This pic was taken on our farm around the 1930’s. Their were 48 Eucalyptus oil distillery’s that employed over 600 people, and it was one of Kangaroo Island major industries. The Hand sickle was hard work. We use a chainsaw these days but its still very labor intense. This pic was taken when FH Fauldings used to own our farm and Joe Kent was managing it!Eucalyptus oil was Australia’s first true export overseas! We are proud to have saved Australia and Kangaroo Islands history and heritage because 90% of the worlds oil now comes from China and Brazil!
It was great to see Pete out and about, Happy Birthday, we hope he enjoyed his birthday lunch out at Emu Ridge, was good to have a catch up.
Another great idea for the use of Emu Ridge oils. When you get out a new roll of toilet paper place a few drops of oil in the cardboard roll. This will release a fresh smell every time the paper is used.
Another family taking advantage of the kids travel free. This family is enjoying our video and there FREE Adventure Packs. Hope you had fun, with Nancy Tirri at Emu Ridge.

Yum, just had one of these for dessert. KANGAROO ISLAND HONEY & PISTACHIO Ice creams! Available at all Peters Ice cream outlets YUM
The breathtaking wilderness of Kangaroo Island provides the perfect sanctuary for bees to produce quality honey. We combine this honey with rich pistachio flavored ice cream, then coat it in premium milk chocolate infused with delicate pistachio pieces. It’s an unforgettably blissful indulgence.
