Join the Ashbury Community today. Space to relax and breathe, yet surrounded by all the amenities and services you would expect of a premium developed community. Close enough to work or school, Ashbury provides that perfect lifestyle balance. Nestled quietly away within the dynamic Armstrong Creek area, Ashbury is an exciting residential community surrounded by natural beauty including parklands, nature reserves, green belts and a stunning wetland.

Just 15 minutes from the Geelong CBD, Ashbury is part of the fast growing Armstrong Creek precinct. Indeed, the best of both worlds – city and coast – is at your doorstep, with famed Torquay beach, Barwon Heads beach and Surf Coast just a short drive away. Everything is in place.


The landscape is home to protected flora and fauna in beautiful conservation areas such as Hoopers Paddock. Ashbury offers a tranquil escape with many of the characteristic stag trees having been retained to provide important shelter for local wildlife and in recognition and preservation of Ashbury’s rich rural heritage. Parks and reserves feature indigenous plantings that are sympathetic to the bush land heritage of the landscape. And natural materials such as timber, brick and brush fencing are featured to enhance Ashbury’s country character.

INDULGE YOUR TASTEBUDS

ave you ever been to Canada and indulged in the exquisite range of rustic, traditional baked goods? Those who have will have been lucky enough to savour the flavours of traditional baked goods, maple syrups, sweet and savoury tastes from their artisan bakeries. Those who haven’t can taste all this and more at a new destination on the Surf Coast – the Canadian-inspired Maple Bakery. Maple Bakery, located in Torquay in a spacious shop with an abundance of car spaces right outside the front door. With its inspiration from Canada – and of course the widely known fact that Canadian Maple syrup is wonderful natural product – many of its products are something you would find in Canadian / North American Region, many with subtle Maple-flavoured tones to bring out some truly delicious tastes and twists on traditional baked products. This two-storey oasis offers plenty of space for all occasions such as meetings, family gatherings, morning coffee with friends and is a popular refreshment point

for a bike ride on the coast. Maple Bakery also has an outdoor dining space which is great for catching sunshine all year round. Wake up with their Brazil Cerrado Single Origin Blend coffee brewed specially for the venue by Surf Coast Coffee Roasters – you know what they say ‘a coffee a day, keeps the grumpies away’. The inspiring menu draws from a wide array of influences with the driving force behind the decadent flavours and choices being Andre Smaniotto and Head Chef Chris Bart. Together they achieve a balance of quality, innovation and authenticity. Signature Canadian products include the Hoodoo Tart which is a close cousin of the traditional butter tart in Canada but with a twist of Maple Syrup in a sweet lava-like centre – and yes, they like to give things a unique twist. Included on the menu is an ever-evolving array of savoury and sweet treats. Weekly specials include their signature Whoopie brownies made with Sustainable and Fair Trade Belgian dark chocolate with a buttercream centre. summer 2022 geelong + surf coast living 99

Maple Bakery is proud to say that their special range of donuts have become a firm favourite for young and old alike. Fresh-made each morning using free-range eggs – as are all their products – they’re topped with a delicious variety of flavours including Maple Cinnamon, milk and white chocolate, crushed Oreos, Tim Tams, bacon, pulled pork and more. The flat-shaped Beavertail donut is a real mouthful – and a tribute to Canada’s cutest native. The Nanaimo Bar is a well-protected classic of Canada - and those that know, know. The Nanaimo has created robust debates as the texture and ingredients can vary from the traditional combination – this one has caused a stir! It is based on a 1950s Canadian elementary school recipe supplied by a Canadian that came to Australia many years ago. Betty was quite well known in Canada with her family and friends for being the Nanaimo queen and regularly casts an eye over Maple Bakery product and though there are several methods to making the coveted Nanaimo, it has created a good debate among Canadians visiting.

Some products use gluten free ingredients such as the lemon meringue tart, pecan and macadamia tart, raspberry cheesecake (low carb and keto), housemade marshmallows and much more. They also offer a great range of savoury lunch items such as salmon or haloumi baguettes, egg and bacon or pulled pork donuts, turkey bagels, a variety of homemade pies, spinach ricotta rolls, quiche, frittatas and more. The team is passionate, welcoming and enjoy their time at Maple Bakery as much as their customers do. Since opening their doors six months ago they’ve celebrated Canada Day and Canadian Thanksgiving Day where orders of ‘Poutine’ flew out the doors. Poutine is a Canadian tradition which includes fries loaded with gravy and cheese curd – ‘squeak squeak’. The next event on the horizon is of course the festive season. Maple Bakery will be serving Christmas logs, Christmas puddings, macarons, gingerbread and mince pies so be sure to get in quick with pre-orders. Maple Bakery look forward to seeing you this summer.

s their name suggests, 3228BLINDS is a family-owned-and-operated business based in the heart of Torquay and all the team is local to the area. Launching in 2012 to fill a gap in the market, they quickly identified the lack of a window furnishings business that could deliver the following to the local market.

A

Quality Australian-made furnishings marketed to middle- to high-end homes Ŷ Excellent Customer Service during and after sale Ŷ High standard of workmanship and installation Ŷ Customised honest advice Ŷ Customers before profit Ŷ

After a small launch the phones started ringing – and well…. the rest is history. All of their customers became friends – in fact that is how they have grown their team. All the team were once customers and through friendship 3228BLINDS has

been able to offer ongoing quality service, never having to advertise as they manage to attract the right people with the right skill set and that’s what makes them different. They don’t hire from within the industry but rather hire the people they cannot work without – valuing people over skills. Skills that can’t be taught. This way the team holds the same values as the business and allows the same level of excellence throughout the entire process. Owner Phil meets the client and walks through the job while Ag handles enquires right through to the installation team doing their thing as they all aim for the highest standard. They take each job on as if it were their own and strive for their client’s smiling faces at completion. They feel there is nothing greater after a job has been installed than getting that call from an ecstatic client praising them for the work they have delivered. It’s what gets them up in the mornings. That – and the amazing area they live in.

3228BLINDS also demand the same perfection from their suppliers which is the reason they only use those they trust with their work. All their suppliers are small, family-owned businesses who focus on quality and service and they go to great lengths to ensure they know their suppliers on a personal level and that they understand the business. This has allowed them to know their clients as they see 3228BLINDS interact with them on social media platforms and this intimacy gives manufactures a sense of ownership, pride and connection and allows them to see clients enjoying their creations

in their own homes. It completes the circle and embraces the family values. 3228BLINDS are extremely proud of the business they have created. It has taken blood, sweat and tears to get to this point and they have no desire to grow any larger as they want to maintain the focus on their clients. They also believe that growing too large will remove the personal connection that makes them the most unique window furnishing business on the Surf Coast. Quality and value always come before quantity and their client reviews are a testament to that.
