In recent years the Gatekeepers Cottage has been 'home' to over 40 artists in residence at Police Point Shire Park, Portsea. Built in the late 1800's the cottage was originally used by policemen overseeing quarantine operations in the area. Cameron Robbins is an artist in residence during March/April 2019 and will open the studio doors for visitors.

It's not a stretch to say that we're all familiar with the "slip, slop, slap" message; however, new research says the risk of skin damage under the sun's rays must be taken more seriously. In a world-first study, researchers from the ANU and NZIWAR found that, on average, regions like the Mornington Peninsula and cities like Melbourne only experienced two days a year where there wasn't enough UV to get sun damage. Two days! They found that even if the UV index is low and if you're outside for more than 15 minutes... you're at risk. Making sure you prioritise a skin check is just as important as a health check.
