A newsletter for people interested in the Australian Alps
The Alps have grown…
What has a Minister of the Crown and a Tharwa meat pie have in common?
Not much, but in some ways the inclusion of Mount Buffalo National park into the Alps Memorandum of Understanding owes much to a chance meeting and a meat pie for lunch!
Some three months ago the Hon Marie Tehan, Minister for Conservation and Land Management (Victoria) was visiting the ACT and inspecting the northern section of the Australian Alps national parks.
While driving through the quaint village of Tharwa on the outskirts of Canberra, protocol demanded the procurement of one of the best pies in Tharwa (in fact the only pies available in Tharwa) for a Ministerial lunch!
