Toonumbar National Park

The Toonumbar National Park is a protected national park located in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia. The 14,910-hectare park is situated 620 kilometres north of Sydney, near the town of Woodenbong; the park is part of the Focal Peak Group World Heritage Site Gondwana Rainforests of Australia inscribed in 1986 and added to the Australian National Heritage List in 2007. The park features subtropical rainforests protecting threatened plants and animals, such as the sooty owl, red-legged pademelon and yellow-bellied glider; the rainforests on Dome Mountain and the Murray Scrub are part of the World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia. The rugged landscape of Mount Lindesay, Dome Mountain and Edinburgh Castle have provided the inspiration for many local Aboriginal legends; the Murray Scrub and the Dome Mountain Forest contain significant areas of subtropical and temperate rainforest and are listed as part of the World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.

There are drier and cooler places in the park and this has resulted in incredible diversity of flora, from eucalypt woodlands and tall gum forests, to forests of bangalow palms. Animals in the park include marbled frogmouth, Albert lyrebird and rainforest reptiles and frogs; the rainforest area is an important refuge for a number of fruit-eating pigeons and insectivorous bats. Pademelons live there. Focal Peak Volcano situated in Mt Barney National Park was active 23 million years ago and was responsible for the eroded volcanic remains of Mount Lindesay, Dome Mountain and Edinburgh Castle that dominate the landscape today; the high rainfall combined with fertile soil have created lush rainforests. On average, the park receives 1,035.8 millimetres of rain each year. Its highest recorded rainfall was 449.4 millimetres in one day. Toonumbar National Park was part of the successful Githabul Nation native title claim; the Native title claimant Trevor Close an Aboriginal lawyer fought the NSW Government fifteen years probono to win the historic Native Title claim in memory of his grandfather Rory Close and his children Nea Close, Marnie Close Sera Close, Issiah Close and Tomika Close, Yartha Close and Kory Close.

Trevor Close Githabul Tribal name is Mudargun. Inside Toonumbar National Park there are a number of jurabihls which were recorded with the assistance of the late Auntie Millie Boyd in 1974 by Howard Creamer; these types of sites are of National significance due to their rarity in Australia and the rest of the world. Dome Mountain is the Githabul sacred site for the rain ceremony. Edinburgh Castle is the Goanna site and owned by the Clara Williams descendants who reside at the Aboriginal Reservation Muli Muli, 10 km west of the town of Woodenbong.

Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie is a 2018 biographical comedy-drama film directed by Jon S. Baird and written by Jeff Pope. Based on the years of the lives of the comedy double act Laurel and Hardy, the film stars Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, it premiered on 21 October 2018 at the closing night gala of the BFI London Film Festival. The film was released in the United States on 28 December 2018 and in the United Kingdom on 11 January 2019; the film focuses on details of the comedy duo's personal relationship while relating how they embarked on a grueling music hall tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland during 1953 and struggled to get another film made. At the 76th Golden Globe Awards, Reilly was nominated for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, at the 72nd British Academy Film Awards the film earned three nominations, including Best British Film and Best Actor in a Leading Role for Coogan. In 1937, while making Way Out West, Stan Laurel refuses to renew his contract with Hal Roach, because Stan believes the studio and Roach himself are failing to financially recognize the global fame the pair enjoyed at that time.

Oliver Hardy remains tied to Roach on a different contract and isn't let go, with the studio attempting to pair him up with Harry Langdon in the film Zenobia, while Laurel and Hardy would soon get back together, Ollie's absence during a meeting with Fox results in them not being signed on by the studio, leaving Stan feeling betrayed and bitter for years. In 1953, the comedy duo embark on a grueling music hall tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland while struggling to get another film made: a comedic adaptation of Robin Hood. Poor publicity in Britain managed by the producer Bernard Delfont means the tour begins in empty back street theaters with Delfont seeming more interested in his up-and-coming star Norman Wisdom. Belatedly, Delfont organises some public appearances and word of their visit to Britain spreads, resulting in them filling much larger prestigious venues. During the tour the pair, driven by Stan, continues to develop gags for the film. There is an ominous silence from its London-based producer.

Once the tour arrives in London, Stan pays a visit to the film's producer and discovers there is insufficient funding and the project has been cancelled. He can't bring himself to tell Ollie and their script development continues, they are soon joined by their respective wives and Lucille, at London's Savoy Hotel before they are to perform at a sold out two-week residency at the nearby Lyceum Theatre. After the opening night at the Lyceum, a party is held to honour them. At the party, tensions begin to show between the two wives leading Delfont to remark that he's got two double acts for the price of one; as the night progresses Stan's feelings of Ollie's betrayal come to the surface after his wife brings up the "elephant movie", resulting in the two having a public argument over the movie contract fiasco that split them up. As Stan unloads his pent-up resentment for what he considers to be a betrayal of their friendship and accuses Ollie of being lazy, Ollie unloads his own pent-up feelings towards Stan, claiming that the two weren't friends, only being together because Hal Roach studios had paired them up and that Stan never loved him as a friend but only loved Laurel and Hardy.

As a result of the argument Ollie leaves the party with his wife, who has in the meantime argued with Stan's wife, leaving Stan alone. Despite their friendship having taken a blow, they press on with their public appearances, which include judging a beauty contest in the seaside resort of Worthing. Ollie refuses to speak to Stan despite the latter's attempts. Just when they are about to announce the winner, Ollie collapses from a heart attack and is forced into bed rest. Informed two days that it's unlikely Ollie will get better in time to continue the tour, Delfont suggests having a well-known English comic take Ollie's place; when Stan visits Ollie in his room, Ollie tells Stan that he intends to retire explaining that a doctor warned him that he must never go onstage again because the strain could be fatal. Getting into bed with him to warm Ollie up, Stan asks. Both admit that they did not mean what they had said to each other and share a quiet moment together. On the night of the next show, Stan finds it impossible to work with the English comic Delfont has hired as a substitute due to his not being Ollie, the performance is cancelled, much to Delfont's dismay.

When his wife finds him at the bar, Stan confesses to her that he does love Ollie as a friend and intends to return to America instead of continuing the tour, though he asks her not to let Ollie know he is leaving. Ollie in turn decides he can't spend the rest of his life idle in bed and leaves his hotel room just before his wife comes back; as they pack, Stan's wife hears a knock on the door. The two recognize the real fondness that exists between them, and as they silently forgive each other, Ollie smiles and tells Stan they have a show to do, making his friend smile right back. While sailing to Ireland to continue the tour Stan confesses he has deceived Ollie about the prospects of a film while they continued to work on it. Ollie confesses in turn that he had guessed the truth from Stan's conduct, confusing Stan as he asks why they kept working on the script if Ollie had known the truth for some time, Ollie admitting that working on the script was all they could do. Upon arriving in Ireland, the duo are welcomed by a large crowd of fans, both young and old, the church bel

Mayday (Mark Seymour album)

Mayday is the third album by Mark Seymour and the Undertow, released in May 2015. The album peaked at number 43 on the ARIA Charts. Seymour said he returned to "a old way of writing" and acknowledged a blues influence. "I've been listening to a lot of blues and the way old blues artists reverse and invert chords, but they're always the same chords," he said. "It forces you to twist the melody. It's the illusion of simplicity, but you can create a whole lot of drama." He said. "I invent characters or occupy the space of somebody else and imagine myself in their condition, but there's a lot of me in there."Seymour said "FIFO" was inspired by a 62-year-old worker he met after a gig at a fly-in fly-out mining camp. "He'd been doing it for 17 years. He said,'I'm over it, but the money's too good'." He said his lyric writing had become a lot more about visual detail. "Frankston station is at the end of the line and you get the full cross section of Melbourne there—all classes, every kind of person. It's tough and there's a real rawness to it.

You get clarity about what urban life is like. "Struggle Street" is interesting, the drama around it makes me think people are afraid of confronting the reality of what Australian culture is like. We want to believe that everyone is cashed up and driving four-wheel-drives, Frankston station tells you it's not."
