Join the facebook market place today…

The creation of facebook market place has helped to deliver a new paradigm for those who just love to buy, swap and sell.

Traditionally, avid bargain hunters trawled through the many facebook buy, swap and sell pages and groups looking for that certain something.

Late last year, facebook launched the “Market Place” which is a one stop destination for anyone looking to trade online or just simply have some fun.

The market place is great for communities and the interface allows for localised searching, making it very easy to find stuff for sale in your neighbourhood.

It also saves the task of monitoring a swag of buy, swap and sell groups and pages, keeping feeds and notifications to a minimum.

Houdini’s land model plane

Today marks the 2nd anniversary of Houdini’s Café e Cucina in Diggers Rest.

Diggers Rest is well known for the First Powered Controlled flight of an aircraft in Australia by the famous escapologist Harry Houdini in 1910.

In 2010, the community in partnership with Melton Council celebrated the 100 year anniversary of the original flight paying tribute to the pilot Harry Houdini.

Named the “Festival of Flight”, the three day event produced two scale model replicas of Houdini’s Voisin bi-plane.

One was the model built by local Bacchus Marsh aviation enthusiast the late Gary Sunderland.

The model was gifted to the Diggers Rest History Project by Melton historian Graeme Minns and is now on display at Houdini’s Café e Cucina in Diggers Rest.
