Winter cricket for over-45s gets underway with some big hitting

The inaugural Far North Coast over-45s winter cricket league got off to a great start with over 400 runs...

This is the charming and captivating true story of a stubborn, self-centred Australian man who decides to walk the 800-kilometre-long Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route through Spain. He doesn’t know why he’s doing it… but one step at a time, it will change him and his outlook on life forever.

The film is based on filmmaker Bill Bennett’s best-selling memoir of the same name.

He sets off, not sure why he is doing it, and not feeling comfortable. His discomfort increases markedly a few days later when his knee gives out – so the rest of the walk was a ‘pain management pilgrimage,’ Bill says.

‘I’d never done anything crazy like this before – a pilgrimage walk. I was not a hiker, and I wasn’t a Catholic. In fact, I wasn’t even sure I was a Christian. On the last government census when I had to state my religion, I’d said I was a Buddhist, mainly because they’ve had such a hard time in Tibet I felt they needed my statistical support. I was also not an adventure traveller. For me, adventure travel was flying coach. All this backpacking and wearing of heavy boots and flying off to walk ancient pilgrimage routes was a new experience, and not one that made me feel entirely comfortable.’

Now showing at Palace Cinema, Byron Bay.

Daniel Mookhey walks the line with NSW budget

NSW Treasurer Daniel Mookhey's second budget in nine months, unveiled last week, was a classic Labor document in its support for education and health, somewhat brave in its slugging of property investors, and disingenuous in its blaming of the GST carve-up for the financial woes of NSW going forward.
