Heritage & History

Updated: May 30, 2022

✦ Brilliant April 2022

Ben Tirebuck, Editor, Brilliant-Online

Welcome one and all to April’s edition of Brilliant-Online.

It is that time of the year once again when we all enjoy the numerous splendours that Easter has to offer – typically spending time with family and loved ones, enjoying a hearty meal, Easter egg hunts with the kids and, of course, indulging in our fair share of chocolate eggs and bilbeys!

This month we’re going back in time with a focus on heritage as we take a peek into the back-stories of local businesses such as Harold Vickery & Son, the Douglas Vale Homestead and Winery, Wauchope APEX and the Hastings District Flying Club. We also learn more about the acclaimed Mrs York’s Garden and serve up a history lesson on the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge.


Elsewhere, we catch up with Port Macquarie’s own soon-to-be flying physio as we chat to aspiring pilot Alasdair Thomson of PhyxYou. TG’s tells us about their “Munch & Move” initiative, and Dr Namira Williams, CEO of disAbility Maternity Care, offers some invaluable maternity advice for parents with disabilities.

With Easter upon us, we also take a whirlwind trip around the world to learn some of the more curious, often humorous and sometimes downright dangerous traditions for celebrating the occasion. My Blue Tea shares a scrumptous recipe for Hot Cross Buns and we check in with Wauchope Creative Hub’s recent Purple Rain exhibition winner Alycia Lipovac. Last and perhaps least, yours truly shares a personal history on the generations-long heritage of being a sports club fan.

We hope you enjoy the electic range of stories we have brought you this Easter, preferably while getting stuck into a yummy chocolate egg – go on, it’s Easter after all!
