Talking women’s health, art, and rugby on South of the River

It was an eclectic mix on South of the River with Alli Harding on Sunday 2 April.

Highett coaches Pippa and Maddie from Strong Women Can were in the studio discussing the importance of strength and fitness for women of all ages.

Lisa Sullivan, the curator of the new Atmosphere exhibition of artist Clarice Beckett’s works.  Beckett was a prolific artist, and much of her work focused on the area around Beaumaris, where she lived for some years. The exhibition is at Geelong Gallery until July 9. And – please – let us know if you find an unknown Beckett painting in your back shed!

Rugby is a growing sport in Australia – in fact, the Rugby World Cup (men) is here in 2027, and the women’s in 2029. Alli interviewed three members of the Liley family – dad James and daughters Cerys and Ati (pictured) – and discovered they are doing a lot to promote the sport.
