Default Spring Time In Tasmania

Well after doing double tours of Winters North and South I finally get to be home for Spring Time Down Under for once, even though it's still cold as ice. with 4 seasons in one day Wind Rain Sun and Snow.
The old Girl said... Now you're back get out, and mow the back block.. and while your at it, clean out the weeds in the lily pond, Oh well, so much for having a bludge.

OK Take a direct flight from Heathrow direct to Brisbane.

I mean where else in the world would a Government had out 21 grand for a deposit towards your first home and you don't have to pay it back either.

The Aussie Government gives $21,000.00 to immigrants to move there? Do you need Plumbers?
