Struggling cars on a 3200 fundraising odyssey for The Royal Flying Doctor service now have a secret weapon called The Beast – a purpose-built 10-tonne rescue truck to haul them out of trouble.
Converted from a US Federal Emergency Rescue tilt tray, the Beast was overhauled in Adelaide to become the Oz Odyssey Rescue Truck, designed to rescue any bush basher in rapid time.

Unified identity management leader Centrify is increasing its footprint in Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific by recruiting sales channel specialist Niall King to lead its sales force for the region.

Centrify’s stronger push into Asia Pacific follows its May announcement that it had raised $42 million in funding from strategic investors including Samsung Ventures, Fortinet Inc. and Docomo Capital.
A $600,000 business centre planned to help small businesses in the Adelaide Hills town of Woodside is on hold because Telstra is unable to provide telephone lines for the recently refurbished building.
Adelaide Hills Business Centre founder and experienced business coach Gordon Kay was gobsmacked when Telstra informed him that no telephone lines were available for the building. “When I called Telstra last December, they said to place my order when the renovation was finished,” he said.
“So I contacted them at the start of June and was told – four weeks later - that no phone lines or ADSL2+ services were available. I was gobsmacked. Of all the things that I’d considered to set up this business centre, it had never crossed my mind that it would not be possible to get a telephone line.
