  1. Rosella or the Aldi house brand will suffice Uncle Les,the Brown Sauce is good for Mixed Gorillas and Full Pommy Brekky's.
  2. Many thanks Mr Gut for the heads up on the Park Cafe on Radiance of the Sea. Really great Pies made onboard also the sausage rolls were top class. Two types of Pies Beef and Chicken, only drawback was that terrible 57 varieties Tomato Ketchup that is nearly as bad as that yellow mustard, both could be used as paint stripper.😀
  3. Thanks for the tip will be on board her in Feb, Pies and the Hot Dogs from the Doghouse should help the calorie intake😁
  4. I just put on 3kg looking at that Pic Mr Gut, almost put me of finishing my Stilton and Crackers, from Aldi. I said almost.😋
  5. The Bus direct from the wharf has a bonus of not having to pay for the Shuttle Bus, also a nice scenic tour of Brisbane.
  6. Voyager of the Seas 16th Nov 2019 Singapore to Sydney. Radiance of the Seas 9th Feb 2020 Sydney to Perth. 30 nights in total Ron & Brenda
  7. We are from Melbourne and go to the Sunshine Coast on a regular basis of at the least twice a year, so we endorse bronte2's advice. The Lone Pine has other advantages, like Platypus and Kookaburra exhibits. A nice way to visit is to go up the Brisbane River on the MV Mirramar which leaves and returns to central Brisbane
  8. Nice Pic David, looking forward to going aboard her again in Feb for a trip to Perth.
  9. I would rather open a Queen's Farm Shop like the one on Datchet Road in the Windsor Great Park, a sure fire way of printing money. By the way Uncle Les that Spanish golf club owes me a load of cash I'm sure there machines were rigged😂
  10. I still think The Company Shed at West Mersea has the best seafood in Essex, superb local oysters and great cockles kept the wife and I sated. The missus gobbled a load Whelks as well, I'm a bit like you Brian there a bit crunchy.
  11. The ETA will suffice as long as you are not staying over 3 months
  12. For Australia go to www.eta.homeaffairs.gov.au NZ is through immagration nz. Best to use Government sites so your info is secure. ETA for OZ has a admin fee of $20AU. Hope this helps.
  13. It certainly is domestic,however the only holdup you may encounter is late arrival of the ship or the bio boys. At that time of the day Sydney traffic is bedlam, you might be better of on the train from Circular Quay to the Airport. Hope this helps.
  14. I hear the Penalty Princess is going to join Finey McFine Face at the Zoo terminal🤣
  15. The HOHO Bus doesn't venture up Mt Wellington as far as I know, there used to be private shuttles which gave you about an hour at the top.
  16. Ships Tour to the GBR is the best option.owing to the problems of wind and swell affecting tendering at times.
  17. The best repellent for sandflies is Rid available at most supermarkets in spray or cream. Rid was developed in the tropics where the little devils play havoc.
  18. I think it's time to see Dubbo again, like the idea of a Mixed Grill and a bed across the road.
  19. We always made Dubbo a overnight stop when driving to Qld in the past. Top tucker and ale at a really great RSL.
  20. Depends on the ship being cleared by the Port for disembarking and arriving on time. The Ferry Terminal is close to the Cruise terminal so it should be ok. The 9.45 maybe the safe option, hope this helps
  21. If you are anywhere near Brisbane I would head to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, they also have Platypus. The Sanctuary is also devoid of Drop Bears.
  22. Well down indeed, they are now called "South Sea Poms"are you thinking of migrating again Brian?😂
