Whales in Kakadu


https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ep55m-eb93bf

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


https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-4rqa6-ead278

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 :https://www.hachette.com.au/kellie-arrowsmith/skimpy-the-funniest-book-you-ll-ever-read-about-the-northern-territory or all good online bookstores inc Kindle , Apple books etc

Hotel Coolgardie


https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-cgbfg-e9f56f

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 .

 

For more Aussie stories from the Gold Coast to the Outback you can find my book ‘Skimpy’ here : https://www.hachette.com.au/kellie-arrowsmith/skimpy-the-funniest-book-you-ll-ever-read-about-the-northern-territory

“Rated E for Bloody Epic !”


13015250_10153558143063587_5766969791402273149_n (1)

In November last year I flew up to the Territory on a top-secret mission involving the best of the best of NT’s film industry 😉

Some of you might know my mate , Phil O’Brien who was my inspiration to start this blog and , eventually my book. Halfway through last year he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse – a free trip to the Territory including 2 nights free all meals included at the iconic Mt Bundy Station  in return for my acting ‘skills’ ( I use that term very lightly !).

It was a great trip – Mt Bundy isn’t far from the Adelaide river pub so there was no shortage of booze and I got to meet some bloody awesome people including NT’s own Miss Universe contestant , Chrisney Bright who is also a tour guide for  Outback Floatplane Adventures  ( thinking about sending her my resume haha) and a bush poet called Waldo who kept us entertained between filming .

After much anticipation this ‘Bloody Epic’ Film has finally been released

It all begins with Phil O’Brien – who wrote , produced and directed the film . Picking up where he left off on his last film ‘On Tour and Looking for a Feed’ , he has decided to rejoin society after 18 months ‘off the grid’. He leaves his longgrasser mate on the side of the road in Darwin , a long neck in a brown paper bag his parting gift. He decides to head out to Corella Springs , where his old mate Ben has a cattle station and the rest of his mates could be found at the local pub , The Old Brumby Moon , famous for its Big Buff Lager and the towns best coffee – the ‘Tappachino’.

On his way out to Corella Springs he comes across his old mate  Ben’s daughters ( played by myself and Tayla Baxter ) and discovers his old mate has passed away and the bank is closing in on the Cattle Station

Phil decides to try to help them raise the money but everyone in the town of Corella Springs is too busy to help him . After a bit of detective work he tracks down his old mate Al Zimdahl and after a bit of convincing Al agrees to join him on his mission to save the girls and their Dad’s Station. Do they or don’t they ? You’ll just have to watch and find out !

In Phils words

‘  Made on a handful of small change this 90 minute chunk of Outback Filmology stars Phil O’Brien Al Zimdahl David Gulpilil Daniel Tapp Elisa Guittet Alizee Sery Chrisney Bright Kellie Arrowsmith Waldo Bayley Tayla Baxter Trevor Primmer Heleana Yarrngu Ursula Zaar and a heap of other fine young thespians. Filmed at Spectacular Mt Bundy station Rated ‘ E’ for bloody Epic’

If anyone would like to order  the best film to come out of the Territory you can email me kelsgonebush@gmail.com or message my Facebook page Kels Gone Bush . It’s also available to rent on Vimeo
