When requesting the location of a toilet, try uttering: "Where's the Dunny?"


At the university we saw a small whirly-whirly, a mini tornado. A spiral of dust, with litter and carrier bags going right up into the sky. 

The Coriolis effect does not determine the direction in which bathtubs or toilets drain. (One direction in the Northern Hemisphere, and in the other direction in the Southern Hemisphere.) See Simpsons episode, Bart Vs. Australia.


Twin City Motor innPlonkTwinned with Albury is Wodonga. (Albury is in New South Wales, the Wodonga in Victoria.) As there is rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne, and the two states, so there is between the two towns.

Melbourne is busy this weekend - so no point rushing there. (G20 summit and the 50th anniversary of Olympics held there.)
