  • © All Rights Reserved - Black Diamond Images The couple seen here in this image are from Wales, UK and the USA. They stayed with us from the 25th November till the 6th December 2019 under the banner of an organization known as Help Exchange. Under Help X guidelines travellers can request to stay in our home in return for 3-5 hours of work per day. We provide a bed and 3 meals a day and we also show them around the local area. Over the last few years we have really enjoyed meeting usually very well educated young people who travel Australia using Help X. The couple in this image are Megan, a Biologist and Gwyn, studying computer Science. The work they did during their time with us was been very much appreciated. That work involved constructing a complex irrigation system to services our large plant nursery using greywater. In this time of level 4 water restrictions the system will keep plants alive when no other water is available. They also set up a 1000 litre water tank as the core of the system which doubles as a water source in the event of bushfire. The irrigation job took at least 4 days to complete, although Megan and Gwynn did many other jobs during their time with us including hand watering plants with greywater, felling dead Bangalow Palms, clearing gutters of leaves and removing dry leaves from firebreak tracks. They also removed a massive Parsonsia straminea vine from our tractor shed roof, no easy task. We took two trailer loads of green waste which included the vine and about 20 bangalow palm trunks and frons to the tip during a period when council had waived the fee on green waste following the Hillville and Darawank fires. Unfortunately we had a trip to Melbourne planned from the 6th November so it was necessary for them to move on to friends at Pacific Palms, after which they were to head to Sydney area for Xmas.

  • Newly launched tug Henry Miles on Wallis lake, Forster. Launch Our Ivy in foreground The Henry Miles was built at Forster by Henry Miles with assistance in design by Malcolm Miles; she was launched on 28th December 1939. Originally operated as a tug she was later converted into a fishing vessel and sank in the Gulf of Carpentaria on 27th November 1982. Details Name: Henry Miles Official Number: 172903 Length: 80.9 ft Breadth: 20.8 ft Depth: 6.4 ft Register Tonnage: Gross 120.41 Net 36.41 (1 shipping ton = 100 cu. ft.) Engines: Steam 20nhp C.2Cy.11" &22"-16" Bow, McLachlan, made '27 (coal powered) Construction: Framework is of ti-tree, ironbark and box, the planking of blackbutt, the oregon decking being the only imported timber. Owners 1940 – 1946 Henry Miles and Sons 1946 – 1967 Henry Miles jnr. and Malcolm Miles 1967 – 1974 S.G. White Pty Ltd (Ballina) 1974 – 1978 W. F. James &Co 1978 – 1982 Colless Trawlers Pty Ltd (Norm Colless) Launch – 28th December 1939 “It is estimated that there were about 7000 people at Forster, including local residents, over the holidays. Messrs. Henry Miles and Sons had just completed the building of the hull of a new tugboat, intended for the service of the Manning River bar, said to be one of the worst on the North Coast, at which nothing but a sturdy vessel is required. The new boat is to take the place of the tug John Gollan, built by the late Captain Hector Gollan over 50 years ago, and which last year was broken up by the firm of Henry Miles and Sons. Thursday, December 28, was believed to be the date of the highest tide of the year, 5ft. 10in. at Fort Denison, and this was selected by the building firm for the launching.” Dungog Chronicle : Durham and Gloucester Advertiser ) Tuesday 9 January 1940 “The 'Henry Miles'' was designed by Mr. Henry Miles, sen., assisted by Mr. M. W. Miles. The latter having had experience in Scotland and Denmark, embodied the latest in the displacement of the machinery. The keel was laid two years ago, but, through several delays when the workmen were required on other jobs, the completion took longer than was anticipated. The whole structure is of timbers obtained from the Manning and Cape Hawke districts — the framework is of ti-tree, ironbark and box, the planking of blackbutt, the oregon decking being the only imported timber. The forward deck, being raised, differs from its predecessor and is designed to increase the seaworthiness, of the ship. The dimensions of the boat are:— Length: 81ft., beam 20ft., depth 7½ft. By a strange coincidence, the last boat built by Mr. Miles was the 'Forster', which was launched in December, 1914 — just four months after the outbreak of the Great War. The Henry Miles will be docked in a fortnight's time, when the timber will have 'taken up' in the water, and will be coppered before being towed by the tug Kiola to Sydney for the installation of the engines.” The Northern Champion (Taree, NSW) - Saturday 6 January 1940 Fitout with Boiler and Machinery “In January 1940 the ‘Henry Miles’ was towed to James Smith’s Engineering Yard, Darling Street Wharf, Sydney, for fitting out with boiler and machinery. She was fitted with the boiler and machinery recovered from the ‘Repton, (wrecked at Urunga in 1933) and stored in the yard of H & P Stacey, Sydney”. (Wright (1988). Henry Miles replaces Alexandra at Yamba She arrived back in Forster on 28th May 1940/05/28 arrived at Forster, and was used locally to sound bar, etc. “In view of its age and condition, the Maritime Services Board tug, ‘Alexandra’, stationed at the Clarence River entrance, will be placed out of commission at the end of September, 1940. Tenders have been invited by the board for the purchase of the ‘Alexandra’. Satisfactory arrangements have been made for a tug recently constructed, and owned by Henry Miles and Sons to be stationed at Yamba as from October 1, 1940. This vessel will be subsidised by the Maritime Services Board under arrangements similar to those which have been in operation for a number of years at other North Coast ports, viz., the Tweed River, Manning River and Cape Hawke Harbour.” Northern Star (Lismore) Wednesday 11 September 1940 She departed Forster for the Clarence River on 23rd September 1940. War Years In September 1942 the Shipping Control Board enquired whether vessel might be available to be requisitioned for US Army. On 29th January 1943/01/29 she departed Yamba towing the hulk of tug Alexandra from Yamba to Sydney for US Army. In September 1943 she was modified to accommodate 8 men and fitted with an Aldis lamp. In August 1944, Henry Miles senior (builder of the Henry Miles) died. In October 1944 she was made available to the Council for Scientific & Industrial Research to carry out surveys along the coast. Ownership was transferred to Malcolm Miles and Henry Miles junior in 1946. Sold and Converted to Fishing Vessel In 1967 the Henry Miles was sold to S G. White Pty Ltd in Ballina. In 1969 she was converted to a motor fishing vessel by Ballina Slipway & Engineering Co. (S.G. White). An 8 Cylinder. GM diesel engine, made 1944, was installed. She was sent to the Gulf of Carpentaria for 3 seasons; subsequently fishing off the NSW and Victorian coast until sold. In 1975 she was sold to W F James and Co. but remained laid up at Ballina. 1978 Sold to Colless Trawlers Pty Ltd (Norm Colless) This was to be a turning point for the derelict Henry Miles sitting on S G White’s slip. By buying the vessel Norm Colless was able to employ his four sons on refitting the Henry Miles. The engine was replaced with a new Caterpillar D343 engine Refrigeration and hydraulic winches were installed. Finally she was slipped and painted and she looked fantastic, back to her immaculate self. Operation in the Gulf The Henry Miles was sailed to Groote Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria. The skipper was Norm’s oldest son, Vivian Colless. His other three sons and another hand were the crew. On arrival at Karumba, Vivian Colless negotiated to supply prawns to the local processing factory owned by George Raftis. After a few years Norm and his wife I took on the Henry Miles with two of his sons and one of his wife's sons and they worked together until she was lost. November 1982 - Last Days of the Henry Miles The Henry Miles left Vanderlin Island in November 1982 bound for Karumba. On the 27th November 1982, off Little Bountiful, Norm was awoken by his wife who said she could smell smoke. Norm rushed to the engine room to find there was a bad fire on the top part of the engine room. The main engine and auxiliary engines were shut down and the doors sealed the doors and vents to the engine room. The CO2 system was engaged. The timber on the vessel was old and the timbers were smoldering – all efforts to quell the fire proved fruitless. All five on board were able to climb into the dinghy and were picked up.

  • This young plant has been grown from a cutting. The original plant was a cutting planted in my garden in Forster NSW in December 2013. This cutting was taken in 2015 and in December 2019 is over 2 m tall and growing vigorously. The profusion of flower buds indicates a massive flowering later in the season. SGAP report that it is a small tree, often multi-trunked, usually to 5m but occasionally to 12m. It is only known as an isolated population near the summit of Mt. Stuart, Townsville. John Elliott discovered the plant in 2010 and went through the complicated process of having it identified. It was formally described and given its botanical name Backhousia tetraptera by Dr Betsy Jackes. Reference: Mark G. Harrington, Betsy R. Jackes, Matthew D. Barrett, Lyn A. Craven and Russell L.

  • Copyright - All Rights Reserved - Black Diamond Images On 26th October 2019 a fire that had been burning west of the Wallamba River at Minimbah, just west of Tuncurry, fanned by strong north westerly winds, send showers of embers across the river to ignite drought impacted Cabbage Palm forest on the Tuncurry side of the river. The situation quickly became critical as RFS crews battled the rapidly advancing fire which began to threaten homes in Taree and South Streets and all along the back of Tuncurry. One residence that was soon under threat was the historic 1878 built John Wright House. In 1982 John Wright House, the former home of Tuncurry founder, John Wright, was sold to Susan and Brendon Gogarty. Susan was a great great grand-daughter of John Wright and the couple moved the house from the Tuncurry foreshore onto Wright land at the end of South Street Tuncurry, re-erecting it among magnificent Livistona australis and Eucalyptus grandis trees. The idyllic setting soon revealed itself to be a massive fire risk and several major fires came close over the years. When the Bourke Family purchased the home circa 2012 they made certain sufficient firefighting gear was onsite and it was this capability which saved John Wright House from burning down on the evening of 26th October 2019. The availability of bore water proved the biggest help in keeping the flames at bay, although a shed did burn down on the property. John Wright House is set about 20 metres off to the the right of the trees in this image and is intentionally not shown in this photo as it is a private home. This image was taken a week after the fire as the Tuncurry and Minimbah fires continued to flare and produce copious amounts of smoke for many days after. The heavy shrouds of smoke on this day made a very large full moon look impressive red on the horizon.
