With Australia Day 2015 only a matter of days away, I was reminded of the excitement within Breakfast Point when one of our residents was a recipient of the award last year. Sue Campbell-Lloyd has resided amongst us for six and a half years now.  I had met her on several occasions, but yesterday I had an opportunity to sit and have a most rewarding chat about her award and life, generally, in Breakfast Point.

The historic brick Gatehouse that once guarded the entrance to the Mortlake Gas Company is the premises of the B.P. Men’s Shed. In 2013, with financial assistance and clever planning, a group of Breakfast Point residents turned the space within the gatehouse into an incredible workshop. I was pleased to be invited to visit the shed by Stewart McAlister, a founding member of the Men’s Shed.  Stewart and his thirty  fellow members have adapted the

The air is fresh to breathe and the scent of green grass, trees and the

Another season another fantastic period for Sydney real estate. Hi I’m Cameron Nicholls and welcome to out winter market wrap from the original Royal Sydney, Concord Golf Club.

THIS sounds like a really trivial sort of thing but I have a thing for those hot towels that waiters hand you at the start of a meal at Chinese restaurants. You know those ones that smell a little bit like dettol — but in a good way? I put those towels right up there with things like cake and shoes — ie: You can never have too many. So imagine the joy upon discovering
