This blog is about a small farm in the rolling hills of West Gippsland, just under two hours east of Melbourne. Precipice is just outside Icy Creek, about 12 minutes up the Baw Baw road from Noojee.
We grow some strange stuff here, so we’re keen to hear from other people who might have tried their luck with chestnuts, jostaberries, perry trees, and a whole range of cider apple trees.
Precipice is also home to a posse of wombats, bandicoots, wallabies, deer, and lyre birds.
This site is maintained by Lawrie Zion, who also coordinates the Journalism program at La Trobe University in Melbourne, and who wrote the documentary The Sounds of Aus, which tells the story of the Australian accent.
