Overwhelming response to wild deer community survey

The Port Macquarie-Hastings community has provided an overwhelming response to the recent survey conducted by North Coast Local Land Services into wild deer experiences.The Port Macquarie-Hastings community has provided an overwhelming response to the recent survey conducted by North Coast Local Land Services into wild deer experiences, LLS says.

The Hastings Wild Deer Working Group will now use the community input to help guide the development of the Hastings Wild Deer Management Strategy.

The community survey was conducted in Port Macquarie during September to gather information on where wild deer were spotted and what impacts were being experienced.

There were 194 surveys completed, with 349 locations identified where wild deer had been sighted.

Numerous suburbs and localities were identified as locations where the community was concerned about wild deer impacts. These included The Point Drive, Lincoln Road, Koala Street, Thrumster, Lake Innes Drive, Lake Cathie, Bonny View Drive and the Pacific Highway “doughnut”.

The Land Services officer for North Coast Local Land Services who is analysing the data, Josh Bean, said, “We’ve gained some really useful insights into wild deer in the region including the community sighting wild deer on a daily or weekly basis and usually at night.

“From the data, we have also identified that a local wild deer herd consists of two to five individuals, with some larger herds of five to 10 wild deer.”

Manager Biosecurity and Emergency Services and Chair of the Hastings Wild Deer Working Group Jo McGoldrick said, “As we anticipated, the main impacts from wild deer are the significant damage to gardens and the traffic hazard to road users.

“There are a range of reasons why collectively we need to address the growing wild deer population, including reports of wild deer being aggressive to people and pets in the area and the threat that wild deer pose to local koala populations.”

Based on this survey, an estimated cost of the damage that wild deer are having on the local community is at least $120,000 a year.

This survey data will now be used in the development of a Wild Deer Management Strategy with the objective to protect key assets, such as controlling wild deer in proximity to roads and around the highly impacted suburbs.

Detailed survey results and an opportunity to continue the conversation on the wild deer issue are available at http://open.northcoast. lls.nsw.gov419论坛/.

A food dream in Halls Gap

“I have strong memories of making scones, of a home filled with the smell of roasts, and it made me understand the emotional connection we have with food,” Carly said.

“I lost sight of that a bit in my teens –I think we all do at that age –but then when I moved out of home and began cooking for myself I had the desire to create memories through those food experiences.”

Carly’s food passion developed into an interest in Victoria’s food productionand the ‘paddock to plate’ movement.

While the idea of developing a provedore and cafe had been developing for a few years (a few “red wine chats about what we would do”, as Carly puts it),it wasn’t until a visit to Halls Gap in August that everything seemed to come together.

When asking people where to go for food that was expressly “Grampians”, Carly said no one had a strong answer.

“It lit a light bulb for us.Here was an opportunity to do what we’ve been talking about,” Carly said.

A speculative email to real estate agents led to a find: A backpackers that had seen better days.

“We knew, before we got out of the car park, before we even set foot on the property, that this was going to be it,” Carly said.

“There were the big beautiful trees, the relaxed vibe of the place. This was somewhere you could relax and watch the world go by.”

Keeping the leadlight windows, fireplaces and exterior intact, the inside was completely rebuilt. The focus was on creating a space that was comfortable and textured. Timber throughout provides warmth and a homely feel, while textured paints and hand-made tiles help to create an inviting place for a cup of coffee or meal.

Just prior to renovating the cafe, the couple had commissioned work outfittingthe two self-contained units on site, which Richard will manage.

And just in case they didn’t have enough to do, the couple tied the knot a week before the grand opening on November 13.

“It’s all been very high-energy and we’ve seen so many positive things happening,” Carly said.

She said she was excited to be part of people’s special experiences, including providing a picnic basket for a marriage proposal a week ago.

“Coming from outside the area, we’re really humbled about how we’ve already become part of people’s lives. I didn’t realise how much I would enjoy that.”

This week the couple expects to receive their liquor licence and will settle into a groove before the expected Christmas rush.

Flying high with Cirque Du Soliel

Photo by Matt BeardRUNNING away to the circus might be the childhood cliche, but Cirque Du Soleil performer Lisa Skinner and assistant head of rigging Robert Wilson are two Australians who have travelled the world living the dream.
Nanjing Night Net

As a gymnast with three Olympic Games, four World Championships and two Commonwealth Games gold medals under her belt, Skinner was used to performing in front of big crowds before joining Cirque Du Soleil almost nine years ago.

But switching from the competitive to the creative side of gymnastics had one fundamental difference for the only Australian performer on the final tour of Cirque show Quidam.

“In competition you’re trained to block out the crowd and just concentrate on what you’re doing perfectly,” she says.

“Here [with Cirque] no matter what you’re doing, whether you screw up or do it better or worse, you have to bring the audience in to what you’re doing and express things in a theatrical sense.

“They don’t care if you’re perfect or not, they just want to see something cool.”

And in Quidam “cool” is what she and the two other aerial hoop performers aim to deliver when they pivot, twirl and spin so fast hoops and performers become indistinguishable silver-and-red blurs high above the stage – although she insists they could spin faster if it weren’t for the weight of the metal apparatuses.

It’s Wilson’s responsibility, with his two fellow riggers, to keep people and objects suspended safely.

He started as a casual crew member on Cirque’s previous Australian tours in his home town of Brisbane, after leaving the printing industry, before he started touring as “part of the family” in 2007.

“I did it for a few weeks then I looked up to the roof and there were guys climbing around and

hanging stuff and I thought, ‘That looks like fun, how do I get to do that’?”, he said.

“In a job where people’s lives are in your hands it takes a little while to get established, but after a while when you get a reputation it snowballs from there.”

Before her time with Quidam, Skinner performed on the trampoline in Alegria; she is now also the back-up for one of Quidam’s principal characters, Target, putting her hip-hop and breakdance background to use.

When she tours with Cirque’s Quidam from December, it will be her first time performing on Australian soil and she admits it’s a prospect she finds nerve-racking.

“Ordinarily, you can do it [perform] half asleep,” she said with a laugh.

“You can be in front of thousands of people that you don’t know and you’ll be fine, but as soon as you know one person like your mum or dad is out there you get butterflies.”

Although the Brisbane-born artist isn’t playing to her home crowd, she expects to see a few familiar faces when she returns to Canberra’s Australian Institute of Sport Arena after spending two of her teenage years training at the institute.

“I went to Canberra High and we had house parents and lots of other kids there to play with, even though you were mostly training,” she says of her time in the capital.

“It was freezing in winter, I was like ‘what is this white crunchy grass’?”

Although the Aussies credit Cirque with allowing them to see the world, both admit there is a downside to the touring lifestyle.

Skinner says living out of two suitcases gets old fast, and Wilson misses the home comforts and says it’s the little things in life that make him happy, such as scoring accommodation with his own washing machine and kitchen.

“You get a bit of a tweak at times like Christmas, it would be nice to be with your family but it’s not always practical, but the good definitely outweighs the bad,” Wilson says.

Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam tour begins in Canberra at the AIS Arena from December 10 to 20.

Wollongong from December 23 to January 2 at the WIN Entertainment Centre. Hobart from January 6 to 10 at the Derwent Entertainment Centre. Newcastle from January 15 to 24 at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre. To buy tickets or for more information visit: cirquedusoleil南京夜网/quidam
