You often hear about the law of supply and demand with regards to real estate.  Basically when supply outweighs demand, downward pressure is applied to pricing.  Conversely, when demand outweighs supply, upward pressure is applied to pricing, which is what we are seeing happen with a property we are currently marketing at 4 Berthon Street, Aireys Inlet.  This is surely one of the more interesting properties to have hit the … Continue Reading »

Smoke was evident yesterday as firefighters conducted a burn off at the end of the beach at Spout Creek, known to many of us as a surf spot called Hunters.

It turns out that this wasn’t a standard burn off at all. It was in fact part of an investigation into the murder of a 22 year old man in Melbourne last year.

Australia had three competitors in the race. Lesotho one, Lineo Chaka.

What a shame, but what a champion.

Mighty Mick Fanning may have lost the final at the Rip Curl Pro yesterday at Bells Beach, but he lost no friends in the process.

Surfing doesn’t get the coverage of other mainstream sports in this country which is a little surprising given Australia’s dominance of the sport in the past, but Mick Fanning should go down as one of Australia’s great sportsmen.

This event was … Continue Reading »

Are you embarrassed to be an Australian?

Following the events of the past week by the Australian test cricket team, I certainly am.  For years we have been very quick to judge other teams questionable tactics.  Now we are the ones in the spotlight and there is nowhere to hide.

Captain, Vice Captain and who else?

Now those at the top are also under fire, more for their response and lack of action, … Continue Reading »

Such a beautiful morning here on the Great Ocean Road today.  Early autumnal weather provided clear sunny skies and a light wind.  I was very envious of a school group standup paddle boarding in the Painkalac River this morning.  I don’t recall school excursions being so much fun.  Visits to Sovereign Hill or the Shine of Remembrance?  I know what I would rather have been doing…… Continue Reading »
