What do a brass fireman’s helmet, a signature christening
quilt, an old china carving plate that’s served up hundreds of
Sunday roasts, a handcrafted leather picture of a trout and an
1880’s top hot have in common?
They are all treasures owned by residents of Hayfield Plains
Retirement Village - and they are all part of a new exhibition
at the Balaklava Courthouse Gallery.
“Off The Wall: Hayfield Plains” is the Gallery’s first exhi-
bition for 2013, and the second in an occasional series of
exhibitions where residents of a particular Balaklava street
are invited to lend their treasured paintings, photographs and
‘objets d’art’ accompanied by a short ‘story’ about why each
object is important to them. It makes for a very interesting
exhibition, and is a chance to peek inside other people lives
and learn a little of their history and talents and interests.
Ranging from beautiful landscape paintings and historical
photographs, to etchings and wood turning, crafts from hot
poker work to embroidery, from loved portraits and valued
special awards to humble domestic items, every object has
a story to tell.
“Off The Wall” Hayfield Plains” opened last week and runs
until Sunday March 17, with the Official Opening of the ex-
hibition to take place on Monday February 25, at 10am. You
are welcome to join Hayfield Plains residents on that day, to
share morning tea and enjoy the exhibition.
Whenever you do it, make sure you don’t miss this wonder-
fully diverse exhibition!

The “Our Mob” project, which provides indigenous artists
from all over South Australia with the opportunity to showcase
their art and culture at SA’s premier arts facility, has been
presented at Adelaide Festival Centre annually since 2006.
It celebrates the energy, quality and diversity of the state’s
indigenous art and has been one of the most successful of
its kind for its inclusiveness, its broader opportunities, its ac-
cessibility and the ownership its participants feel. Every year
a different region is featured and the exhibition is enormously
popular, with many artists submitting multiple artworks in the
hope they will be selected for it.
Country Arts SA has toured selective highlights from the “Our
Mob” exhibition every second year since its inception. “Our
Mob: On Tour” is a wonderful opportunity to show audiences
how regional Aboriginal artists draw on their sense of place
to develop inspiration. If you ever drive from the Far West
of SA to the South-East, the vast differences between towns
and regions can clearly be seen out of the window. In the
same way, drawing together artwork and artists from so many
different backgrounds highlight’s our state’s artistic diversity.
This program gives regional audiences an opportunity to dis-
cover locally the diversity and creative talent of South Aus-
tralia’s Aboriginal artists, and Balaklava Courthouse Gallery
is proud to be part of this touring exhibition for the first time.
And, in conjunction with the exhibition, beautiful handcrafted
Aboriginal artefacts from a locally owned private collection
are also on display.
“Our Mob 2012: On Tour” is open at the Balaklava Court-
house Gallery for six weeks, on Thursday, Friday and Sunday
afternoons between 2 and 4 pm from Thursday March 21
until Sunday April 28. Don’t miss the chance to call in and
enjoy this excellent and beautiful snapshot of current indig-
enous art making!
DEFENCE PROOF & EXPERIMENTAL
ESTABLISHMENT PORT WAKEFIELD:
LIVE FIRING RANGE WARNING NOTICE
Test and evaluation activities involving static firings and/or firings of naval and
artiller y weapons are conducted at the Proof and Experimental Establishment
Port Wakefield throughout the year. The Proof and Experimental Establishment
Port Wakefield is a vital Defence test and evaluation capability that has
supported Defence since 1929.
These firings may require specific tidal or weather conditions, and are critical
for the safety of current and new Defence capabilities. Members of the public
may notice noise, vibration, flashes and/or smoke during the testing. There is
no risk to the public outside of the gazetted Defence Practice Areas.
For reasons of public safety, there is a permanent exclusion zone covering
land, sea and air around the Port Wakefield Establishment. Specific details
on the Port Wakefield Prohibited Area can be obtained from Commonwealth of
Australia Gazette No GN 26, 4 July 1990, and is shown on the diagram below.
Trespassing in this Area is strictly prohibited and very dangerous due to the
presence of unexploded bombs. Any person found within the Prohibited Area
or on Defence land will be subject to prosecution.
Specific test and evaluation activities may also require restricting public
access to the Port Wakefield Defence Practice Areas over specific periods with
these areas articulated in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No. GN 40,
7 October 1992, and also identified on the diagram below. This may affect
access to the Gulf of St Vincent at Port Wakefield and Port Parham.
If any member of the public has inquiries in relation to these activities please
contact Proof & Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield – Range Control,
on (08) 8867 0270 between 8.00am and 4.30pm weekdays or the
Proof & Experimental Establishment Port Wakefield – Security Office, on
(08) 8867 0299 outside these hours.
