All proceeds from this seminar will go to Youngcare – a charity organisation that aims to provide residential care for young people with diabilities. Young Australians with catastrophic injuries or illnesses (like Motor Neurons or Multiple Sclerosis) have few alternatives but to live in aged care, which we believe is unacceptable. Not only is the medical care inappropriate (its designed for the elderly), everything about the environment is telling them their life is over. Aged care is no place for any young person. Young people deserve young lives. And that’s where the wonderful organisation Youngcare comes in…
Social Media: Forward to Basics
When: 6.30pm – 8.30pm, Wednesday 21st April, 2010
Where: Sir Stamford at Circular Quay
Cost: $50 with all proceeds going to Youngcare

We look forward to seeing you there!

The team from Australian Traveller celebrated the launch of their Top 100 with some of Australia’s best-loved foodies on Tuesday 23rd March at The Observatory Hotel.

Australian Traveller editor Greg Barton says: “The end result is a marker for where Australian food experiences are in the country right now. “Cooking schools have also well and truly arrived. Other key findings were the great interest in heirloom or heritage varieties of produce, which have unique and unexpected flavour profiles. Kitchen gardens that provide instant organic produce are also well established at most great gourmet experiences .”
