Martin promotes the Turquoise Coast endorses and uses Calphalon cookware, Western Potatoes, Golden Eggs, Blue Waters Beef, British Sausage Company, Salitage Wines, Fini Olive oil and Whittington’s Herbs and Spices.  

The turquoise coast nestled right in the middle of the Shire of Dandaragan. Emu Downs Wind Farm is located 15 kilometres east of the Brand Highway. A joint venture between Stanwell and Griffin Energy, Emu Downs Wind Farm host 47 turbines. In full production (which is most days) they can generate enough electricity to service 50,000 homes per year. Each turbine stands 70 metres high and turn automatically to face the wind, all controlled by computer. If you are thinking of having one in your back garden it will cost you a cool 3 million dollars and not to mention a bit of hassle with planning permission!  Emu Downs also sponsors the Waddi Music Festival held in March 2008.
