Heide hi

The Saturday Paper - - Diary -

One of the high­lights of the trip to Yar­ra­side was a side ex­cur­sion to Heide, the for­mer dairy farm and romp­ing ground of John and Sun­day Reed, Sid Nolan, Bert Tucker, John Perce­val,

Joy Hester, An­gry Pen­guins and oth­ers.

Gad­fly was nos­tal­gi­cally flung back to a pe­riod when we had time to churn but­ter, make our own soap, swap part­ners, paint bushrangers and lay about in the Pater­son’s curse hav­ing cups of tea.

What heaven – soon shat­tered by re­turn­ing to the ho­tel in Lit­tle Collins Street with its men­ac­ing view of the hulk­ing Lubyanka, the Her­ald Sun build­ing.
