Local tourism

NEWS -- Branded content for local tourism - The Australian
http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/st ... 82,00.html
Tourism Australia is focused on changing attitudes to local holidays and increasing the 10.25 per cent of budgets households spend on domestic travel. That figure has fallen from 12.5per cent in 1998 because Australians are holidaying overseas or stockpiling their leave.

Lots of images from the Alpine National Park - yes we do have snow!

My favourite climbing areas in the world - the Grampians/ Gariwerd and Mt Arapiles/ Durjite on the Western Plains in the Wimmera region.

The coastline I grew up on, 2 hours south of Melbourne - the world famous Surfcoast and Great Ocean Road

Enjoy
