South-East Oz Pt 1: Stanthorpe to Lake Cargelligo sunshinecoastbirds

Shy Hylacola

We left home on September 6 for a lengthy road trip through NSW and Victoria. First stop was Glen Alpin near Stanthorpe, staying by the Severn River at the Country Style Caravan Park. There were plenty of Dusky Woodswallows here. It's always nice to be in the Granite Belt but we could do without the weather down to -2 on our first morning.

Dusky Woodswallow
We moved on to Armidale the next day, calling in on the excellent birding area along Old Wallangarra Road, where a Yellow-footed Antechinus was of interest in the short time available. A couple of Little Eagles were seen on the way south for a 2-night stay in the Armidale Tourist Park. I spent a full morning in the ironbark woodlands of the Yarrowyck area west of Armidale, along Gwydir Park Road and Gwydir River Road.

Council Making Millions from Littering Fines in the Valley and More Zedlines... "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

Over two thirds of all Brisbane littering fines issued last year were from the Fortitude Valley nightclub district, according to the latest figures. (Image source: Wikimedia Commons)

In total, these fines have made $1.5 million for Brisbane City Council, but the fines certainly arent great for punters.

Simon Turner from the Fortitude Valley Safe Night Out Precinct said people are being fined as much as $250 for dropping cigarette butts on the footpath.

Mr Turner also said the council were hiring police officers to work with ticket inspectors who targeted customers lined up outside of clubs.

Over the last couple of days, a pair of RACQ LifeFlight aero medical bizjets have been noted calling into various CQ Airports on different medical evacuation flights.

Late on Tuesday 5 September, LifeFlight's LearJet 45 bizjet VH-CXJ "Ambulance 452" was noted visiting Mackay Airport on a med-evac flight from and back to Townsville.

Also very late on Tuesday 5 September, LifeFlight's Cessna 680 Citation Sovereign bizjet VH-VPL "Ambulance 680" was noted calling into Rockhampton Airport, arriving from the Gold Coast.

In the wee small hours of Wednesday 6 September, VH-VPL then departed Rocky for Brisbane.

Then late on Thursday 7 September, VH-CXJ was back in CQ arriving into Rockhampton Airport from Townsville.  It then departed to Moranbah Airport before departing there to Brisbane, touching down very early on Friday 8 September.  It then returned to Townsville.

Of interest, fellow LifeFlight LearJet 45 VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" is presently at Sydney (possibly) undertaking planned maintenance.

Palm Island Mayor compares Australia Day with the Jewish Holocaust | Welcome To Country "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Palm Island Mayor compares Australia Day with the Jewish Holocaust | Welcome To Country: The final question asked by Councillor Lacey was, Do the Jewish celebrate the Holocaust? To which he answered, No, they remember the sad part of it. This was published in the Courier Mail almost four weeks ago in an article titled: Australia Day date: Brisbane has no plans to change, says Graham Quirk.

Do you see what is happening here? This is yet another case of mainstream media trying to manipulate the national conversation. When an Indigenous person says what the Palm Island mayor said, the story stops dead in its tracks. The media only want to portray the Australia Day debate as coming solely from lefties and green groups etc.

The media also loves to find the odd blackfulla who loves Australia day as well. Im sure you would have heard about those stories right? Well if you want to throw a spanner in the works of mainstream media manipulation, you can help us out by sharing this story. Lets keep the true conversation going from the original source.


Civil Liberties March of 67 remembered 50 years on Westender West End 4101

On September 8, 1967, 4000 students marched from University of Queenslands St. Lucia campus to the centre of Brisbane, to protest for rights to free speech and public protesting. Upon being obstructed by police, the students staged a mass sit-down protest in Roma Street. By the end of the day, over 120 student protestors had been []

Brisbane Walls Graffiti and Street Art "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

The Art of Graffiti Writing

This is the final draft of the forward I was invited to write for a new book by Brisbane photojournalist, Toks Ojo. Toks has photographed and collated a vast amount of current graffiti/street art in Brisbane into Brisbane Walls, Graffiti and Street Art. The book is due for release later this year. 


2018 will mark 20 years since I began an alchemists experiment with graffiti. I invited graffiti writers into a conservative enclave to publicly demonstrate their art. It was a bold and maybe nave move but it was the beginning of Jugglers, at that time a bi-monthly celebration of fine art, music, graffiti, comedy, poetry reading and coffee in, of all things, a north Brisbane suburban church context.

I was the minister of a large protestant congregation and I had begun feeling deeply frustrated with its sterile and utilitarian approach to the arts. Not only that church but the whole religious paradigm and its dualistic approach to life, spirituality and subsequently, art had become stuck. I needed a push through the door that was opening.

Jugglers effectively became my wide open door out of the restrictions of that paradigm into a new life where graffiti would feature as the writing on the wall and the metaphor for a new l...

High-profile Brisbane lawyer Sam Di Carlo has appeared briefly in court on charges of perjury, drug and ammunition offences after allegedly lying to Queenslands corruption watchdog.

The 60-year-old was arrested earlier this month over allegations by the Crime and Corruption Commission that he lied to an investigative hearing.

Di Carlo, who has been in the headlines since claiming that the $50,000 in cash carried by former Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale at the Melbourne Airport belonged to a client of his, will apply in Brisbane Magistrates Court later on Tuesday to vary his bail so he can have contact with a solicitor.

THIRSTY MERC "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

15 years ago, Thirsty Merc bounded onto the music scene with their Summertime sounds, making their mark on radio and TV over the ensuing years and to celebrate this milestone, the band are heading back out on the road on their Take Me Back Tour kicking off in Brisbane on 2 November.


Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002 releasing their debut EP, First Work, in September, 2003, before being signed to Warner Music.  The bands big break came in 2004 with the release of their debut, self titled, album which included the hits, Someday Someday and In The Summertime (the theme for Bondi Rescue since 2006).


Two more studio albums followed Slideshows in 2007 (#4 ARIA Album) and Mousetrap Heart in 2010 (#14 on the ARIA Album chart) which included radio staples, 20 Good Reasons, Mousetrap Heart and Tommy and Krista


Fast forward to 2015 Thirsty Merc released Shifting Gears, their first wholly independent and first new material in five years and spent the next few months crossing the country; running up thousands of Frequent Flyer points and sold out shows.


Besides the hits, the Take Me Back Tour is a celebration of all the music along the way and fans can expect to hear songs theyve never heard the band perform live before.

Lead singer, Rai Thistlethwayte, said today: Its thanks to the fans that were still here, loving life and music, 15 years later and this tour is a big thank you to everyone whos sung along with us over the years, as well as a great opportunity to dust off some songs weve never included in our shows.

Tickets for Thirsty Mercs Take Me Back Tour shows are on sale NOW.

Shifting Gears is out now through MGM Distribution

Surprise artefact discovery for workers on Queens Wharf and more Zedlines "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

As part of the Queens Wharf developments, a number of workers have uncovered pieces of kerb believed to be originating from the 1830s (image credit: orderinchaos).

The Kerb stones are believed to have been part of the original convict-hewn kerb of William Street.

The Brisbane City Council has a policy in place which requires stones such as this to be permanently removed, and surrendered to the council for future use.

State Development Minister Anthony Lynham has promised the stones will be preserved, with more artefacts expected to be uncovered during the construction.
