My Wife and I travelled to Oz in 2002 to see the eclipse and we also got married out there. Ayers rock is excellent but avoided climbing it as it is sacred to the local tibes and you should seek permission first as i understand it. The Loci (spirits of place) are very friendly too - particularly the Rainbow Serpent.

When I someday get a chance to go out and visit I'll definitely be visiting the various wine countries smile That will be the main attraction for me!

Lisa, you should also visit some of the more unusual wine growing areas.

The Granite Belt (Stanthorpe) has some magnificent wines (and wine tours) and you need to come to Brisbane and make a visit to Sirromet Wines (which is actually within the Brisbane city limits!)

I only wish that the Bundaberg Fruit Winery was still in production - they had some magnificent wines (their plum wine was just plain gorgeous - and they also made a beautiful honey dew melon and a water melon wine - both just tasted of summer!).

I would really love to go to Australia, the only concern I have is the fact it has some of the most deadliest creatures on earth and it panics me that I could be in my hotel and a poisonous snake or deadly spider could crawl into my room! That is my only set back :( Are deadly creature encounters often in Australia? If not and its just me being silly then I'd better start saving my pennies.... well hundreds of pounds!

Australians are the friendliest people in the world. They helped make my visit there a success.

Again, thanks Jim for your lovely words. One thing I understand about the Aussie nature is that we don't often stand on ceremony, (in fact we shun pretence in all its forms), we're happy to look you in the eye and tell it like it is, and we are very good at laughing at ourselves.

Come back to Oz, Jim, we can show you a really good time!

Cheerio for now

Linda and I visited the Jacobs Creek wineries when we visited Adelaide. We are still using some of the practical souvenirs, such as the champagne fizz cork saver, now ten years later. the wine itself was excellent. smile

I would love to go to Australia and visit the wine country. I also would make sure I get to stand near Ayers Rock and feel the spiritual vibrations. Such beautiful land there.

We went there too when we visited Alice Springs. It's five hours each way by coach(!) but nice through the Outback. It is very spiritual and next time I hope to climb it- but only with the permission of the Loci via the local Shaman.
