Things to do visiting Mollymook Milton Ulladulla, a beautiful bush walk to Florance Head. A relatively easy flat walk of 8.5kms (return) say allow 2hr 45min (return) Enjoy some lovely flora and fauna along the way and some very active bird life for some beautiful photography. The highlight is at the end with majestic views over Pigeon House Mountain and the Budawang Mountains.

We reminisced on this ‘Florance Head’ bush walk of the bygone years when Bobby White would arrange our bush walks that included the Castle, Mount Bushwalker, Yadbora, Shallow Crossing, Ulladulla to Batemans Bay to name a few. He would share his decades of National Parks knowledge explaining and naming the different flora and bird life, he would even take a ‘Billy’ and boil some real bush tea. So on this occasion we took a book with directions and descriptions of the flora and fauna. 

Directions: 8.5kms north of the Milton Post Office, turn left off the highway at Porters Creek Dam. Drive up onto an unsealed road for 10kms, reaching a T section. Turn left and continue for another 2.6kms, where you will  reach a fork lreft to a parking bay. (If you get to the dam, you have gone too far)

CW Stoneking

Gon’ Boogaloo at the Milton Theatre

Following on from his wildly successful national tour and the release of his much-lauded new album Gon’ Boogaloo, CW Stoneking is all set to bring his tunes to the Milton Theatre’ February 6, 2015.
.

Gon’ Booglaoo released on October 17th, 2014, has been praised by critics as –
.

“A masterpiece.” The Saturday Paper

.
“The most joyously primitive album you’ll hear all year, and the most authentic.” Stack Magazine

.
“Guaranteed to have bare feet slapping the bar-room floor” The Age (4 stars)

.
“A raucous party album… a total joy to listen to.” Speaker TV (9/10 stars)

.
Gone are the sepia-toned tales of marooned adventures in the tropics of his last release, the ARIA Award winning Jungle Blues, this time replaced with the latest invention in the world of C.W. Stoneking, electricity! C.W. has stashed his afore-favoured vintage National guitar and banjo combo for a shiny gold Fender and an extra large helping of rock ‘n’ gospel dancehall blues to deliver 12 tracks recorded directly to tape with his full band, his very own hokum wall of sound.
.

Don’t miss your chance to catch this enigmatic and charismatic performer live!
CW Stoneking at the Milton Theatre – Fri Feb 6.  Tickets $40

Mellick’s Chambers, Milton NSW

.

‘Mellick’s Chambers’ located on the corner of Princes Highway and Wason Street in Milton extended along Wason Street northward from the Highway through to Thomas Street and was generally associated with the life of Cec Mellick a notable Milton businessman who operated shops and a furniture business from the site from 1954 until the 1990’s and had his residence adjoining, called ‘Mellickville’.    

.

Its present transformation is the new Chambers Shopping Centre 2013 – 2014, however prior to Cec Mellick earlier buildings on the property had served as the former Milton Council Chambers and also Maddens guest house.

.

It is understood that buildings on the land including the Council Chambers had been erected by a William Wheatley between 1874 and 1877 then on-sold to a Thomas Patterson who served as an alderman on Council during 1895 to 1896. When Thomas Patterson died at Milton on the 1st October 1919, the property which included the Council Chambers was subsequently sold to Herbert James Poole Hall and Esther Hall on the 20th December 1920.

.

At a Council meeting held on the 8th January 1924 it was moved that the lease with Mr Hall for the building at present in use (in Wason Street) be renewed for a term of two years at a rental not exceeding 10/- per week prior to council building a new council chambers.

.

Later the property was purchased by Mary Christina Mellick on 16th March 1945 and the old Council Chambers located to the rear of the property became enclosed by Mellick’s Buildings that included a workshop housing precision woodworking equipment for making furniture.
