Weekend Australia Story - The Trail Blazers

"From 'two feet in the grave' to boom town in just six years"... That's the little town of Derby!

Published in the Weekend Australian recently, we never tire of reading about the resurgence of Derby.

Greg, as usual, the way you have crafted this story is just incredible and it was an absolutely pleasure to host you again, this time for our 4-day Experience.

Read the full story online here.

After we towel off, a picnic meal prepared by chef Tom Dicker is laid out on those famous firey granite rocks – local oysters, freshly caught ­octopus cooked with chorizo and spuds, scallops in lemon and dill butter, all washed down with local Pirie sparkling wine and pale ale from Little Rivers Brewing Co. If I was to tally up the best days of my life, this one would make the finals.
