Hi everyone, itís that time of the week when the DOWNunder UPdate comes to you from the Australia site at Bellaonline Ė The Voice of Women.
This country is very diverse in its climate, geography and culture and thereís so much to tell you about. Iíve only been writing for the Australia site since Christmas, and am developing a plan for bringing you as much information as possible in a relaxed and organised way.
Last week I posted the second last article on Climates experienced in each of the 6 states and 2 territories. Tasmania and its capital city Hobart were highlighted in last weeks article and the final ones, on Northern Territory and The Australian Capital Territory will come in the next few weeks.
Hereís the link to the Tasmanian and Hobart Climate article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art33268.asp
