Michael Gorey

Thanks for visiting my website. Here’s a little more information about Gorey Things.

This is the personal blog of Michael Gorey. I’m a 53-year-old communications professional living at Bargara near Bundaberg in Queensland.

I originally trained as a journalist and worked for many years as a regional newspaper editor and manager. Sadly, I lament what’s happened to the profession.

My current role at Bundaberg Regional Council includes oversight of the community news publishing site Bundaberg Now, which I was pleased to instigate with support from the Mayor and CEO.

Outside of work, my interests include genealogy, history, politics, reading, travel, walking, food and wine.

I have four children who live interstate and a lovely partner, Wendy, who I’m lucky to have in my life.

I write here infrequently but hope to increase the number of posts. The content will be varied including about travel, opinion and random history.
