Ten year old Georgia Tolley has a gift that no-one can explain. All animals are drawn to her. But it’s what happens when she’s around horses that’s proving to be the most inspiring…
Georgia’s mother actually discovered her unique affinity with animals by accident. She was sitting in her special wheelchair on their family property in central Victoria when she noticed that horses wouldn’t leave her alone. But the love is far from one way. In fact, Georgia, who suffers from a rare genetic condition that affects her brain function, is transformed when she’s around them. As her mum Stacey puts it, she ‘lights up like a Christmas tree. They get responses from her we can’t, even when she’s really unwell.’
Georgia is not alone in experiencing incredible physical and emotional benefits from animal therapy yet science is still unable to explain exactly why it works. Some evidence suggests that animals trigger a beneficial change in brain wave activity. Either way, this gift of Georgia’s is proving to be priceless for both her and her equine friends; who clearly remain besotted…

Remarkable Cave - for anyone who hasn't seen just how big the swell can get, you need to watch this. The waves come right up and OVER the viewing platform... it's pretty scary.
Just 500 metres past the entrance to the Port Arthur Historic Sites, Tasmania along Nubeena Road there is a left turn that reads: "Remarkable Cave" :) A pathway which includes 130 odd stairs takes visitors down to the viewing platform which provides a view looking through the cave out to sea. It is remarkable not only for its unique form, but also because when viewed from the observation platform, the opening on the ocean-side is the shape of Tasmania. The cave is now a rock bridge carved out of the sandstone cliff face, but it was once a deep cave. The viewing platform at the bottom of steep stairs is where the back of the cave collapsed. The debris has long since been washed out to sea except for the large sea-smoothed boulders that remain in the hollow.

The Murray River today. 400kms of toxic blue-green algal bloom. Red alert warning from Albury to Swan Hill, too toxic to touch, irrigate or give to stock. Nationals and Liberals with support of Labor gutted the MDB Plan and this is the result. Poor fellow my country.
