I am pleased that I can share our thoughts and even reveal our passions through this net, Marilyn, especially with informed readers such as yourself.

Hi Ian from Sydney. I have long thought this barn ought to be heritage listed and permanently given the name "Ernst's Corner/Barn." It's what our family has always called it too. Do you know who owns it now? I heard that Eric Randall had sold. Someone thought he may have even passed away. I would hate for someone new to buy it off the government and demolish it, or for the name Ernst's Corner to fade from history. Troy Reeves.

Hi Troy,

Perhaps we should team up and write a submission to the Heritage team at GRC, Troy. It is also a significant reminder of the Schleswig-Holstein heritage of many of the early farmers on the Bollier Flats and around Tuchekoi.

I don't know the latest on land sales and leases, but the last I heard it was being leased by Hamiltons. Eric Randall has passed away, a few years ago now.

Templeton's have bought the parallel farm on the east side of the Coonoon Gibber and have planted ginger already, and intend also to grow sugar cane as well.

We'd welcome a visit anytime: the Boyz from Imbil get together. In Imbil,

Ian
