    Make a Weekend of Mothers Day

    Make a Weekend of Mothers Day

    Make a weekend of Mothers Day: Market, Movies & Cake

    This year at Nest Mothers Day starts Friday night with Dinner and Movie "Looking for Grace".  

    Book an armchair and go in the draw to take the cake!  Both Friday and Saturday nights we are giving away a whole delicious big Mothers day cake to take home and enjoy with mum, gran or any beloved people in your life.

    Saturday morning is the Mothers Day Market 9am-1pm.  A chance to score some gorgeous last minute gifts on the lawns with our local makers and growers and of course in store Nest has a range of new pretty purposeful finds too.

    We are open Friday and Saturday 8am-10pm for movies, breakfast lunch dinner and all day cake, coffee and wine.   Plenty of easy ways to spoil your mum with us this Mothers Day weekend.  Bookings recommended for lunch, dinner and movies 69482950

    Sunday we'll be enjoying Mothers Day with our own mums and children.

    The acclaimed new film from Sue Brooks, the multi award-winning director of Japanese Story and Road To Nhill, LOOKING FOR GRACE is an intimate, funny and profoundly moving story about the complexities of family life.

    When rebellious 16-year-old Grace (rising star Odessa Young) takes off, her exasperated mum and dad (the superb Radha Mitchell and Richard Roxburgh) enlist the help of a close-to-retirement detective, and begin the long drive from Perth out to the West Australian wheatbelt to try to find her. On the journey, the two must confront the realities of their changing relationship to one another, and to their daughter…

    Wry, intriguing and poignant, Brooks’ unflinching reflection on the disruptive effects of both adolescence and middle-age boasts her trademark sense of character, acerbic humour and eye for the hypnotic rhythms of Australia’s regional landscapes. Innovatively structured to incrementally reveal each character’s journey – and secrets – from numerous vantage points, LOOKING FOR GRACE is ultimately a beautiful, bold and unmistakably Australian story that reminds us that life is precious, and can change in the blink of an eye.

    "Gave me goosebumps. It’s a film that has stayed with me, and has continued to find new nooks inside my heart.”

    Screening 6-12 May:
    Friday 11am, 5pm, 8pm

    The Art of Free Travel - Meet this Adventure Family

    The Art of Free Travel - Meet this Adventure Family

    Coming to Nest this 19 November, the family behind the brand new book 'The Art of Free Travel' for a special launch in our Snowy Mountain region. 


    Patrick Jones and Meg Ulman, the authors of The Art of Free Travel, will be at Nest Cafe Cinema and Books in Tumbarumba on Thursday 19 November 5:30pm. The authors will read from and sign copies of their book and we'll be serving up complimentary wild dandelion coffee, foraged locally of course.

    The book describes their family's 400 day cycle up the east coast of Australia foraging, stealth camping and generally rule breaking in order to enact a unique form of low carbon travel. They passed through Tumba in late 2013. 
    If you'd like to take a short forage walk with Patrick & Meg before the Official Launch, meet at Nest at 4:30pm.   

    Check out their book trailer

    ‘We had made a life together in seven years; a big, wondrous, full, uncomplicated life. Now it was time for a little danger.’

    Meg Ulman and Patrick Jones lead a happy, low-carbon life with their family on a quarter-acre permaculture plot in regional Victoria, but they were craving an adventure.
    So with eleven-year-old Zephyr, toddler Woody and Zero their Jack Russell, they set off on a road trip with a difference – cycling 6,000km along Australia’s east coast, from Daylesford to Cape York and back.    We met them in November 2013 when they cycled their way through Tumbarumba and now they are cycling back to share their story and new book right here at Nest.

    ‘I don’t know anyone who lives their ideals quite like Meg and Patrick. Their family odyssey is full of honesty and heart – with lessons to take home and propagate!’

    About the Authors
    PATRICK JONES is an artist, poet, permaculturist, essayist and blogger. His work and activism has appeared in many publications including The Atlantic (US), The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, Angelaki (UK), Southerly, Cordite and Meanjin, Arena Magazine and Arena Journal. His favourite bush tucker is coal-cooked wild fish.
    MEG ULMAN is a blogger, editor and writer. She has had many articles published since she began work as a journalist in Melbourne editing the street magazine Fashion Journal. Meg’s favourite bush tucker is the Burdekin plum.

    Cereal Killers is the cult "real food" documentary featuring world famous sports scientist, Professor Tim Noakes MD as he guides one man through a 28 day, whole foods, high fat, sugar and wheat free diet, in a bid to prevent the heart disease and diabetes prevalent in his family - with remarkable results.
    Director: Yolanda Barker
    Stars: Donal O'Neill, Tim Noakes, John Briffa |

    In his bid to hack his genes and drop dead healthy, 41 year old Donal O'Neill spent 3 years researching the food and exercise protocol you will see in the movie.
    The resulting blend of pro fat, "sugar and wheat free" foods with a very specific exercise regime - confined to just 8 minutes maximal effort per week - meant no broadcaster would commission the highly controversial project.

    Cereal Killers will challenge your belief system as it relates to

    Food - what exactly is "healthy" food?
    Exercise - just how important is it and how do you really get lean?
    Weight Loss - have we all been looking the wrong way?
    Vitality - why do our energy levels rise and fall - and how can you fix that today?
    Cholesterol - what you (and your doc) really need to know.
    Type 2 Diabetes - is it 100% avoidable?
    This cult classic has also been challenging - and outranking - the biggest health food documentaries of the last 10 years on IMDB and Amazon.

    Run On Fat: Cereal Killers 2
    World class triathlete Sami Inkinen and Dr Steve Phinney challenge the efficacy and safety of "carb loading" for sports performance.
    Duration: 61 minutes
    Director: Yolanda Barker
    Writer: Donal O'Neill

    A Birthday

    A Birthday

    Six super years we have known as Nest this June 19

    Wow that is a lot of lovely days gathered in our nest surrounded by all the things we love including you.  Thank you for each time you've visited, had coffee, takeaway pizza, watched a film, made us smile, stoked the fire, shared a story... Our Nest is here because of you. The Guest book helps us to recall some of the hits and memories we've shared.

    Six years ago there was no fence, no gazebos, not pretty trees, no bistro blinds, no bookshelves or communal tables. The wall was orange, there was a weedy hilll out back where the vegie garden is now. We've had fun building our nest and look forward to sharing more of the good life with you and more friends into the future.

    If you read this and come in over the weekend, let us shout your coffee when you buy any cake or meal or a book or anything. Just mention the birthday email.

    Happy Birthday everyone!

    p.s we had a big party for our 5th birthday and my folks only put on parties for us every few years, so, maybe for our 10th?!

    Meet the Weiss family, who are making their way in Hollywood rife with money, fame, envy, and relentless hauntings. Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a famed TV self-help therapist with an A-list celebrity clientele. Meanwhile, Cristina Weiss (Olivia Williams) has her work cut out managing the career of their disaffected child-star son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a fresh graduate of rehab at age 13. Yet unbeknownst to them, another member of the Weiss family has arrived in town - mysteriously scarred and tormented Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), just released from a psych ward and ready to start again. She soon works her way into a friendship with a limo driver (Robert Pattinson) and becomes personal assistant to unraveling actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), who is beset by the ghost of her legendary mother, Clarice (Sarah Gadon). But Agatha is on a quest for redemption - and even in this realm of the artificial, and the unearthly, she's determined to find it, no matter what it takes.
