Over 10 years ago, singer Wendy
Matthews quit Bondi for the NSW mid-north coast. On four-hectare
mountain-top property near Coffs Harbour, she and some mates -
including actor Russell Crowe - built a tepee using heavy,
waterproof canvas. The Canadian-born singer of '90s
Day You Went Away and I
Don't Wanna Be with Nobody but You would often leave
Sydney about 5pm on a Friday and by midnight would be lying in her
double bed with the roof flap open, gazing at the trees and stars.
She'd spend not only weekends but weeks at a time in the tepee.
