It’s not every day that really inspiring people come into your lives. Following our exhibit at the Cairns Show we were fortunate enough to meet Matty G, a chainsaw artist from Meleny in southern Queensland. The Cairns Show had asked him to come along and show his talents with the chainsaw for the three day show. Loving his work, we got talking to Matt about the possibility of carving out a Platypus for us to display down at our Platypus Hut. This culminated in a brief overnight stay at Sweetwater with his family, lovely Tara, his son Jamie, and daughter Mia. The following morning Glenn and Matt found a perfect log and Matt went to work his magic. The result is amazing, so if you stay at Sweetwater and are not lucky enough to see the real thing, at least you can marvel at Matt’s artistry whilst enjoying this special part of our property!

We’re hoping he will return one day … watch this space!
