Kangaroos in Australia by Colin Burnett

Nearly everyone who visits Queensland-Australia has on their 'to-do list' to see kangaroos in Australia.
Sometimes, people from other countries have mistaken ideas about how Australians interact with these
animals. Hint: Australians don't keep animals as pets!
Kangaroos don't carry children's school books for them, either. They don't usually alert people to danger. Locals often do, nonetheless, have a special place in the hearts for roos.
Many Queensland-Australian aboriginal dreamtime stories feature kangaroos. One such story is called 'Wilkuda and the Kangaroo'. In this story, a kangaroo skin is spread out in a desert and slowly spreads, becoming the famous lake called Lake Eyre.
Another story explains why kangaroos look the way they do. In 'How the Kangaroo go its tail', the story goes that a wombat threw a spear at one, one day. This became his tail.
Another story explains that during the Australian aboriginal dreamtime, the female kangaroo was given a pouch. This was provided by the God of All Creatures. The God of All creatures gave female kangs a pouch to prevent their young joeys from wandering off.
The numerous Dreamtime stories relating to kangaroos highlight their importance in Australia. The kangaroo is even part of Australia's coat of arms. This is the official symbol of Australia.
People looking to see kangas have a few options. They could, of course, visit a zoo. Australia has a number of zoos, including Steve Irwin's zoo in Queensland-Australia.
Sometimes, visitors will be lucky enough to see kangaroos when they least expect it. If they are staying in a rural area, they may see a group of kangaroos. Such a group is called 'a mob'.
Sometimes people will see kangaroos hopping across roads in the wild. In areas where this happens frequently, there are usually signs warning that roos are about. This is so drivers slow down and don't accidentally hit one.
If people really want to see kangaroos in Australia in the wild, they can head to one of many national parks. Different types of kangaroos live in different areas. For instance, red kangaroos tend to live in inland deserts.
Grey kangaroos tend to prefer less dry areas like eastern Australia. Grey kangaroos are the most commonly-seen species of kangaroo. There is another type of kangaroo - called tree kangaroos- that live in trees in northern Queensland-Australia!
There is no denying that kangaroos are a fascinating animal. Seeing kangaroos in Australia should rightly be on every travellers 'to-do list'!
Until next time.....

Tourism Australia by Colin Burnett

Hey mate, I"m back.......
Lets talk about Tourism Australia today...
Tourism Australia is thriving at the moment.
One of the biggest decisions as a tourist though is how you will travel or get around. There are so many things to do in Queensland. It is also a large state and you'll need some form of transport if you want to see everything.
If you're backpacking... A large chunk of tourism Australia is the option of backpacking. If you're backpacking, it probably means you're on a tight budget. There are a number of ways you can get around on a budget, including utilising one of the low cost air carriers like Tiger Airways(fares from under AU$30 around the state). Just be prepared for delays and no-frills service as they are a budget part of tourism Australia.
Alternatively, you could try and journey on one of the long-haul bus services (check out the Greyhound Australia bus service), and if your journey is overnight, you'll save a night's accommodation money, too. One of the other popular ways to move if you're travelling through Queensland is to self-drive.
Many travellers check local noticeboards at backpacker's resorts for cars going cheap and then drive it until it doesn't go anymore! Another option is to hire a vehicle. The Wicked Vans are very popular as they not only include a mode of transport but also have cooking facilities and a bed inside so you're food and accommodation are taken care of, too! With their graffiti slogans on the outside, they're a trendy way to get around around Queensland, although a little basic for some people's taste.
If you want more comfort...
If you're beyond backpacking and require a little more comfort, there are plenty of ways for you for cruise around Queensland, too. With about twenty airports in the state (including three international ones in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Cairns), you'll have your pick of carriers to get you between cities, and this option wins easily if you want convenience. Try Qantas and Virgin Blue for a more 'civilised' service between cities.
Once you arrive at your destination, you can get a taxi or sometimes a courtesy bus to your accommodation venue. If you're keen to self-drive, you can hire a car for less than AU$60 a day and then choose accommodation when you get to each location (or book online on wotif.com.au before you get there).
Alternatively, you could hire a Britz van (similar to a Wicked van but catering to a more mature market). With some vans coming complete with a bathroom and shower, as well as a bed and cooking facilities, it's pure camping luxury!
Another good option is Queensland rail travel. There are a number of train services, including the Sunlander which goes along the coast from Brisbane to Cairns and the Spirit of the Outback which goes between Brisbane and Longreach. Visit Queensland Rail to view other options and see if a rail journey might be for you.
Whether you're prepared to rough it or you want a little bit of luxury, there's no shortage of options as a part of tourism Australia and Queensland. All you have to do now is come here because there are so many things to do in Queensland.
See you tomorrow!!

Queensland Australia by Colin Burnett

It's good to be home....
I have recently been living in Europe for two years and I have had a great time. There is however no place
like home....Queensland Australia. The weather, animals, beaches and people are just some of the thingsthat are unique to Queensland.
Being a proud Queenslander and Australian I am very patriotic about my home! I just miss the joint when I'm not here...... know what I'm talking about? The majority of people may move or stay in the place of their childhood and stay completely in love with that place.
I must say that I always have my homeland in my mind.
So about the sunshine state
Much of Queensland-Australia is located on the coast.
It's perhaps no surprise that many promotional campaigns about this state focus on its beaches and water-wildlife. Picture-perfect locations like Whitehaven Beach and the Great Barrier Reef certainly make for great ads!
Yet not all Queenslanders are surfers with blonde hair and great tans. (In fact, even surfers are now pretty cluey when it comes to the dangers of the Aussie sun and you're likely to see them slathered in sunscreen rather than sporting deep tans.)
Many people don't realise that Queensland-Australia is full of many other hidden wonders.
For instance, this state has a number of vibrant cities. The cities have great shopping and nightlife and you can shop and party all you want there.
The outback is a completely different experience for many people. Cattle and sheep stations dominate the regions. Quaint towns along the way are home to some of the most interesting characters you're ever likely to meet.
The Aboriginal Dreamtime is a great religion to discover in Queensland. You will be amazed by the Australian Aboriginal Dreamtime stories.
Are you planning a trip to Queensland-Australia?
Perhaps you are after some genuine advice about this popular tourist destination. For whatever reason you are here, I hope you have fun looking through these pages�.
The sunshine state will probably have you marvelling at its beauty. I guess you are thinking beaches�..
Yeah, I think about beaches too when you say Queensland�.ever heard of the Gold Goast??
It does have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is a great part of tourism Australia
Technology-savvy travellers of today find their anticipation and excitement to arrive grows when they look at pictures of the natural beauty of this place. With 5 of Australia's 11 World Natural Heritage areas located in in this state, such images are not difficult to find.
Yet I bet you guys also want information minus the marketing hype.
I bet you are sick of the high-pitched-sales sites that are all over the place.
Travellers like you I, just to know the ins and outs when cruising around this state.
We want to know what not to miss��
We normally want to know how to maximise our time here, whatever the budget.
Whether travellers are after relaxation or white-knuckle adrenalin-filled activities, they want to know where they can find information on activities.
You might also be here because you want to know about the local culture too before you arrive.
P.S. I wish you luck with your travels!!
Over and out
