She loves working with all of the creatives on the Fleurieu to showcase the best the region has to offer. Jason Porter Jason has worked as a graphic designer and creative director both locally and overseas for over thirty years.

Poppy Fitzpatrick With a background in journalism, photography and film, Poppy thrives in the creative space where words and visuals meet. Despite relocating to the city, it seems she can’t quite resist the pull of the region as the kilometres on her car might suggest. As a sixth generation Fleurieu-dweller, it’s safe to say that the food, wine, hills and coast have made their mark on her life’s direction. Olivia Wells Olivia is a first-time contributor to Fleurieu Living Magazine. She’s worked in community development, research and writing for many years and loves nothing more than the chance to bring all these interests together by writing about community projects and art ventures.

welcome to flm

From the FLM team Is the Fleurieu landscape ever more beautiful than in the soft light of autumn? The gentler weather has transformed the hills from gold to green, while the vine leaves glow auburn.

Together, property owner Ian Bromell and his close mate, retired farmer Kym Denver, have built their version of the great Australian woolshed, not merely from the authentic materials of shearing sheds past, but from the stories and folklore that go along with them. And now Ian and wife Jane are inviting others to come and share in what’s been created. ‘Everything’s come from somewhere,’ Ian muses,…
