This really did happen... His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia standing next to Heidi Weitjens King Island Distillery.
So humbled, His Excellency bought a bottle of my King Island Native Gin 😊🙏 ( Together we discussed an exchange of our Limoncello and recipe notes too ).
A wish coming true, to be part of the KAB National Awards held on King Island, Tasmania. Because we are the 2022 Australian Tidy Town and Sustainable Community winner. I'm so proud of King Island and our community.
The Governor-General and wife Mrs Hurley are joint Patrons of Keep Australia Beautiful National Awards and hosts of the Australian Tidy Towns Awards.
The future is in our hands. Every Australian should be inspired and empowered to take action that helps to protect our environment for generations to come.
Starting in 1966, Keep Australia Beautiful was our nation’s first anti-litter campaigner and advocates to raise awareness on how we can all live more sustainably.
