In a small country town named Yogga Yogga, passion for yoghurt from France has become so entrenched that Aussies have taken on the French way of life.

This town, though, is actually parts of Weston and Mulbring, in Cessnock local government area, which feature in a television commercial for Yoplait yoghurt.

The advertisement, which recently went to air, features an Australian family who prefer a French breakfast.

A family man drives a converted Citroen ute through country roads where the imagery is Australian, but ‘‘a little French’’.

Weston was chosen for its ‘‘iconic architecture and village feel’’, with the Criterion Hotel becoming ‘‘The Frog and Snail Hotel’’ in the commercial.

The scenic backdrop and rural character of Mulbring were considered prime Australian imagery for the brief, which included landscapes that ‘‘scream country Australia”.

Screen Hunter Central Coast and Cessnock City Council’s economic development unit scouted areas for the commercial.

Cessnock Mayor Bob Pynsent said the council was ‘‘proud of what’s in our own backyard’’.

The film organisation’s manager, Annette Hubber, said the area’s picturesque qualities were ‘‘the ideal location to represent regional Australia’’.

The Nationals stronghold in north-west Victoria is held by long-serving MP John Forrest, who will stand down at the September election after 20 years in parliament.

The Nationals have endorsed former president of the Victorian Farmers Federation Andrew Broad as their candidate. The Nationals hold Mallee by 24.41 per cent, making it the Coalition’s safest federal seat in Australia.

Some in the Nationals are frustrated by the move, but are still confident of holding the seat.

Sources suggested that the Liberals running a candidate was a ”waste of resources” for the Coalition.The Liberal Party’s administrative committee agreed to open nominations for the rural seat on Thursday night.

State Liberal director Damien Mantach said the party consulted widely before making the decision.

“We look forward to running a candidate who will further highlight how Labor has neglected rural and regional Victoria,” he said in a statement.

“The best thing that can happen for the communities of Mallee is to get rid of the Gillard government and restore strong, stable and competent government to Australia.”

The last time the Liberals challenged the rural seat was in 1993 when Mr Forrest won by less than 1000 votes.

A South Australian manwill never forget the moment when he scratched away at an instant scratchie and revealed he had won $20,000.

The man’s big win camewhile he was taking care of some other important business.

“I was sitting on the toilet when I scratched my instant scratchies ticket,” the man, whose identity has not been released,said.

“I just yelled out that I’d won, I couldn’t believe it.”

The pensioner from Whyalla, in the state’s south,said he’s not a regular instant scratchies player which added to his surprise at winning.

“I just had some spare change when I was at the shops and thought I’d buy a ticket,” he said.

“I don’t normally play and have always said I reckon nobody wins.

“I almost feel bad for people who do buy tickets regularly because I bought the winning one.”

The lucky winner has shared the good news with his family and has a fair idea for how he will spend his prize.

“I told my kids afterwards and they’re really excited too,” the man said.

“There was a lot of happiness and tears.”

“I’m going to buy a good second hand car with the prize money and bank the rest.”
