THE jobs most peo­ple shirk from are the ones Daryl Mil­lar rel­ishes and his hill-mow­ing tech­nique is the stuff of le­gend at Bar­won River Hol­i­day Park.

The long-time res­i­dent (pic­tured) does odd jobs around the park, in­clud­ing wran­gling the stretchy rope around the mower to keep the Barra­bool Rd frontage look­ing a treat. Bar­won River Hol­i­day Park man­ager Marc Gar­row said the shy Mr Mil­lar was an as­set to the park, which is pre­par­ing for a bumper sum­mer sea­son full of vis­i­tors.

“He works for us a cer­tain amount of hours per week. He cleans the ameni­ties blocks and he ac­tu­ally en­joys mow­ing those banks, which is good... be­cause it’s ac­tu­ally hard work,” he said.

“Daryl’s taken that on in the last 12 months and while he’s en­joy­ing it I’ll leave him to it.”

Mr Gar­row said Christ­mas book­ings were look­ing promis­ing and Gee­long had plenty of events to keep him chock-a-block.
