Phillip Island is fortunate to have a strong
community of talented volunteers who are gen-
erous with their time and skills.
The volunteer cooks and kitchen staff worked
together to provide a meal of three roast meats,
scalloped potatoes and salads purchased from
Kristos the day before, with plum pudding or
fruit salad for dessert; served to the guests with
a warm and friendly smile.
Three of the volunteers helped in 2015 which

Aussie legend at
AUSSIE legend Russell Morris will be on stage
at the Westernport Hotel at San Remo on Satur-
day, January 21.
Shooting to fame in the middle 60s with
Somebody’s Image, Russell had a string of hits
including Hush and the Bob Dylan classic Baby
In 1969 he and producer Molly Meldrum re-
leased ‘The Real Thing’, a song that is played
regularly on commercial radio to this day.
Breakthrough hits such as Sweet Sweet Love,
Wings of an Eagle, Rachel, Part 3 into Paper
Walls, The Girl That I Love and many, many
more kept coming.
Constantly in demand, Russell stills tours na-
tionally throughout the year and appears inter-
nationally as well.
He has worked alongside industry heavy-
weights like Cher, The Bee Gees, Linda Ron-
stadt, The Beach Boys and toured Australia
with the hugely successful ‘Long Way To The
Top’ in 2012.
That same year he released the Sharkmouth
album, a collection of tunes written about Aus-
tralian historical characters.
‘Sharkmouth’ is the first of a trilogy of albums
re-telling some amazing stories in Australia’s
distant past, some famous, some not so famous,
creating a historical document using blues and
rock to celebrate the yarns that modern Austra-
lia was built on.
The back of Van Diemen’s Land picks up
where Sharkmouth left off, this time covering
great Australian characters and stories includ-
ing Breaker Morant, Sandakan, the Eureka
Stockade and many more.
Morris is joined on Van Diemen’s Land by a
host of special guest artists including Joe Ca-
milleri, Rick Springfield, Rob Hirst (Midnight
Oil), Scott Owen (The Living End), Ross Han-
naford (Daddy Cool), Vika & Linda Bull, Phil
Manning (Chain) and Joe Robinson.
“I spent over a year researching these great
Australian stories,” said Morris.
“To me these albums are about looking back
at the characters that deserve to be remembered
and then doing that in the best way I know how
- through song.
“It’s about leaving a legacy, that in 50 years’
time, someone can put these records on and
learn something about the spirit of our great
country, in the same way we do when we read
The Man From Snowy River.”
In 2015 Russell released the third album in
his Blues Trilogy Red Dirt – Red Heart debuting
at six on the national Aria Charts and still going
Red Dirt - Red Heart tells a story of the Aus-
“Any history of Australia albeit very brief, must
include the people who have inhabited this won-
derful country for at least 40,000 years.”
This album goes on to tell the stories of two
bushrangers, another about a beautiful town,
a song about a loner, a recluse, and an escape
artist, a snake and the spectacular Nullarbor
