Question by Senor: Vacation spots?
If I was to visit Australia/New zealand for a week, where should I go and what should I see?
Thank you for all the vacation spots, but I am actually thinking about moving to Australia from the U.S. I have already paid the necessary fees and want to stay for a while. I’m into the night club scene and the “celebrity” scene. Where should I go to experience the best time? P.S. I’m not a celebrity.

On the Sunshine Coast, Queensland is Mooloolaba for the family, it is beautiful and amazing, you will want to live there, or the Gold Coast. If you want an Island Holiday you can’t go past one of the Whitsunday Islands.

Question by : Driving Under-aged on a highway, Sydney, Australia! HELP!?
Ok, so far, i’ve learnt how to drive on small and quiet roads near my house with my father, and decided to drive on a high way; LOC: Lidcombe, Sydney, Australia. Well, so far i’m 15 years of age, will be turning 16 on the 3rd of September.. I was really dying to drive on big roads such as highways and main roads, begged my father if he’d let.. YES he did, but LOL i turned the lights and after like 200 metres, there were breath test! aww damn, well yeah i couldn’t stop in the middle of highway and turn around or stop and swap with my father; this would’ve of course caused more heat and attraction of the car stopping in the middle of a highway. Anyways, the police officer took all my details, also my fathers.. I was issued to pay a fine of $ 670 -$ 680 fine, also court on the next month.. I’m really, really curious in what will happen, if any of you guys/girls know anything about this may you please tell me what worse is going to happen The officer also said; You won’t be getting your L’s license permit at the age of 16.. But i guess its the judge’s decision, not his.. PLEASE someone tell me what will happen! Thanks, much love.
I’m 15, haven’t applied or gotten my license yet for those who couldn’t be bothered reading…..

You’re going to go to court, pay the fine, and possibly get your licence taken off you before you’ve even got it. Your father could also get a fine of his own. You could try and claim you took a wrong turning, but lets face it the pair of you were extremely stupid to do this.

History of Karratha Western Australia
In the language of local Aborigines Karratha means good country. With spinifex carpeted hills, Karratha and its creeks are lined with beautiful white-barked coolabahs trees. Close by are peaceful rock pools and beautiful picnic spots where you can lunch besides the layers of rock caused by ancient geological forces.
The Karratha area was first settled as a result of F. W. Gregory’s glowing reports about the pastoral potential of the Pilbara. In 1866 Dr Baynton and Harry Whittal-Venn established Karratha Station.
The original project location could no longer house the workers, buildings and equipment needed for the massive Hamersley Iron mining project that extracted iron-ore from the nearby Hamersley Ranges. And so, in 1968 on Nickel Bay, Karratha was born as a joint State Government-Hamersley Iron development.
The huge North West Shelf Project has also been vital to Karrathas livelihood, drilling into rich natural gas reserves off the coast behind the islands of the Dampier Archipelago. These and other local companies using Karrathas wealth of natural resources have invested in the town and it has easily out-grown its company town status.

The Last Night of Ballyhoo By Alfred Uhry April 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23 December 1939 was an exciting time in Atlanta, Ga., what with two big social events looming — the grand premiere of “Gone With the Wind” and, for the local Jewish community, the annual Ballyhoo debutante ball. But for the Freitag family, this holiday will bring them unexpectedly face to face with the heritage they’ve largely buried. Alfred Uhry’s “The Last Night of Ballyhoo” opens April 8 with performances at 7:30 pm Fridays and Saturdays through April 23 in the performance space at Seventh and Chester streets in downtown Little Rock. Tickets are for general admission and for students and seniors age 65 and older. For information or reservations, call (501) 374-3761, or visit the Web site, www.weekendtheater.org. In “Ballyhoo,” Uhry, the author of “Driving Miss Daisy” and the book for the musical “Parade,” (both of which have also been produced at the Weekend Theater) takes another look at how Southern Jews fit — or, perhaps at times, didn’t — into their community (which Uhry knew well, having been born and raised in Atlanta). “What’s interesting about this show is that it truly is an old-fashioned romantic comedy, but there are some serious themes to it. It’s nice to learn through comedy,” says director Andy Hall. “I think what also attracted me to this show is the family aspect,” he adds. “It does a good job of depicting a real family of that time and place.” Bachelor Adolph Freitag (Alan …
