A change of pace for world-class cricketer Matthew Hayden.
Matthew Hayden's Home Ground will appeal to anyone who's ever dreamed of making their family's life just that little bit better.
Created by The LifeStyle Channel, this unique and intimate six-part series goes beyond growing produce, cooking and interviews, it's a story about a world-class cricketer choosing a new life... the country life. Passionate about his family, the outdoors and food, this is Matthew Hayden's journey back to his home town, exploring what home means to him as he works to make his ideal a reality. Retiring from the Australian cricket team last year Matthew is on a quest to achieve a more self-sufficient, sustainable and enriched lifestyle for his family as he discovers what is best to grow and graze in order to live the good life.
“After years of cricket, touring, training and team-work, I’ve decided to focus on some of my other passions and dedicate some time and energy to my little corner of the world,” said Matthew Hayden. “The farmer in me wants to reconnect with the land, the cook wants to grow his own veggies and the dad wants his kids to know where their food comes from. Like a lot of people, I just want to do things a little bit better.” Guided by project manager and horticulturist Nicole Moon, Matthew will explore the myriad of options open to him.
In each hour long episode he’ll visit local growers, decide what to grow or raise at home and treat family and friends to a meal based on the produce he’s just sourced. As the series progresses, he will source ingredients from his own garden as his dream of a flourishing homestead becomes a reality.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
