Willagee Alive commenced in 2003 and is an initiative of Willagee residents. It aims to identify and build upon strengths and assets within Willagee, to build community pride and participation and to make Willagee a great place to live.
Willagee Alive meet monthly to discuss projects, ideas and opportunities within the community. They meet at the Willagee Community Centre on the second Wednesday of each month.
To counteract past negative influences I will post some wonderful things about Willagee.
Grass trees in the park, Lucas Street.
Xanthorrhoea , or balga, is important to the Aboriginal people. The flowering spike makes the perfect fishing spear. It is also soaked in water and the nectar from the flowers gives a sweet tasting drink. In the bush the flowers are used as a compass. This is because flowers on the warmer, sunnier side of the spike (north facing side) often open before the flowers on the cooler side facing away from the sun.
How about Gnomesville?
Gnomesville is the magical home to over 3000 Gnomes who have migrated there from all over Australia and around the world. Spend a few hours wandering through the villages and glades full of playful, naughty and sentimental gnomes climbing logs, hanging out in trees, playing cricket, even flying planes! Enjoy the clever Gnomish puns and who knows, you may decide to return to contribute a Gnome of your own. Don’t be tempted to take home a souvenir, however, as Gnoman legend has it that bad luck will surely follow! Located at Wellington Mill, Ferguson Valley.
This is a fantastic innovation, which lets me avoid the email inbox.

Most days I walk past a comic shop or two on my way to work, and love to guess who is buying what comics. I love the slightly seedy grunginess of the stores, and the fact that there is usually a staircase to ascend, or descend. I am fascinated by the locations themselves, tucked away. The locations are a kind of clue to a very specific customer base. I love this green entrance way.
There are some enticing places to visit up at the west end of town.
I love the combination of text and visual poetry.
There is also something a little homespun about these stores, which is at odds with their super galactic stock.
