Cause me and my family are coming to visit #;D ;D

Yep thats right. From Feb 1st (tues) to the 4th (fri) my lovely wife, bub and I will be drinking your beer and generally making a nuisance of ourselves. :) These dates may be changed a bit in time so that it falls across a weekend so that I can go fishing ;)

On a serious note, can anyone suggest "must do's" or "must see's" for when we are up there?

Alex - simple plan for the must do. Sink copious amounts of booze. Join us for a mission to one of our local watering holes(Jeff....whatta ya reckon....take him to the Alex? ;)). Might even be kind enough to take you for a royal cruise around some of the better parts of God's Country. Oh, and I guess we could have a fish sometime too. Rob?

It will be good to have you up this way. (I think).
Orminston is near here so I will be able to smell a cockaroach in the area.

Maybe we can turn on a bit the Famous Queensland sunshine and weather for ya. But be warned, it'll be bloody hot that time of year.

So, where ever ya staying, tune in the air-con.

So, where ever ya visit, tune in the air-con.

So, where ever ya drinking, tune in the air-con.

So, where ever ya &^%ing, tune in the WebCam ! :o

A trip to Peel island/ Horseshoe bay/ maybe the 1 Mile, little ships club, Tanga's or Nth Straddie Hotel, sounds like the go.

mmmmmm Nth Straddie hotel, deck overlooking to briney, Sunday arvo, beer and barmaids. mmm Food for thought there Alex.

Yes Ben, it does sound good.

Onya Phill...love it when someone keeps pushing the air cond line..keeps me in business. Come to think of it..any pub overlooking the briney or good beach scenery is hard to pass.

When I started this thread asking for ideas I thought i would get suggestions like.... Brisbane museum, State library and even the art gallery.

All thats been suggested is drink beer and fish. ;D ;D ;D

Sounds like my idea of visiting a far off land.

I am sure at some stage a session at a brew house will be in order so hope to meet some of you there.

mate...the museum probably has some fish skeletons...the library would have some books on brewing beer and the art gallery..I am not sophisticated enough to have ever been there. Besides...what else is there in life but to drink beer (and green ginger wine) and go fishing.

A bit of Qld culture 4 ya Alex ;D ;D ;D ;D

17-01-2005, 06:47 PM

18-01-2005, 04:49 AM

make sure you change your money to Queensland money at the bank before you get here ;D ;D .
your choice of location is close to the bay a cast or 2 away in the redland shire you are close to the barge to straddie at cleveland send the wife to the markets at cleveland while you can fish at the point or wait for her the sands pub . tosee the greater brissie area you need a week or two or if the fishing is good [smiley=smug.gif] [smiley=smug.gif]
