I have just spent 5 days over the New Year period at Hopewood and it has been a fantastic start to my year. After a very stressful year in 2014 I needed to relax and detox after the Christmas period and Hopewood was just what I needed. The staff were incredibly supportive and helpful and I came away relaxed, energised and 3.5kg lighter. I will be back!!

All set on a picturesque privately owned Family Olive Farm in Luddenham. There is an onsite cafe in the Raceway Visitor Centre and the Function Centre is suitable for larger groups, parties and functions and corporate entertainment.

Modern facilities. Modern karts, not dodgy old ones with inconsistencies across the pack. Clean and grippy circuit, and fantastic to race on with undulations, chicanes, a few fast sections and some tight corners, with plenty of road to overtake on or try a different line. Apparently the track is still open for racing even on rainy days!
Only disappointment was that I was red flagged for driving on the dirt, even though it wasn't my fault for being pushed wide off the track!
A great day out with the boys. We will be back.

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre

Reviewed By Jackie M - Sydney, Australia

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre Youth (CPAC Youth) were tasked with creating an event that “would interest young people, and of course themselves, and represent the diversity of Western Sydney," coordinator Jax Hornjik explains. Her pride in her young team is palpable as she introduces their resulting event, A Place At The Table.
The collaborative process between Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and local youth allows young people to feel involved with their local arts centre while at the same time as gaining valuable skills in performance, marketing and event production. As Jax explains, each month CPAC Youth come up with new work, “and we just go: we'll write the risk assessment for you."
Aimed at young people aged between 12 and 25, A Place at the Table brought together many of the cultures present in the wider Liverpool Council catchment. For a minimal spend of $20, guests were treated to a ten-course degustation celebrating ten different cultures, with the dishes supplied by local businesses. Beginning with fat pockets of crab meat inari from Sushi Hub, Casula and ending with a quartet of desserts from Italy, Uruguay, Poland and Cambodia, the shared meal was created with the assistance of Taste Food Tours.
Each course was accompanied by a short cultural performance designed and performed by CPAC Youth members. None were more poignant than An Le’s My Story; her own narrative of being a first generation Vietnamese-Australian. While guests tucked into chicken spring rolls from VN Noodle House, Liverpool, An told us that "life growing up here in Liverpool was mostly a really positive experience."
As a teenager An rebelled against the Vietnamese language classes her Mother sent her to, but in later years she came to recognise the importance of knowing her cultural heritage. Amidst a flurry of tears, An related a conversation with her Mother where she asked why she wasn’t mad when her daughter rejected her culture. An said her Mother told her she immigrated because she wanted her kids to be happy, and have choices, because “hers were so limited at my age.”
Chilean empanadas, supplied by popular Carramar bakery, Lion D’Or, were a lucky dip of flavours; but guests were able to choose their favourite type of Serbian burek. Opting for meat, I was particularly excited by the airy ripples of flaky pastry in the offerings sourced from Royalty Bakery in Liverpool. (I've even noted down their address at the end of this post, so I can visit it at a future date.)
A short break in proceedings afforded guests the opportunity to wander the grounds of the art centre; experiencing the cacophony of sound generated by the river’s extraordinary bird life, and take in the art.
The large oil and water tanks, remnants from the venue’s time as an electrical substation, are one of the few legal art walls available to street artists in Sydney. You’ll also find pieces like a poured concrete ‘old skool’ boom box if you keep your eyes peeled.
"Zionists invaded our land, which they were promised, but we were not warned," reads Renee. She’s wrapped in a Palestinian keffiyeh and illuminating us on the plight of the Palestinians as we resume our meal, tucking into falafel and hummus from Yum Yum Bakery in Guildford.
We also hear about the struggles of the Khmer in Cambodia while eating coconut jelly from Mrs Op’s Shop in Bonnyrigg. Both Performances neatly put paid to the lie that young people are politically disengaged.
“Leichhardt? Don’t go there for Nonna’s cooking, it’s rubbish,” volunteers the vivacious Amelia Morgano. She’s summoning her Italian Nonna for a cannoli demonstration that co-opts a few audience volunteers. We’re kept from getting too envious with our own vanilla, chocolate and ricotta cannoli from Divine Sweets in Casula; licking our fingers to a bubbling monologue seemingly streamed direct from the lips of her Italian Nonna.
We start to hit maximum sugar overload when trays of Uruguayan cakes from Lion D’Or bakery are circulated, fast on the heels of glazed, plum jam-filled Polish doughnuts from Copernicus Café and Restaurant in Liverpool.
It's hard not to leave impressed about the positive impact this metropolitan arts centre is having on the young people of South West Sydney. By engaging youth in the process of producing art-based events, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre ensures it has a youth-relevant programme while simultaneously equipping the area's young artists and event producers with hands on experience that will flesh out their creative portfolios - a win-win situation!

Really good pub with good prices only bad thing is the bar staff think the music is on for them. They need to look at the age group in there. It's club music switched as high as possible. 3 people asked them to switch it down but they took no notice. Having to shout to have a conversation

A very big centre. But also a very confusing one. First rule Take a photo of where you parked your car. Second rule. Take a photo of where you entered Center from Car park. After you’ve done that then the whole world of shopping is open to you. On the lowest level we found a very good Growers Market. And later a good coffee. Enjoy

Trash and Treasure Grand Bazaar

Reviewed By Jenny R - Sydney, Australia

Can't believe they charge you to come into this market, all the sell is pirated movies, sickly birds and literally the crap out of people's cupboards. The stall sellers are rude and won't part with their goods unless you pay top dollar ! The toilets are putrid and would never eat from any of the food vendors. Cigarette smoke fills the air it is just horrible place. You would think after all the money they have made over the years they could make improvements.

Warwick Farm Racecourse

Experience racing with a hint of a country experience. A welcoming green oasis, temptingly close to the city, Warwick Farm rolls out along the banks of the Georges River. Its leafy tracks, and authentic racing charm make for a unique race day experience. Conveniently close to the Hume Highway and 30km from the CBD, the venue has the style and ambience of its metropolitan neighbours without the crowds and congestion. Keeping it relaxed and real, your trackside experience is heightened by the high standard of racing that benchmarks Warwick Farm. Significant development is on the horizon as Australia’s leading thoroughbred auctioneer, William Inglis & Son Ltd, relocate to Warwick Farm.

I recently spent a hot February day at Warwick Farm Racecourse and as I hadn’t been there since the 1980s, was pleasantly surprised to find that it had lost none of its old authentic Sydney racetrack identity in the ensuring Years.... Large fans sent out sprays of cold mists cooling the punters in the outside betting ring, and great shady gums cast cool shadows out at the old stables where the Race horses awaited their race... The aircon in the members bars was a real respite from the 36 degrees outdoors but the grandstand facing eastwards was refreshing as it was hit by the afternoon breezes... next door is a massive new hotel and sale arena where yearling horses are to be auctioned off at times every year. If you want to go to a Racecourse that’s got the feel of a country track then have a day out at Warwick Farm

Every time we've gone here, theres generally 1 person working.... given its in a busy part of Liverpool, and most people are out and about buying lunch around 12:30, it pays to have more staff on.
The girl behind the counter appeared flustered, but when we finally got our order it was definitely worth the wait!

Lovely staff and well set up, quite a nice little train ride through tunnels and a nice view to match.
If your kids like Thomas and friends its a must.
