March 29 2012 Australia Newsletter


Hi everyone, itís that time for the DOWNunder UPdate Newsletter from Bellaonline. Iíve been away for the past three weeks, travelling 2,000km in a round trip from Brisbane in Queensland to Mt Kosciusko (Australiaís tallest Mountain); where we trekked to the summit, then onto the eastern seaboard where we meandered north, back to Brisbane.

With the wonders of technology, I have been able to continue with my writing and newsletters for the Australia site, and Iíve got lots to pass onto you following our recent travels. To that end, I will be writing a number of articles that cover my experiences, together with photos and links to interesting stuff that we discovered along the way. Iíll keep you posted about those articles through this weekly newsletter.

Last Sunday I posted my first fun Aussie cultural piece Ė on the wonderful poem titled ďThe Dying StockmanĒ. We learnt this poem in primary school and it has remained one of my favourites. Hereís the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art15337.asp

The forum has been very chatty in my absence and please donít think I havenít been interested. I was unable to access the forum whilst I was travelling. Iíll be endeavouring to add my say asap. Hereís the forum: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/forums/315/1/Australia

As usual, here are the links to the three major newspapers in Australia for the latest news and information:
