    Violent owner

    The owner of Blue Tongue is a violent man with zero compassion. He allows the house to fall into unsanitary conditions and if you cross him, he will scream in your face and kick you out. Do not give this man your money.

    ... I guess once you’ve seen two or three distillery/brewery tours, you’ve seen them all, especially as many now adopt the same modern techniques – the real enjoyment I suppose is sampling their fares at their freshest! The Bruce Highway (Australia’s ‘Motorway 1’) didn’t have as dynamic scenery as we’d seen driving across the states of America, as for 100s of km of driving we were continually flanked by ...

    ... going through security! I was lucky that I saw it! I would have probably missed my flight as I would have gone to go to the gate when it was boarding and then had to queue for an hour to get through security! So I made it through, ordered my cooked breakfast which cost me $30 and sat waiting for it... My little buzzer they gave me didn't go off for aaaages so I was wondering where my food had got to! They were quite busy so I gave them ...

    We've also experienced a wide range of accommodations. That includes from camping on the beach in Tasmania to four-star hotels and resorts.

    After our two nights at Cradle Mountain, we packed ...
