on 13

November. He was joined by Rawson who arrived by dray in early December and the two men lived under a tarpaulin until their huts were built.

They set out for Hobson's on Sunday 22 December, by horseback and dray along a track probably made by Aborigines. Rawson described their destination as being Hobson's at Arthurs Seat, the latter name being given by squatters to an extensive district at the time, although some three years earlier, surveyors from HMS Rattlesnake had named Mt Martha.

In a day and age that was masculine and very British – Melbourne was named after the British Prime Minister, Capel Sound after Rear Admiral Sir Bladen Capel, and so on. One supposes it was waggish surveyors who named Mt Martha and Mt Eliza after two women of uncertain identity (they are the only female names on a very blokey chart of Port Phillip), then they called the elevations mountains rather than hills.

Curiously, ships of the period were often given feminine names, and it was Acting Lieutenant John Murray in HMS Lady Nelson, who had named Arthurs Seat (after a hill in Edinburgh) during an exploratory voyage in 1802.

Travelling west from their station, Jamieson and Rawson had to cross four streams about two miles apart and travelled only about four miles (6.5 kilometres) before deciding to camp for the night.

Having just made a fire, it began raining heavily “as if it was going to be a second deluge”. The pair crawled under their dray but, because the

boards in the floor of the dray were six inches (15 centimetres) apart, the men spread their cloaks and blankets over the cracks to try and keep out the rain, although in a few minutes, cloaks and blankets were thoroughly soaked. Despite the rain, it was hot, about 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius), so they took off everything except their shirts.

Rawson complains in his journal about being continually awakened by Jamieson thrashing about with a leafy switch in an attempt to keep off the mosquitoes.

About 2am a change saw a drop in the temperature and it became “deadly cold”. The rain turned into “a mixture of hail, rain, and snow”, although the latter over-statement may reflect the fact that when Rawson woke up next morning “he never felt so cold and miserable” in his life.

The fire had gone out and their clothing was soaked. In another over-dramatic turn of phrase, perhaps reflecting the fact that horses were usually stabled overnight, Rawson reckoned that their tethered horses “were so cold they could hardly stand”.

It rained heavily in Melbourne too and Aboriginal assistant protector William Thomas – camping on the south side of the Yarra - recorded that a “great flood” occurred during the night: the river rose 16 feet (about five metres) and some huts were completely under water.

Not a night to be outside underneath a leaky dray.

The two men's saddles were “like sponges” and in that condition they

had to ride the remaining 30 miles (48 kilometres) with the rain “still descending in torrents”.

They reached Hobson's “hospitable hut” about 10am on Christmas Eve, and were given brandy, dry clothes and breakfast. A more cheerful Rawson declared in his journal that they were “as well as ever”.

Already there were “Mr and Mrs Smith, the Meyricks and Desaillys”, although that guest list is not as straightforward as it appears. “Mr Smith” is usually assumed to have been George Smith, the proprietor of Melbourne's bawdy Lamb Inn but, seeing the Hobsons other guests were all “young guns” and Smith is unlikely to have left his Inn during the Christmas period – “the Smiths” may have been George Smith's son and his wife, as a few passing references in the journal of Protector Thomas suggest that Smith Junior was the manager of Baggamahjarrawah station, about three kilometres to the south-west of Kangerong and licensed to Melbourne's Dr Edmund Hobson, a brother to Edward.

Another guest, Maurice Meyrick, 21, from Wiltshire, had taken up the Boniyong run (Boneo), and considering his brother Alfred and cousin Henry did not arrive in the Colony until the following year, then who were (the plural) Meyricks? Presumably it is an error in Rawson's journal.

The Desailly family was from Van Diemen's Land and had attempted to move to Port Phillip on the Britannia in March 1839, but the ship was wrecked in Port Phillip. Teenage son George, together with rescued sheep,

took up a run to the south of Arthurs Seat in the Boneo valley and called the place Tondomohue. He was likely accompanied on this occasion by his brother, Francis. That made a total of probably 10 people at Hobson's hut. They spent an enjoyable Christmas Eve seated in front of a fire, with a bowl of hot toddy. How they spent the night in a less-than-sturdy hut was not recorded, but presumably they were accommodated in what was then termed “shake-downs”.

Cramped quarters or not, the group which assembled to celebrate Christmas Day made up a “merry party” in a hut “which a beggar in England would hardly live in”.

They sat down for dinner to “the usual English cheer” and toasted absent friends with champagne. The only Christmas foodstuff advertised in the Port Phillip Patriot had been raisins, the rest of the Christmas fare doubtless being up to the skill of the cook.

Mrs Hobson's culinary attainments are not known, but one supposes that expertise would have been required to cook for a significant number of people under Kangerong's primitive conditions, particularly when the festivities apparently lasted for a few days.

On 30 December, Rawson, who had business matters in Melbourne which required his attention, departed along the track that would become the Nepean Highway, while Jamieson returned to Yallock.

Flinders re-elects Captain S. M. Bruce MHR

Compiled by Cameron McCullough

FRANKSTON, in common with other towns throughout Australia, refused to get excited on Saturday last over the Federal elections.

The return of the Commonwealth Treasurer, Capt. S. M. Bruce, for the Flinders electorate, was regarded by his friends as a certainty, and as there was no visible sign of activity on the part of the opposition the conclusion arrived at was that almost everybody was voting for the retiring member.

Very many electors, not only in Frankston, but, throughout the electorate, did not record their votes.

Many voters argued: “Oh, Bruce is safe enough; he can do without my vote,” and they left the job to the other fellow.

The result was that Mr. Thompson, the Liberal candidate, made a remarkably good showing, as the appended figures show.

The Frankston polling booth was in charge of the veteran, Capt. S. Sherlock, who, with his competent staff, carried out the duties of the day in a highly efficient manner.


THE children of the Frankston State school, in response to Lady Forster’s appeal for the Relief Fund for Stricken Europe, raised the nice sum of four guineas amongst themselves only.

Acting on Mrs. Pownall’s suggestion, they brought in fresh eggs for the Children’s Hospital for Christmas use.

So generous were their donations that about sixteen dozen eggs were despatched.

Two very commendable little efforts, showing the right Christmas spirit.

Owing to the early closing for the

Christmas vacation the Christmas tree was not held, but the rooms were nicely decorated and the blackboards filled with appropriate drawings, in which Santa Claus figured prominently.

A large tin of lollies was much appreciated by the juniors.

The head master, Mr. Jennings has promised the school a treat on the 29th March, the Thursday before Good Friday, and, as the Qualifying and Merit pupils obtained such good results, and practically every child in the school received promotion to a higher grade for January, 1923, he has promised that it will be a very good treat.


WELLS ROAD. Large Expenditure Needed. Cr. Armstrong Suggests Concerted Action.

The Council discussion on the above subject recorded in last Wednesday’s issue of the “Standard” has attracted considerable attention, and people who know the requirements of Wells Road best and are anxious for its improvement are not at all sure that the Council did a wise thing in deciding to expend a paltry £100 or so on this important highway.

They argue that the road is one of the most important thoroughfares in the Shire, and as such requires a Government vote of several thousands of pounds to put it in proper order.

When interviewed on the subject yesterday, Cr. W. Armstrong, the Shire President, said he had been fighting hard to induce the Country Roads Board to take over Wells Road as a developmental road.

He realised the importance of the road, and said he was keenly disappointed when the letter was read from

the Country Roads Board, stating that owing to lack of funds they could not take over the road at present.

Cr. Armstrong was of the opinion that the Council should not let the matter drop.

It was his intention at next meeting to again refer to the matter, as he was afraid that the few pounds voted at last meeting for improvements would convey the idea that all had been done that could be done.

He was not satisfied that this was the case.

He favored a deputation to the Minister, backed up by the residents of the district, to see to a comprehensive scheme for the formation of the road from end to end could not be arranged.

He thoroughly agreed with the views of some of the settlers that £100 would not do more than fill in a few holes and could effect no lasting benefit.


MR. and Mrs. P. Wheeler returned to Frankston yesterday, after several weeks spent in New Zealand.

Mr. Wheeler visited the Dominions to assist at the installation of Lord Jellicoe as Worshipful Master of the Masonic Lodge.


COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. Langwarrin Robbery Case.

At the Frankston Police Court on Monday last the man, Herbert Jones, who was remanded from last week’s court, appeared to answer the charge of having stolen property to the value of £15 from the residence of Mrs. Holley, of Langwarrin.

The Bench was occupied by Cr. W. Armstrong and Messrs. C. W. Grant and Brown, J.sP.

Accused, who came to the district about three months ago to work for Mr. Griffiths of Langwarrin, was committed for trial.

Mrs. Holley gave evidence as to accused’s movements on the day of the robbery, and “acting on information” Constable Mahoney, of Frankston, placed Jones under arrest.


ONE of “Strathmore’s” acquaintances has a particularly fine taste for delicacies, and delights in raspberry puddings, tripe cutlets, stuffed oysters and the like.

He is a personality whose presence is one of Frankston’s assets.

Naturally, a man gifted with an appetite of this variety is addicted to dreaming, and, although Melba declares dreaming is inspirational, this friend of mine declares it to be the very opposite.

He had a terrible dream the other night.

As an Anzac he had swam in the waters of the Bosphorus – whilst in Egypt he had splashed in the Nile.

In France he bathed in the Somme, and had washed his august presence in the Avon.

Thinking of those vivid days the other night, he slept on that raspberry pie and dreamed of pleasant incidents in those distant days of tragedy.

After a while, he screamed and spluttered.

“Save me!” he shrieked.

His wife ran to the rescue. When he awakened he explained, “Blime, I thought I was drowning in the Kananook Creek!”


MR. David Unaipon, the Australian

aboriginal evangelist, conducted the Presbyterian services at Frankston, Baxter and Somerville on Sunday last. ***

ON Saturday next, December 23, a new amusement venture will be commenced at “Melisande,” Melbourne Road, Frankston.

Miss Rene Melisande has fitted out the grounds in front of her house for the purpose of an open-air entertainment of a high-class character.

The management is in the hands of Mr. Phil Dowding, who has had a wide experience of a similar nature in various parts of the Commonwealth.

Miss Melisande proposes to present pictures equal to any shown in Melbourne with the additional attraction of being in the open-air.

A tarpaulin will be fixed which will provide ample protection in the event of inclement weather.

The “Melisande” orchestra, under the baton of Mr. Herbert Sutton, A.R.C.O., etc., will provide the music, and it is intended that this will be of a very high standard.

The pictures will be changed twice weekly; likewise the musical programme.

On Saturday nights the first half of the programme will take the form of a concert and the second half pictures.

For the opening night the vocalists will be Mr. John D. Brownlee (baritone), who is going to London to enlarge his musical career on the recommendation of Dame Nellie Melba, O.B.E., and Miss Alice Wood, the well-known mezzo-soprano. ***

Front Beach, Back Beach (FBBB) was an ambitious public art project that took place across the Mornington Peninsula in November. The exhibition component of FBBB transports objects, ideas and documentation of the 15 projects back into the gallery. Bringing together the diverse communities, cultures and landscapes of the townships and regions between our front and back beaches, FBBB located contemporary public artworks within the landscape. Here and now, we welcome Front Beach, Back beach indoors to MPRG where the ‘voyage’ continues for more visitors to enjoy.

The third iteration of our Collection+ exhibition series pairs the internationally renowned British artist Julian Opie with the work of Melbourne artist Judith Alexandrovics. Within this unlikely combination, we can see common threads throughout their work, both artists observing and thoughtfully documenting people in the landscape, particularly groups of people in the urban environment, which is the main thematic focus for this exhibition. This project has been curated by MPRG Registrar Angie Taylor.

We also have some fantastic collection works on display by G.W. Bot, Locust Jones and David Larwill. A number of these works have been recently donated to the collection, so we are thrilled to be able to get them out so soon and on display for you all to see. We have some great school holiday workshops coming up in January, including painting your own sneakers and create a soft sculpture inspired by artist Hiromi Tango. We also have a VCE workshop with artist Vera Moller and a workshop for VCE students to give them a head start for the year. Book in early as these workshops always have strong demand.

The gallery will be closed 24-26 December, 31 December–2 January and closed Australia Day. Otherwise, we can’t wait to welcome you 11am-4pm, Tuesday-Sunday. Have a great festive season.

What the Dickens – From Listless Christmas Past to Glorious Present

In his book, ‘A Christmas Carol’, not only did he forget to include a character named ‘Carol’, he victimized a man of advanced years just because he was thrifty. Granted, ‘A Christmas Scrooge’ sounds somewhat unsavoury, but in less judgmental times Ebenezer Scrooge would have been lauded as a fiscally conservative hero. Worse still, Dickens needlessly uses ghosts to transport our misunderstood protagonist to the past, present and future. It’s totally pointless - Christmas has always been about time travel.

There’s no other day of the year that can move you so effortlessly from one point in your life to another. No matter what age you are, you can feel like a child again, even if it’s just for a fleeting moment. Charles Dickens knew that. But I don’t need a ghost to help me see Christmases past, present and future. For me, seeing the past, present and future is what the day is all about.

Christmas is a signpost, a crossroad and gigantic roundabout with a tramline running through it (possibly) all at once. It’s a day that tells you where you’ve been, where you are and where you’re going. It’s glorious.

The sense of nostalgia is especially potent at my father’s house. That’s partly because he still uses the same artificial tree and decorations he did when we were kids. I realize that the very notion of an artificial tree can be controversial to some, but their allure lies in the promise that you’ll never have to buy another Christmas tree again. My father has taken that promise to heart. In the four decades since he purchased his artificial tree,

the plastic needles have fallen away, leaving what’s left totally denuded and looking like a demented TV antennae. That he sets it up whenever he wants to watch something on SBS only en-

trenches this impression further. It’s not just the tree. As kids, we were required to remove the wrapping paper with the utmost care, ensuring no rips or tears. It was a task

we approached with all the caution of a member of the bomb squad. He even gave us each a scalpel. This has enabled my father to reuse the same paper numerous times over the subsequent decades. There’s an upside. These days it can be difficult to secure a supply of ‘Six Million Dollar Man’ wrapping paper, but each year I can rely on my gifts being swaddled in cartoon images of Steve Austin. It’s comforting.

Other things change quickly. Two years ago, I headed down to family Christmas on my own. It was a difficult day but, luckily, I had Steve Austin wrapping paper to look forward to. A year later, I was arriving in a small minivan full of people. It was to be an entirely different experience. A better one. Twelve months earlier, I’d driven down with just my thoughts for company. It was a lousy experience. In contrast, the following year was full of colour, movement and chaos.

Arriving with such a large entourage was new for me. I’ll admit there were moments that caught me off guard. Especially when the eight year old loudly declared that his seventeen-year-old sibling had an image on his cap that, for reasons associated with good taste, I’ll simply describe as a ‘Dickens’.

The picture had been drawn on with black texta and, hopefully, was not to scale. It was a moment of great excitement that resulted in some rather heated discussion.

As to why the image of a male appendage had been drawn on the hat or why this hat had been selected for Christmas lunch was never explained, as the seventeen year old kept his thoughts to himself. In a moment of

panic, his sister snatched the cap and used a marker to turn the offending image into holly. By the time she was done, it looked quite festive. With the stroke of a pen, the Dickens had become decorative. A Christmas miracle!

Truth be told, I’ve always loved Christmas. But there were times when my family was no good at it. For a little while, after we all left home, we struggled to come together on Christmas Day. Looking back, I’ve no idea why that was. What I know, however, is that it all changed when the first nephew arrived; Christmas was instantly reinvigorated with purpose and meaning. It’s been that way ever since. Christmas is a malleable thing. It changes as we do.

I’m looking forward to all of it. The threadbare tree skeleton that haunts the living room as presents spill out across the carpet. The sound of children and (possibly) adults screaming with delight as they shred wrapping paper with merciless vigour (my father is more relaxed when it comes to wrapping paper these days), the decorations and the festive jumpers and t-shirts. Crackers and tinsel, baubles and pudding, and even hats that have a giant Dickens drawn on them. I can’t wait. And, when it’s done, I’ll find a moment to sit down with one of my all-time favourite books – ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens and marvel at the transformative nature of good will and generosity of spirit. Then before I go to bed, I’ll likely read the last line of that great book aloud –God bless us. Every one!

Baxter’s brilliant run chase succeeds, Rye holds on

BAXTER overcame a first innings loss to grab an outright win against Sorrento on day two of their match on Saturday

On day one, Baxter succumbed to a brutal first innings defeat. They were bowled out for 63 in response to Sorrento’s 110.

Sorrento made a second innings total of 7/137. They then sent Baxter in to bat to close out day two, with the chasing side needing to score 186 to win.

Baxter were much better in their second innings. Opener Daniel Warwick got his side off to a strong start with a well-taken half century.

After losing three wickets for just four runs, Baxter began to struggle. Their middle order got things back on track.

With time ticking away and just two wickets to spare, Baxter dragged

themselves over the line for a hardfought victory. Leigh Stewart hit the winning runs.

Jake Wood was awesome for Sorrento. He took 5/59, backing up his day one figures of 8/16.

At Lloyd Park, Langwarrin wrapped up a good win over Pines, Langwarrin easily defended their day one total of 321.

Long Island and Old Peninsula rounded out the winner’s list with victories over Red Hill and Baden Powell respectively.


SEAFORD Tigers had to bowl well to claim victory over Mornington on Saturday.

The Tigers made 202 runs on day one. First drop batter Mackenzie Gardner was the star with a score of 92.

Mornington’s openers made a good start, but their run chase was threat-

ened by a middle order collapse. They lost three batters in quick succession for scores of 4, 5, and 0.

Mornington put up a fight late, but the damage was already done. They were bowled out for 164, 39 runs short of victory.

Mark Carroll worked hard for the Tigers. He took 4/47 off 23 overs, bowling six maidens in the process.

Dromana scored 209 runs on day two of their clash with Mt Eliza, but it wasn’t enough to claim the win. Mt Eliza successfully defended their day one total of 301.

Somerville picked up a comfortable win over Flinders on Saturday, and Heatherhill defeated Moorooduc by 39 runs.


ROSEBUD got the better of Carrum in a competitive match on Saturday. Rosebud came into day two having scored 202 on the opening day of the


Carrum struggled to get any momentum going throughout the afternoon. At 4/69 they looked in deep trouble.

The middle order steadied things for Carrum, but time began to work against them too. Eventually more wickets started to fall.

When stumps was called, Carrum were still 39 runs short of the win with just a wicket to spare. Patrick Nagel and Jarrod Hicks took three wickets each for Rosebud on day two.

Carrum Downs picked up a win over Delacombe Park on Saturday - they reached their target of 120 with four wickets to spare. Main Ridge’s score of 120 was enough to beat Hastings on day two of their matchup.

RYE have held on for a tight win over


On day one, Rye was bowled out for 144 runs. Balnarring started day two on 2/24.

Rye had a difficult ask ahead of them, and proved up to it. They bowled Balnarring out for 118 to score a hard-fought win.

Rye bowler Waligama Palleguruge starred on day two. He took impressive figures of 5/28, and was instrumental to his side’s success.

At Bunguyan Reserve, Tyabb finished the job against Skye. Tyabb successfully chased down their target of 120, going on to make a final total of 9/181. Skye batted out the day and were much better, scoring 0/87.

Seaford, Mount Eliza in State 5


SEAFORD United and Mount Eliza will play in State 5 South next season. Both clubs were given the welcome news from Football Victoria last week after undergoing a rigorous application process.

South East United had withdrawn from State 5 South as FV screened the applicants thereby reducing the competition to 10 teams so the inclusion of the two local clubs restores the league’s 12-team format.

For Seaford it’s a return to State League after a one-year absence while Mount Eliza will compete in State League for the first time.

Seaford is yet to formally announce its senior coach for the upcoming campaign but has agreed terms with its preferred candidate.

He is well-known in local football circles and will be assisted by another well-known local in former Frankston Pines and Peninsula Strikers player Steve Keenan who was assistant coach of Mentone last season.

Keenan and the senior coach were due to meet as we went to press in order to discuss the players to target for their senior squad.

Mount Eliza has hit the ground running and last week announced that Bryce Ruthven was its new senior coach assisted by Stan Packer and Amir Osmancevic.

Ruthven, 33, has previously held the position of senior coach with Churchill in the Latrobe Valley Soccer League and was an assistant NPL coach in Queensland.

Packer is best known for his involvement with Rosebud Heart and Somerville Eagles while Osmancevic is a former Dandenong Thunder, Dandenong City and Mornington striker.

“Amir hasn’t played for a couple of years but we’re pretty excited about having him on board,” Ruthven said.

“Not just in terms of his football knowledge but also as a player in State 5.

“I would say he’d be one of the better players at that level.”

Ruthven is eyeing success from the outset and has arranged eight pre-season games so far.

“When I came on board Mount Eliza had that stigma of being a Bayside League club and I want to make a statement that we’re a State League club now and a competitive one.

“We’re not here to make up the numbers.

“We’re here to finish as high up the ladder as we can and if that leads to promotion then so be it.

“A lot of the boys we’ll have in the

squad are boys we have at the club already and we’re looking at adding five or six quality boys like Amir.”

It’s understood that Packer initiated contact with Mount Eliza and put Ruthven’s name forward to president Justin Sheppard.

One of Mount Eliza’s State 5 rivals, Rosebud, recently announced that Paul Truman was its new senior coach.

Truman holds a UEFA A licence and has coached at South Dandenong (now Dandenong Thunder), Bentleigh Greens, Bulleen, Langwarrin, Mornington and Seaford United.

He has mainly worked in the NPL junior boys’ programs and takes over from Ryan Monk and Stef Papaluca.

“After speaking to me they said they wouldn’t interview anyone else and offered me the job,” Truman said.

“After the Seaford debacle last year my immediate task is to hopefully ensure that we have two teams (seniors

and reserves) to put on the pitch.

“I’m having a meet and greet with the players on Tuesday this week.

“I’ve got a few players coming from my connections at Mornington and all the other players I’ve spoken to have said they are interested in coming down and having a look.”

In NPL2 news Langwarrin has quietly gone about the business of revamping its senior squad after the departures of Ryan Paczkowski, Fraser Maclaren, Marcus Holmes, Kieran Dover, Sammy Orritt and Ramazan Tavsancioglu.

Archie McPhee, James Burgess and Charlie Fry agreed terms a couple of months ago and have been joined recently by five other newcomers in Josh Varga, Nathan Cook, Thomas Podaridis, Luke Goulding and Brad Blumenthal.

Varga is an attacking midfielder from Nunawading City via Melbourne Victory, Cook is a central

defender from Dandenong City, Podaridis is a central defender from Springvale White Eagles, Goulding has returned from Mornington and former Frankston Pines and Mornington left winger Blumenthal has been signed from Sydenham Park.

Don’t be surprised if they are joined by Mornington striker Josh Hine.

It’s understood that Hine was at Langy training last week and was talking to the club’s main sponsor, Greg Kilner of Premier Builders.

Hine is waiting for permanent residency and Langy already has locked in its three visa spots to be taken up by captain Rogan McGeorge, Tom Youngs and McPhee.

Langwarrin’s 2023 league season kicks off on Saturday 18 February with a home game at Lawton Park against Kingston City at 7pm.

Langy’s next five games are away from home due to planned roadworks on Barretts Road.

In State 4 news Somerville Eagles last week announced that it had signed forward Marcus Anastasiou from Skye United.

“Marcus is a fantastic addition,” Somerville senior coach Adam Steele said.

“He’s a winger but he’s really an all-round striker and we could even play him in midfield if we needed to.”

The other names linked to Somerville are those of Jake Meggs, Coby Vowels and Peter Photopoulos.

“Jake and Coby were with Pines ressies,” Steele added.

“Jake’s a left back and he plays way above his years.

“Coby’s a right winger but I haven’t had a good look at him yet and Pete’s a left winger who previously played with Box Hill.

“He hasn’t played for about five years but he’ll be another good signing – an older head in the group.”


Congratulations Luke McVeigh from Crib Point on being the lucky winner of the Golf Course Competition, which appeared in this paper in November.

Luke has won a year’s supply of Callaway E.R.C. Soft Golf Balls, thanks to MPNG and Callaway Golf South Pacific.

Shining a light on awesome re-use and recycling stories

Brainwave Bikes

Since partnering with an amazing organisation called Brainwave Bikes a few months ago, we have salvaged over 60 unwanted bikes that were dropped off at our Resource Recovery Centres! These bikes will be repurposed by Brainwave Bikes and resold at affordable prices. All profits go to Brainwave Australia – a charity supporting children with brain injuries and illnesses.

Did you know we also have a Recycled Goods Shop at our Mornington Resource Recovery Centre? It’s a treasure trove of items that were salvaged at our Centres and can now be purchased at low-cost

Recovery stations

In August, we introduced a new service to recycle tricky household items. Four new recovery stations were installed at the Rosebud, Hastings, Somerville and Mornington libraries.

The free recycling service is for those hard-to-recycle objects that can’t go in your kerbside recycling bins, such as: electrical cables and cords, mobile phones and cameras, DVDs and CDs, X-Ray films and fluorescent light globes.

We are really excited that the recovery hubs have been a huge success and extremely popular!

In August we collected 174kg of material and in September another 810kg – that’s 984kg of material already been diverted from landfill!

Recycling trailer

Our mobile recycling trailer has been roving around the Peninsula visiting lots of community groups/

organisations for a few weeks at a time.

Unwanted clothing and small electrical items can be dropped off at the trailer to be rehomed or recycled rather than being sent to landfill. This wonderful idea was sparked by the Flinders Lions Club.

Since this service began in 2021, we have collected over 11,000kgs of unwanted household items and most of these items have been rehomed in communities who really need them the most.

The trailer is also available for hire by community groups/organisations.

See you later polystyrene

In October, we introduced a trial collection and recycling service for clean, domestic Expanded Polystyrene (EPS). Previously, this troublesome material was being sent directly to landfill. In the first two weeks of our trial, we collected more than 35 cubic metres of polystyrene which is now being recycled and diverted from landfill – winning!

Food waste

In the last three months alone, our very popular food and green waste service has seen at least 550 new green waste bins and more than 195 kitchen caddies delivered to households. Since launching in 2021, we’ve had nearly 19,000 households opt-in for the service!

This quarter we also processed 23 rebates for domestic composting systems, which were delivered directly to households across the Shire.

Peninsula Teachers for the Environment Network

We facilitate a Peninsula Teachers for the Environment Network.

Thank you to our wonderful teachers that are part of the network who have been doing an amazing job encouraging their school communities to recycle right and raising awareness about waste and reuse practices. teachersenvironetwork

Recycling Right on the Peninsula

The Victorian Government is working with councils to support the roll-out of a new standardise household waste and recycling system for more and better recycling and less waste and landfill. The final plan is due to be released at the end

of 2023.

This may mean changes in the future as to what can and cannot be recycled in your kerbside recycling bin. As these changes are implemented, we’ll inform and educate our community of these changes.

Play your part and bin your litter

check out our waste ambassadors while you’re strolling the foreshore

With summer around the corner, we can start enjoying our outdoors more (if the rain stays away!). While you’re out, play your part in making sure litter doesn’t spoil our beautiful Peninsula.

With more people on the Peninsula over the summer period, it inevitably means more rubbish. We’ve placed extra bins in popular places and will

Play your part #binyourlitter

be increasing bin collections – three times a day in some locations.

Despite our best efforts, sometimes a public rubbish bin will become full. So, we’re trialling using QR codes for you to report overflowing bins. Look out for these and help prevent litter from escaping our bins and making its way into our bays and waterways.
