Welcome to the DOWNunder UPdate Newsletter from the Australia site at Bellaonline Ė The Voice of Women.
We are enjoying a very pleasant autumn here at present and for those Aussies that live in the southern states, the autumn leaves are putting on a great show this year. Unfortunately those who live in the north miss out on this change of seasons completely, and I for one am sorry that we donít experience the great colours of the season, here in Brisbane.
Last week I wrote an article on the Great Barrier Reef Ė in particular snorkelling on the reef. I had the wonderful pleasure of being able to do just that a number of years ago, and can thoroughly recommend it. Hereís the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art64245.asp
