We were delighted that this lovely 14 year old boy from Spain played our piano at Emu Ridge. We often have customers showing off their skills, and we think he’s pretty talented!
Love this pic of Lorry Ldr from Groovy Grape Tours, we have experienced extreme weather conditions here and we have had the longest disruption to ferry services in history. So a few visitors were trapped on KI and a few locals trapped on the mainland. That’s what we get for living on a beautiful island sometimes! Its all good now!
Jaqui from WA sent us this link. We look forward to hearing more about Emu Oil research and it’s benefits. How amazing if it could be a threat to cancer. We already know how amazing Emu Oil is our testimonials and online orders tell us so.

Boss’s take a break! We, Larry and I are having a break from work, visiting our new grandson and our family in Darwin. Little Jacob makes grandchild number 5. He is very cute. We know our staff will do a wonderful job while we are away. It’s nice to escape the cold and be somewhere warm that’s for sure!
