The art house: Stewart and Gwen Wallis show us Cockatoo Hill, a large modern house outside Berrima with incredible views and an extraordinary art collection.

A rustic restoration: Three years ago Berrima residents Michael Verberkt and Stewart Bunn realised they had a neglected treasure on their land, a little circa 1850 slab cottage.

Fashion, fast cars and the power of print: Yorkshire-born artist Alan Walsh spent much of his childhood at Formula One events, fascinated by the glamour of the track. Today, his passion feeds his vibrant retro prints.

Autumn makes an entrance: The Highlands is known for its spectacular autumns, and last year we found some beautiful driveways to photograph.

Land of opportunity: In 1996, salt company managing director Charles Olsson bought 138 hectares that had been home to the region’s former abattoir. Today, the property has been turned around.

A garden to live in: The owner of Carisbrooke, in Bowral, explains how she and her husband created a low maintenance garden on a two-acre town block.

Holden on to history: Holdens were part of daily life for Australian families for decades, and today many are treasured as classic cars. We feature five, including one in our Classic Car column.

Photographic memories: Bowral couple Bob and Irene Goard tell how they acquired one of the most significant collections of vintage cameras and photographic equipment in the country.

View to a viaduct: The railway line between Picton and Goulburn passes over four historic viaducts. All were built to keep trains out of river beds but they also have considerable architectural beauty.
