Is hydrogen part of a sustainable energy future?

There’s a lot to like about hydrogen. For starters, it’s abundant. Hydrogen can store excess renewable power. When liquified, it’s more energy intense than fossil alternatives. In a fuel cell, it can generate electricity. When it’s burned, the only by-product is water.

The original Mullumbimby Seventies market.

The Saturday Mullum Market harbours the best-kept secret in town – a museum – open on the day.

The museum is housed in Mullumbimby’s old post office. It is one of the most interesting local history museums in Australia with a rare permanent exhibition of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s alternative people and culture. It has free screenings of the hippie docos plus many fascinating changing displays.

The market is every 3rd Saturday of the month from 8am till 2pm, at the corner of Stuart and Myokum Streets. Follow the signs to great coffee, food, unusual gifts, records, a large range of local artisan products, and much more.

Free music. Turn on and drop in this Saturday.
