Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn, is like the tardis. Now, it has recently come to my attention that not everyone understands that reference, so I’ll elaborate. The tardis is the time machine and spacecraft in Doctor Who. You know, the one that looks like a 1960s style London police box. So, it seems small from the outside, but is much larger with far much more to offer on the inside. Like Glenferrie Road. Whether it is down the laneways, up some stairs, just off the main road, there is a lot going on down here and all of it’s good.

However, the CBD doesn’t have the monopoly on laneway culture. Straddling both sides of the second busiest suburban railway station in Melbourne, Glenferrie laneways have a lot to offer, whether it’s cupcakes, vinyl or a little taste of France. Jo Rittey headed down the lane to have a chat to the people that make the laneways what they are. Read More.....
When people think about health and fitness, the conversation often seems to focus on the “me” rather than the “we”, the physical appearance rather than the happy heart. Over at Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre they have a different view. Run by the YMCA of Victoria, the team at HALC believe that being healthy is about more than just personal fitness. True health comes from building strong bodies, minds, and feelings of connection within the local community. Read more...
