Thank you very much for your generous and informative reply.
I will look forward to hearing more about your adventures when you return.
Hopefully I will be able to return your generiousity if ever you decide to travel down under.
We are about to travel to North Queensland, two world hertiage sites the great barrier reef and the Danitree Rainforest.
It's winter here, in South East Queensland but swimming weather up north.
Have a safe and fun trip.
