Hi, me again.

I've made it to Perth, the beaches are awesome, warmer than my average bath! Sorry I didn't make it to the spin last night, was enjoying some fine WA Shiraz instead (couldn't drive or spin). Not sure if I can make it tonight, I'll see what my girlfriend's plans are (I have to rely on her navigational skills, I get lost trying to walk around the block). Great place, I'm sure my opinion will change if I get bitten by something though (my girlfriend keeps taunting me with stories of tiger snakes and Ross River virus - just to keep me on edge). Hope to catch up tonight, off to Albany tomorrow for some botanising.

Cheers

There is a big spin Wed night on the foreshore at South Perth from 7.30pm

If you stay in Albany you should be safe from RRV and its friendly cousin Barmah Forrest Virus (I kid you not).

Instead of adding a new thread (and getting told to do a durbs ) I thought I'd post in here! I'm coming to the land of Oz at the end of March. Will be going to Ben in Adelaide to begin with then we're going to go to as many places as we can afford. We were just after some ideas of places to go to and any cool events which will be happening from end of April onwards! We definately want to go to Perth, Brisbane, Cairns, Melbourne, Sydney and hopefully Tas too but are keen to find out whats going on and when! I'm so excited about hopefully meeting people from here!! Hope I've posted this in the right place - sorry if I've not!!

Apparently toothpaste smeared on the back of your neck will keep the dropbears away!

If she hasn't got a suit of armour she can definitely fit you with some chain mail! hehehe

When you come to Perth try to organise it so you are here for a Monday and Tuesday cause they are our regular twirl nights....but if you can't make it on one of those days if you let us know when you will be coming we should be able to organise a fire twirling party either on the foreshore or at the old Midland Train Tunnel.

Gnor and I can talk it up and maybe organise it together if you wanna meet all us strange and unual Perth twirlers.

Hope to see you here soon!

Let us know when you're headed to Brisvegas, welcome to come stay and we'll have all the saftey equpment u need (for critters above or below) + info on what is going on eventwise. Smallish outdoor doofy things a bit out of town tend to be everyother week or so, if you guys are into that sort of Marlarky.

A canadian couple I know really did have a koala fall on thier tent. The girl screamed DROP BEAR! and the rest of their camp (also all from the States or Canada) scattered from the campsite as fast as thier legs could carry them. No thoughts of heroism...
The Koala rolled around a bit then made it's way off, but they now tell anyone back home that cares to listen about thier 'close brush' with a drop bear. A few people here thought to comfort them by pretending the whole drop bear thing is a 'myth' or 'just something Aussie backpackers get a kick out of telling the others' but these white lies were to no avail...

Instant ancient tradition. We are up to three delightful English and one German and one USA guests being taken up the tunnel at Midnight.
We dont have castles but this is almost as good!! There is the chance to see drop bears and hoopsnakes on the way.
We found a roo one night between us an d the tunnel, it was too dark to see it as it jumped past at high speed within touching distance. (if we hadnt been hiding behind each other)

Thanks for the replies! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone. I'm leaving in 6 weeks so will be in touch once Ben & I have decided in what order we're going everywhere!

I liked the story about the drop bear, it was so funny, Kyle - that so could have been me screaming that! I tend to believe most things people tell me...
