In this issue - Australian Country issue 21.5
This issue we’ve travelled from Tewantin on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast to Ascot in central Victoria where still life artist Criss Canning lives with her plantsman husband, David Glenn. En route we detoured to World-Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island to profile an artist with a fishy tale and visit the historic home of Widge and Peter Curtin. We also caught up with artist Jill Barber Richardson, her husband, Rob, and their children, who are the sixth generation of Richardsons to have called Gorrinn station near Ararat in south-western Victoria home. Then we dropped in on ex-farmer Wendy Williams and former brewer Simon Brooke-Taylor and their son, Alex Williams, at their Hurdle Creek Distillery in Victoria’s north-east. Our travel stories took us from Hobart to Tassie’s west coast, and the monastery brewers of Lower Bavaria in Germany to a fabulous villa in Tuscany owned by Canadian TV design guru Debbie Travis. There’s a spring in our steps and loads of decorating and gardening inspiration on every page.
