Whales in Kakadu

Only in 2020 could Humpback Whales get stuck in a croc infested river in Kakadu , NT . For a start , they have no business being in the area as they should be well and truly on their way to Antarctica by now . But hey , not much surprises me at the moment ! Join me as I give you the update on how they are going and what the plan is to get them out of there – I will do another update in a few days , hopefully its good news !!

* disclaimer – I accidentally refer to crocs as alligators at some point at the end of the episode ( probably because the river is called East Alligator River which is bloody confusing for tourists but anyway )…. – I definitely meant crocs , sorry !!

Start your own country – Hutt River

Are you sick of the Government telling you what to do ? Do what Aussie wheat farmer Leonard Casley did and start your own country ! 

Unhappy with production quotas being imposed by the government , Leonard renamed himself Prince Leonard , donned a robe and some jewels , created a flag and a new currency and voila , he was now Prince Leonard of the Principality of Hutt River . He even got a letter from the Queen . He did go to war with Australia at one point .. for 48 hours until he declared that Hutt River had won the war. It’s that easy folks ….

( Disclaimer – not sure how legal this is so maybe get a lawyer first …. )

For more crazy stories my book is available here : or all good online bookstores inc Kindle , Apple books etc 

I love a chat so say G’day anytime ……

Hotel Coolgardie

Outback WA is often referred to as the Wild West and this documentary by Peter Gleason dives right into the wild side of remote pubs.

Located 50 kms west of Gold mining town Kalgoorlie sits the tiny town of Coolgardie , a self confessed ghost town of the Goldfields . The Denver Hotel is one of its main attractions , along with the local swimming pool.

The doco is centred around the Denver Hotel , and the experience of the two Finnish backpackers , Lina and Stephie , who found work there through a Perth based agency. Join me today as I give you my thoughts on Coolgardie , the bloke that ran the show and what I thought of the treatment of Lina and Steph .
