Today’s important question: Where’s the annual Keka Australia Day lamb ad @meatandlivestockaustralia? You promised you hadn’t given it the chop, but being very sheepish about releasing it. Expect a roasting, grilling and even to be skewered if we don’t see a lamb loving sermon from Keka soon. #wherethebloodyhellareewe
Heavy smoke over Mt Arapiles, a reminder to again take the time to appreciate all the firies working so hard to protect us. Heart breaking to see images from East Gippsland and southern NSW. Devastating harm, not just to homes, structures, animals, land and forests, but also the long term harm to mental health. Time to band around these communities and support each other through this. ❤️🚒💐 Stay safe folks.
If you love #cricket, you have to take a trip to the beautiful community of Harrow in western Victoria and take in the history of the home of Australia’s First XI to tour England in 1868, our awesome all-Aboriginal team. The Johnny Mullagh Discovery Centre has an amazing cricket collection and first class displays featuring stories of the difficult journey of local Aboriginal men to take their skills to Lords. There’s also a great collection of Bradman memorabilia, lots of interaction for kids and it’s free! Manned by volunteers, the centre is a credit to the lovely Harrow community. We have so many interesting gems in our local communities, what a great place to live. 💕
We have everything in the Lowan electorate, even an amazing chocolate factory! Make sure you drop into Glenelg Fine Confectionary next time you’re in Coleraine and sample some of their delicious chocolate delights. The dark chocolate coated almonds are to die for! 😋 And yes Nats colleagues, I have chocolate truffles for you to munch on next sitting week in Parliament - if it lasts that long. 💕🍫
She’s gonna step on you again. 💪🏻#fitmum #fitmp #fitme
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them. Lest We Forget A beautiful sunset service on ANZAC Bridge in Horsham to mark 100 years since Armistice and remember those the bravely fought for our democracy, freedom and peaceful lifestyle we enjoy in Australia today. #Armistice2018 #RemembranceDay #LestWeForget
Today’s beautiful and best smelling country hall award goes to Byaduk! Between the beautiful flowers and the chocolate cake competition, it really is a hall made in heaven. 💐x
What a lovely afternoon for a Mint Hot Chocolate cuddled up beside apricot and blueberry slice under the verandah at The Old Bakery in Dunkeld. Bliss. #dunkeld #grampians #happiness
Happy 75th birthday @grampiansoliveco! Wonderful to join this fabulous local producer to celebrate this amazing milestone by planting 75 olive trees struck from the original 75 year old trees. Great to see such strong support from the local community for this multiple gold medal winning olive oil producer (their olives, vinegars and other produce are amazing too!). Congratulations to the Mathews family and I wish you every success for further growth over the next 75 years. 🌳
Bring it on! The first solid commitment to bring back trains to Horsham and Hamilton, all part of the Liberal Nationals plan to connect Regional communities to support regional jobs and living and ensure country Victoria is not just surviving, but thriving. Plus 45 minutes on a fast train from Ballarat to Melbourne is amazing!

Amazing meal at @baa3400 tonight! Local produce made delicious by our super chefs, complimented by a superb bottle of Shiraz from @grampiansestate.winery. #eatlocal
I have chills, they’re multiplying! Finished the day meeting the electrifying Olivia Newton John! Not just an Aussie icon and star on the worldwide stage, but also an incredible supporter for cancer research and care. Plus she’s still rocking leather pants and an absolute delight. Star struck. 🤩
My shout for @thenationalsvic morning tea in Parliament this morning - delicious @rupanyupliving Chilli Chocolate Chickpea Brownie. So good! Thank you Claire for your awesome creation using our local products @rupanyupliving_brownies. ❤️🍫
So today I happily ended up with two slabs of delicious @rupanyupliving_brownies, because how can you really choose between chilli chocolate or mint chocolate brownies made from local chickpea flour??? 😋 Thanks Claire @rupanyupliving for saving me the bake. May grab a dry mix pack and get my bake on next visit. ❤️🍫 #rupanyuplivingbrownies #amazing
