Water is scarce! So here are some water-saving tips that you can do right now. 

While Australia is well and truly the lucky country it is also the driest continent on this planet outside Antarctica. It means that we are constantly at risk of drought and It is usually a case of how severe and how long rather than when. 

There is no denying that we have seen some of the harshest conditions in Australia over the last few years with warmer and drier weather. The data below is information from the Bureau of Meteorology and just shows how hot and dry it has been.

Migration important to population growth

RDA Orana 30 January 2020

Regional Development Australia (RDA) Orana director Megan Dixon said the Orana region has huge potential for an expanded population, with migration support and economic development paramount for future growth.

“Migration to Australia’s regional areas has already had a positive effect on employment levels, community growth and economic development,” she said.

“Skilled migration has contributed to rural and regional communities struggling with labour shortage, family drift and changing market demands.”

A Tale of Two Barbaras - Catherine Wallace

Monday 9 March, 2020

In this lecture we look at the work of two fe-male sculptors who lived in Cornwall, UK for most of their lives. Barbara Hepworth (1903–1975) became a leading light in the modernist movement in British art. Barbara Tribe (1913 – 2000) came from Australia and was a talent-ed sculptor. She returned to Australia on many occasions in later life. We take a fascinating in depth look at the similarities and differences in the work of these two pioneering female artists of the 20th Century.
