Too right Grumpy! This is the time of year the sun comes up and goes down in a different spot every day. 28c=82f, my perfect temp, not there quite yet.

The exchange rate is in your favor now. The Aussie is worth US $.92. Spring and fall are the best times to visit. Jan and Feb, depending where you go, are either hot and dry or hot and humid.

Our last visitors flew to Tasmania, hired a van and camped their way up to Brisbane. Then we all went to Cairns and back. It’s a good way to see the place!

Grumpy – I’m sitting in Adelaide today wrapped up in a blanket! I’m hoping this is just the last blast of cold before we get back to what we had last week. It was good weather indeed.

The Aussie dipped below US $.90 today. The exporters and tourism industry would like to see US $.85.

Very true Bill. Not good for Ausies travelling to the US but good for travelling to Aus.
