Key Personnel Petra de Mooy Petra would like to thank staff, freelance writers and photographers, advertisers and subjects who have helped us to create FLM over these past six years. It has been an incredible journey. Jason Porter Jason has worked as a graphic designer and creative director both locally and overseas for over thirty years. When not in the office, he can usually be found tweaking the crossover filters on his ridiculously over-the-top hi-fi system. Esther Thorn Esther Thorn is a storyteller. She has worked as a journalist for twenty years in print, radio and television. Esther believes small things, like commas and apostrophes, are important. This makes her an irritating dinner guest but a good editor. Holly Wyatt Sinking her roots into the Fleurieu has truly resonated with Holly. She loves peeling back the layers of…

welcome to flm

From the FLM team FLM is turning six. It seems like only yesterday that we had our fifth anniversary party. As we go to print with issue 25, it is cause for pause and reflection. I was listening to a podcast about the future of print media and journalism in the digital age, and it was nice to have what we already feel about our hard copy publication, validated. Although online media has a vast audience, it is missing a few key elements that it may never achieve. ‘Print is still a really great technology. It has a great battery life and the content lasts.’ Indeed many people have the entire 25-issue collection of FLM at home. People often don’t throw magazines away. ‘There are no load times and the content doesn’t drop…

happy sixth anniversary flm

The magazine also has longevity. At a recent visit to the doctor with a snuffly toddler, I picked up a dog-eared copy of FLM in the waiting room. By chance it was the first issue I wrote for, five years ago. I flicked through it and there was that same sense of longevity in a fast-paced world. It was during my daughter’s tenth tantrum of the morning that I decided to write a story for Fleurieu Living Magazine. My husband and I had just moved to the region with our two children – both under two years old – and I was drowning in a sea of nappies and dirty washing. As each new season rolled in, I’d eagerly anticipate the arrival of the next issue. For me, the magazine was more…

a hidden treasure

‘That was our cubby up there in the hayloft,’ David Hunt tells me, pointing behind us to the two-storey limestone building that is Ivybrook Farm’s new cellar door. We’re sitting in the shadow of the historic building sipping a glass of Ivybrook Farm Tempranillo, made from grapes grown in the valley just below. The view opens up before us; golden paddocks kissed with green by the first autumn rains, lush vineyards and a vast blue sky. It’s a view that hasn’t changed in decades and almost everywhere I cast my eye, there are the fingerprints of David Hunt and his family. ‘My Mum and Dad still come back to the property pretty regularly,’ David says. ‘They’re both 86 but they’re still involved; Mum sketched the picture for our wine label and…

ideas on the fleurieu

01. Brenton Carle Brenton runs guided canoeing and kayaking tours through his business, Canoe the Coorong. The business is also involved in community outreach, with groups like Dyslexia SA, CanTeen and CanDo4Kids. For Brenton it is all about moving kids into a different environment for a great experience. Brenton has created a lifestyle business out of his passion and as he says ‘it’s not all about the classroom’. Who do you think is doing great things on the Fleurieu? The Goolwa Tourism Association is doing good work by trying to get all of the local operators to link in and promote the area as a whole. Brenton would like to see the Fleurieu as the major tourist destination of the state for national and international travellers. 02. Larissa Barry Larissa Barry is married and lives…
