Ian prefers salvaged timbers, using mainly native blackwood and Huon pine, with some exotic species or other feature woods. ...

Four Pillars Gin have a NEW GIN coming out on Tuesday the 16th of March and it promises to be spicy. ๐ŸŒถ ๐ŸŒถNew gin alert! And it might just be our spiciest release yet, in every sense.

Our Distiller Series adventures so far have taken Cam around the world from Spain in 2015 (hola Cousin Vera) to Sweden in 2017 (big hugs to the legends at Hernรถ) and onwards to Japan in 2019 (inspiring the crowd favourite Changing Seasons Gin).

Now 2020 was a bit different in that Cam wasnโ€™t able to go much further than the 150m from his house to the Distillery. But the wonders of the Zoom machine still allowed him to cook up another epic collaboration. It was an incredible, colourful, spicy and unique journey that has seen us arrive at our fourth Distiller Series ginโ€ฆ and itโ€™s out on Tuesday 16 March.

So get readyโ€ฆitโ€™s coming in hot!

This is a very good reminder from Hillcrest Fire Brigade to be extra careful driving over this coming long weekend.So the Labour Day long weekend is just around the corner with Monday 8 March being a public holiday. We are asking for drivers to be extra cautious on the roads with an expected increase in traffic. The most common incident CFA responded to over the last Labour Day long weekend were motor vehicle collisions - in fact over 50 of them across the state, with over half involving injuries.

Make your Labour Day long weekend one to remember for all the right reasons - not because you spent it with emergency services personnel.

Motor vehicle crashes deeply impact our communities, families, friends, colleagues and emergency responders. Most road trauma incidents are avoidable. Speed, driver fatigue and driver distractions such as mobile phones often cause collisions and all of which are preventable. So getting to your location late is better than not arriving at all; make sure you are well rested or share the driving or pull over for 15 minutes and leave your phones alone or have your passenger answer your phone instead!

It will be great to be out and about enjoying your long weekend, but we need you to do your part in helping us limit the number of motor vehicle collisions across our state this coming long weekend. Emergency services want to spend time with their families and friends also - but if we are needed we will be there to respond. ๐Ÿš’

With starring?

Is it just staring or performing an Indecent act whilst staring. There is a huge difference. . This is going too. far if he was just staring.

Probably most likely a tourist Warburton was quiet until people started googling

We had the same issue last year around January/feb too. Same act different description. Freaking all the women out on the Warburton trail

Why wait 6 weeks ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ

FYIResidents in Mount Dandenong, Montrose and Kalorama may see or smell smoke from the ignition of two planned burns in Dandenong Ranges National Park on Thursday 4 March:
๐Ÿ‘‰ A 9-hectare planned burn at Kyeema Track East, Mount Dandenong and
๐Ÿ‘‰ A 5.5-hectare planned burn at Rowdys Track, Montrose. A number of tracks in and around the area will be closed while the burn is being carried out. This burn is being carried out across public and private land in partnership with CFA (Country Fire Authority).

The two planned burns are being carried out for asset protection and are focussed on helping to protect the surrounding community and public infrastructure โ€“ they will slow the spread of bushfires and providing opportunities for our firefighters to conduct successful suppression operations during bushfire response.

Weather permitting, both burns will be completed by Thursday evening and crews will remain on-site throughout the night and in the days following to patrol the areas.

Under the current public health advice, planned burning is continuing across Victoria. During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we continue to work closely with the Department of Health and Environment Protection Authority to ensure we keep the smoke impacts from planned burning as low as practically possible.

Our crews are adhering to appropriate physical distancing and hygiene requirements to ensure we can safely continue our operations across the state.
To find out when and where planned burns are happening near you, go to or sign up at www.vic.gov.au/plannedburns or call 1800 226 226.

About Adrian Berry

I moved to Warburton in the Yarra Valley with my family in the middle of 2015. It was freezing and rained for the first 3 weeks and I wondered what I'd gotten in to. Since then I have fallen in love with the Valley, which is not hard to do, due to it's beauty and vibrant community.
