Wel­come to our sec­ond is­sue of North East Liv­ing mag­a­zine.

North East Living Magazine - - Contents - Jeff Zeuschner | ED­I­TOR

We have been heart­ened by the pos­i­tive re­sponses we’ve re­ceived from the first edi­tion – so much so that the mag­a­zine will now be pub­lish­ing three times a year, in Sum­mer, Au­tumn/ Win­ter, and Spring.

Feed­back from our read­ers re­flected a gen­uine ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the va­ri­ety of sto­ries in the first edi­tion, cel­e­brat­ing as­pects and peo­ple that help make our North East re­gion the envy of many other parts of Aus­tralia.

That flavour car­ries through into this edi­tion of North East Liv­ing, with the mag­a­zine’s fun­da­men­tal premise to help share the rich di­ver­sity, his­tory, vi­brant arts and cul­ture, fine wines and cui­sine, won­der­ful hospi­tal­ity ex­pe­ri­ences, nat­u­ral beauty and wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer – en­cap­su­lated by so many in­ter­est­ing peo­ple who call our re­gion home.

In this edi­tion we catch up with Aus­tralia’s ‘ voice of sports’ Craig Wil­lis, who when not tak­ing cen­tre stage at the MCG on grand fi­nal day, is hap­pily at home in the high coun­try near Mans­field.

Over at Yackandandah we have the mu­si­cal mae­stro Pete De­nahy, as well as renowned sculp­tor Ben Gil­bert, who are fine ex­am­ples of cre­ative tal­ents able to ex­cel in their fields with­out hav­ing to sac­ri­fice their cher­ished life­style in a ru­ral town­ship.

This edi­tion also looks at lo­cal ef­forts to re­store iconic cat­tle­men’s huts, give new life and pur­pose to our iconic old to­bacco kilns, and also get out and make the most of our pris­tine en­vi­ron­ment from the seat of a moun­tain bike.

We hope you find the lo­cal sto­ries in­ter­est­ing, and per­haps may even in­spire some Spring ac­tiv­ity.
