1902 sos solar dropinSouthern Otways Sustainable Solar Energy Community Drop-in
@ Apollo Bay Senior Citizens Centre, 4 Whelan St, Apollo Bay

Have you ever wondered…

Is it true that I can reduce my power bills if I install solar panels?

Batteries, are they worth the cost?

Can I take part in the community bulk buy scheme?

Am I eligible for the $2,225 Vic Government solar rebate?

…then Drop-in

Whether you are a resident, holiday home owner, business person or member of a local community group, this is a fantastic opportunity as the Federal and State Governments are offering great subsidies and financing for you to make the move to renewable energy!

If you have a solar array installed (either here, elsewhere, on-grid, off-grid, now or in the past) it would be great if you could join us at the event to share your experiences with others. We have a table set aside for folks who would like a personal view on what installing solar means (rather than a technical overview or a sales pitch). Any support which you are able to provide between 2-4 would be greatly appreciated even if it's only for a short time.

facebookfindusWe will also have an info table on the Apollo Bay foreshore on Sat 26 Jan from 9:00 - 12:00. 

Always looking for folks to help setup and manage these events on the day.

Apollo Bay Discussion Group @ the SS Casino Room, Apollo Bay Hotel
Guest Speaker: Andrew Connor, Lecturer in Ancient History, Monash University
Topic: “Looking for the ‘Real’ Kleopatra: Queen, Enemy of Rome and Legend”

1902 dg kleopatraKleopatra VII, the last ruler of the mighty Ptolemaic Empire, is one of the most instantly recognisable figures from antiquity. Her deeds or legends, legacy and identity are debated around the world. The image that predominates is of a beautiful, extravagant seductress, often clad—if clothed—in very little at all, and played by Elizabeth Taylor (or Vivien Leigh).

But what did ancient historians and archaeologists know about the “real” Kleopatra? Building on surviving literature, everyday texts preserved on papyrus, sculpture, coinage, and more, we will view Kleopatra as ruler of a vast, still-powerful monarchy and associated bureaucracy, as a powerful woman in a time of nearly unbridled patriarchy, as a survivor in a real-life “game of thrones,” and as a target of vicious Roman propaganda blaming her for the outbreak of war between Augustus and Marc Antony. How was she remembered by a Roman culture that hated and was captivated by her, and by later works - mediaeval Islamic scholars, Renaissance painters, and modern filmmakers? In short: once we strip away the layers of confusion, misogyny, and legend, who really was Kleopatra?

Andrew Connor is the Lecturer in Ancient History in the Centre for Ancient Cultures at Monash University. His work focuses on the temples of Roman Egypt - their economic infrastructure, relationship with the Roman state, and eventual collapse in the 3rd century CE. He completed his PhD in Ancient History in the Department of Classics at the University of Cincinnati, and taught at the Cincinnati and Xavier University before heading to Australia. He currently teaches Roman, Classical Greek, and Hellenistic history and archaeology, along with Greek and Latin language, at the 1st year through Honours levels. He publishes editions of documentary texts preserved on papyri on topics from the Ptolemaic, Roman, and Byzantine periods in Egypt. He lives in Elwood, and in his free time is a member of the Port Melbourne Football Club.

The meeting opens at 6.30pm to allow you to place your food order and be seated for Andrew to commence at 7pm. The Hotel offers a fixed price menu of $20 but you may order from the regular menu. Pink bowls are on each table for donations. Donations are optional but all received are distributed back into the local community.

This event is open to everybody.  If you would like to attend, please contact Margaret Murphy by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone (03) 5237 6640.

Apollo Bay Discussion Group @ the SS Casino Room, Apollo Bay Hotel
Guest Speaker: Ray Nichols
Topic: “Preparing the Noose: Trump’s Troubles & the Democrats’ Resurgence”

So much of moment is happening in America’s politics that we must try to make sense of it, and we must do so by understanding the peculiar nature of the Presidency, the Congress, and the parties.

First – a President has enormous power, and it is hard to put his neck in a noose, but it is not impossible; Trump is under enormous and increasing pressure, with several investigations probing his relations with Russia and his American financial dealings, and threatening both ordinary legal action and the extraordinary process of “impeachment”.

Second – the Democrats’ electoral victory in the House of Representatives last November not only strengthened investigation of Trump, but now can be seen as epochal: a rare, deep change in demography and ideology.

Third – this change is reflected in the remarkable variety of Democrats who already are competing for the party’s choice of a presidential candidate to confront Trump in the 2020 election.

Overall, Trump’s contempt for fundamental norms of democracy has stirred people to defend those norms more vehemently than has been true for decades. This is a striking example of the ironies of political history.

Ray Nichols was a Wilson and Danforth Scholar at Princeton, and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford. He taught at the University of California before moving to Monash University, where he was Professor and Head of the Department of Politics. He has written extensively on political ideas and action, has broadcast regularly on the ABC and Radio Singapore, and has led several community action groups.

The meeting opens at 6.30pm to allow you to place your food order and be seated for Ray to commence at 7pm. The Hotel offers a fixed price menu of $20 but you may order from the regular menu. Pink bowls are on each table for donations. Donations are optional but all received are distributed back into the local community.

Moth Magic @ Sheoak Picnic Area, Garvey Road, Great Otway National Park (Lorne)

A free public event run by Museums Victoria (Melbourne Museum) in partnership with Parks Victoria.

The Otways’ moth fauna is truly diverse, with over 1000 species recorded from the region. From the first thorough survey, conducted by George Lyell in 1907 and 1908, to recent surveys carried out as part of Museum Victoria’s 2018/19 Otways Bioscan, the beauty and variety of this group of Lepidoptera never ceases to amaze. 

As part of the Bioscan partnership between Museums Victoria (Melbourne Museum) and Parks Victoria, we would like to invite you to attend a very special night-time event: Moth Magic.

Come and visit the moth-sheet and see first-hand some of the spectacular and bizarre moths that live in the Great Otway National Park. 

Gain insight into how surveys are conducted and hear about our teams’ moth-spotting travels and their work at the museum. 

Find out how the work of our dedicated volunteers has led to exciting new discoveries and scientific developments.

Please join us for a night of moth-spotting at Sheoak Picnic Area, Garvey Road, Great Otway National Park.

When: Saturday March 23rd, 2018; any time between 6.30 pm and 10.30 pm.

What to bring: A torch, camera, comfortable shoes, warm clothes, a hat or cap and sunscreen. 

Please note: In order to attract moths to the sheet, we use a mercury-vapour light. While this light is safe and has built-in UV filters, some UV is still emitted and thus we recommend that participants wear a hat or cap and sunscreen, in order to protect their eyes and face from the bright light.

1904 dg fungi1Guest Speaker: Alison Pouliot
Topic: The Allure of Fungi

Although fungi underpin the resilience of terrestrial ecosystems, they have been overlooked in Australian biodiversity conservation. With the guidance of ecologist, Alison Pouliot, local Otways communities have been exploring and documenting fungi for over a decade and as a result, fungi are now included in local conservation.

In ‘The Allure of Fungi’, Alison explores the possibility for fungi to be recognised as vital to functioning ecosystems and offers the opportunity to think differently not just about fungi, but the natural world more broadly. This illustrated and interactive seminar explores the significance of fungi through a range of voices from naturalists to philosophers and members of the local community.

The meeting opens at 6.30pm to allow you to place your food order and be seated for Alison to commence at 7pm. The Hotel offers a fixed price menu of $20 but you may order from the regular menu. Pink bowls are on each table for donations. Donations are optional but all received are distributed back into the local community.

This event is open to everybody.  If you would like to attend, please contact Margaret Murphy by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone (03) 5237 6640.

This is my favorite time of year for photography. It's so much Fun-guys (sorry!) but Fungi are amazing to photograph. For me in the abstract, even though I know so little about them. That's why I put my hand up to help SOLN (SouthernOtway Landcare) host Allison Pouliot's Fungi Photography workshop on Easter Monday, 22 April. I'd rather find an amazing Fungi than a hidden Easter egg, even a really big one.

Guest Speaker: Laurence Wade
Topic: ‘The Overwhelming Case for Nuclear Power'

1905 dg nuclearOur Speaker presents the case for why nuclear energy is safe, reliable, clean and cheap and the only way to solve climate change and end poverty.

‘Expanding nuclear power is the fastest way to slash greenhouse gas emissions, decarbonize the economy, end poverty and save millions of lives lost every year from the use of fossil fuels. Increasing the use of renewables won’t begin to meet the world’s fast-growing electricity needs. Nuclear power is the only solution – and is also the best solution. Laurence will make the case for and address the concerns about nuclear power, discuss emerging nuclear technologies, and detail Australia’s role in the world nuclear industry.’

Laurence Wade is an advisor to the European Union and NATO on how best to deal with the economic and military rise of China. He is a former President of the Australian Institute of International Affairs, a Member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a visiting fellow at Chatham House, and a board member of the UK-based The Freedom Association. He runs a private equity company, GSA Ventures. He has had a longstanding interest in energy markets and nuclear power.

The meeting opens at 6.30pm to allow you to place your food order and be seated for Laurence to commence at 7pm. The Hotel offers a fixed price menu of $20 but you may order from the regular menu. Pink bowls are on each table for donations. Donations are optional but all received are distributed back into the local community.
