Bully Forbes

Captain ‘Bully’ Forbes was a likeable rogue who tried to break the record in 1855 by sailing from Liverpool to Geelong in 60 days aboard the luxury clipper, “Schomberg”. “Bully” was below deck playing cards and entertaining female passengers when the mate informed him that the Schomberg was getting close to the land. Forbes, frustrated by bad weather and no chance of breaking the record, cried, "Let her go to hell, and tell me when she is on the beach!" …and that’s where it ended up.

Sam Doolin and Rebecca Baird for...

Two Mile

A fiercely guarded secret, this wave off the coast of Port Campbell has become a mecca for the big wave riders in the country. This place truly can get huge, and hold its size. Locals may snarl at you, but the honest truth is that your chances of surfing this wave are as about as likely as winning on the pokies.

Lisa Togni for...

The Promiscuous Ale

No Name Required refers to the odd one 'nighter' at Hostels where the ships pass in the night and you never see them again! So we refer to this beer as The Promiscuous Ale, for that little spark of courage needed for a little conversation and consequent action. (…once said by The King Elvis).

Des Hughes for...

Gurley Gold

Way, way back, on the sunburnt plains of northwestern NSW, near that great village of Gurley, three men powered by beer toiled long hours bringing in the harvest, trucking it in bulk to the nearest silo. At the end of the harvest a very special wheat was collected in bags before sunup, sewn securely by a Kamilaroi elder and secreted away before dawn. Those bags contained the DNA of what would become Sow and Piglets wheat beer (plus a few of the local sheilas). This special wheat DNA of Gurley Gold that you are about to taste pays homage in thanks to those who nurtured it - shake gently, it still has a headache.
