G'day Guys.,

Just back from six weeks away. Stayed in my own country this time around. Hit Tasmania, Western Australia and Queensland. Had a fantastic time. Lots of walks, vineyards and general wanderings. Had some good talks with the locals and just canít get over the amazing natural beauty of this great southern land.

Everything was cool, but some things do stand out. Tasmaniaís south with all the villages and awesome wilds, Pennyroyal (piratical high adventure) in Launceston, Broome in Western Australia where the echoes of the old pearling days still resound in the evening twilight and Cairns. Second time there, and itís even better than the first time. Sun and sea and fun. Tjapukai, The Tablelands, Undara. Fantastic !!!
