  1. It varies from state to state and year to year and school to school but generally Australian school kids go back around the last week of January/first week of February.
  2. Would not recommend. We don't know what flights/airlines will be in place after this current situation passes. What was possible pre-COVID may not be an option in the future. In the past I have been terribly delayed coming from Sydney to Brisbane and completely bumped to the next day.
  3. My husband's company asked him to get a covid test even though he's working from home (his allergies kicked into overdrive with the season change and they were concerned with all the coughing and sneezing during conference calls). I think the concern is nice, anyone with allergies is feeling the glare at the moment.
  4. We've got an election coming up in a few short weeks. Nothing would surprise me.
  5. Yep. I just don't trust the media will have always have the correct information. Link to your quote was for backing up your statement as much as anything else.
  6. https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19/current-status/statistics See link for official figures. Five of the 8 new cases are from the one family and linked to existing case. Definitely more mask wearing happening in Brisbane with the recent increase in cases.
  7. I have an Aunt and Uncle who were on the Sea Princess sailing around Australia when it was cancelled earlier in the year. They use the round Australia cruise to visit their friends. Flying has become very difficult for my Uncle so they get the chance to have a bit of a holiday on the cruise and visit their friends at the various port stops. I think it's a great idea and one I'll steal at some stage in the future if I find myself in the same shoes.
  8. Bingo. Tag you're it. This is the second oldest shipwreck in Australia found at the WA Shipwrecks Museum in Frementle.
  9. Not the Mary Rose but that is totally on my must see list.
  10. This old ship is not in Copenhagen 🙂
  11. This one is not my photo (I flogged it off the internet and don't have someone I can attribute it to). However, I have been here but the photos are on the other computer and the person at work is not to be disturbed.
  12. You would be surprised by how many different sorts of boats with eyes are in various Asian countries 🙂
  13. You put my google skills to the test but I think it's U Bein Bridge, Amarapura, Mandalay, Myanmar, Asia
