Don't be silly! We'd HIRE the bus and the driver! EASY AS!

It all sounds delish! Plus can we organize it while there's some kind of cultural festival on? I've always wanted to go to WOMADELAIDE or whatever it's called and the FOA and Feast Festival. Any of those!

And the wine and olives and I'll even try those pie floater thingies!

Shoot for next year. Womadelaide or Feast. And I know the place for pie floaters!

..I think we should also do a tour of all the main murder sites, y'know, Snowtown, Truro, River Torrrens, the hills in general. I could do the commentary! Lets not forget the infamous kidnapping scenes of Addlebrain Oval and Glenelg..woohoo!
Now, if you want wine in Clare Valley, you hafta go to Seven Hills monastery. It's a little more interesting than yer average winery. Mini, will you plump for a night at Martindale Hall for us all?

Iam from and live in Perth, but given the choice, i think Brisbane is a more liveable city...

Brisbane would get my vote, although all offer pretty similar quality of life. Brissie has a more tropical feel, Perth a more 'beachy' feel, and Adelaide a good mix between European cosmopolitan-ness and Australian laid-backness.

Ironically, the "Darling Downs" area's climate has me frightened!

Pretty much all of Queensland seems to have an "agreeable climate" for me, aside from Darling Downs.
Darling Downs towns look colder than Sydney or Perth, surprisingly.
And what makes it cold (likely altitude) would probably make the U.V. even more intense.

Oops, make that the "Granite Belt" which is part of an area called "Southern Downs."
That's the place in Queensland that scares me.
