As promised, I have chosen a winner of the Gippsland Giveaway Competition. First of all, many many thanks to all those who entered the competition - I've been delighted and amused to read your entries - some were serious, some were funny, some were whimsical. I wish now that I had runners-up prizes to award too; there are several I wish I could reward.
The winner of a night's accommodation in a cabin at the Outpost Retreat in Noojee is... Emily Gale, for her evocative haiku (see here) which managed (in just the classical seventeen syllables) to refer to the majestic Ninety Mile Beach and the allure of the wild Mako shark. Congratulations, Emily! Please email me so that I can arrange for your prize to be awarded to you.
