Ruby Gardens Resort manager Maria Prosser says the event was a huge success. “Everyone who grew up in Australia knows about the Leyland Brothers. Mal has some great stories to share and everyone enjoyed hearing them,” she says.

“Mal lives at one of Living Gems Resorts on the Sunshine Coast. As well as being a great travel writer and story teller, he is a wonderful ambassador for the active lifestyle resorts”.

  1. I travelled with Mike and Mal all over Australia, was good to see Mal and his wife on Australian Story, keep going Mal!!

  2. Yes ask the Leyland brothers. Enjoyed their story on ABC, glad they made up. That was sad that they drew apart.
