Join in the conversation at PICAL!
Come and meet the PICAL team and have your say!
We are keen to hear your views on what you would like to see happen at
our community centre and also tell you about an exciting new concept
that is in the planning stages.
We want your input as to whether it would be viable to open up
a Phillip Island Harvest store where local growers could showcase
their own produce that you could buy.
Fresh produce from PICAL’s Community Garden will be on sale, and our
team of volunteers will set up a plant stall as well as be serving freshly
baked muffins and soup.

the most recent success of former Newhaven
College student Olivia Halley and Pepita
Emmerichs, who are going from strength
to strength in their musical careers, as the
members of what has become the highly ac-
claimed ‘Oh Pep’ duo.
The girls’ debut album ‘Stadium Cake’
was released to high praise from the critics
earlier this year, and is out through Barely
Dressed Records/Remote Control.
Rolling Stone magazine described it as:
“faultless folk rock” with Beat Magazine writ-
ing: “Oh Pep has constructed a killer release,
between their refines harmonies and down
home sound, the duo has outdone them-
In September Oh Pep had a stand out week
at Bigsound in Brisbane, and played to a
sold out Howler in Melbourne before head-
ing back overseas.
Having just finished a 20-date run with
The Mountain Goats across the mid-west of
America (collecting countless fans along the
way), they are about to head in to a run of
headline shows across Europe – and are due
to sell out their shows in London, Berlin and
In the last 12 months, Oh Pep! performed
at Nashville’s Americana Music Festival, Pri-
mavera, The Great Escape, and for Seattle’s
KEXP and NPR’s Tiny Desk.
They have toured extensively in Europe
and America with The Mountain Goats, Ba-
sia Bulat, Lord Huron, Nathaniel Rateliff and
the Nightsweats, and Lake Street Dive.
Oh Pep! will continue to perform when re-
turning back home to Australia next month.
Tour dates in Australia are the Woodford
Folk Festival December 27-29 in Queensland,
NYE on the Hill (Victoria) Friday, December

The film invites the audience to walk in the
shoes of a Sudanese refugee as she strives
for a peaceful life in rural Wagga Wagga. Con-
stance says of her journey: “In Africa I was
fighting for survival; in the refugee camp I
was fighting for human rights, and here in
Australia, I ’m fighting for belonging. ”
It is a funny and uplifting story of the ups
