    I'm back from my holiday up in Queensland where the family and I had a blast. Anyway we went up there to buy a new car which we then drove the the roughly 2400km back to Adelaide. On the way we stopped off in Sydney and Temora in country NSW to check out the awesome warbirds in the museum there. I took heaps of pics so I'll be sure to post some of the more interesting ones here.
    All in all it's good to be home and I look forward to catching up with you guys again. cheers.

    Hey Andy welcome back mate. Good to see you back safe and sound.

    A Holden was bought I hope? :lol:

    Temora is great, did you catch a flying day?

    2400km is a fair whack on the dusty roads of Aus, look foward to the pictures mate.

    Cheers.

    Welcome back Wildcat. Was up in Queensland and down in Sydney myself two months ago, got to agree that the best way to see Oz is one the road - just takes a really long time 8) Looking forward to the pictures.

    Thanks for the welcome guys! SE and Heinz we brought a nice Suburu Impreza which is an absolute joy to drive in, but don't worry Alex there's still a Commodore in the driveway! :)

    First pics are from Lamington national park. Here you get to hand feed the birds and walk through the beautiful rainforest on boardwalks and through the tree tops on a suspension bridge type thingy. This area is also famous fro the aircrash and subsequent rescue attempt in the late 30's.
