wedding in australia

by blonid

Hi Folks
We live in the UK and have decided to marry in Australia. We are planning our trip for end of march ro April in 2011. We are looking at whitsundays (lovers cove) and stradbroke island. It will only be the 2 of us so somewhere romantic where we can have a service and then a nice meal. I like the idea of a beach but am open to all options! So any feedback and advice would be excellent to assist us in our plans as neither of us know where to start!

Both of your suggestions are lovely and would make good venues for your wedding. Do be sure however, to check on the laws for weddings in a different country. It would be such a shame to make all your long distance plans only to find that the legalities had been overlooked. Good luck!

Perhaps ring the Australian Embassy as there is a quantity of paperwork to be done and I doubt very much if visitors can get married without the formalities - that is why Las vegas is so popular for weddings, there are no legal issues at all!

If you want to have a look at the Lady Elliot Island website I know for a fact that they do weddings as my sister in law was married there ,It is in the Barrier reef marine Park . Look on the website tool bar under Explore then under weddings then on the right hand side under news and you will see the story and photos for Roslyn and Kens wedding.They were married there on 6th Feb 2007 It was just the two of them with the civil celebrant they took over for the ceremony. Resort staff and guests were asked to take the photos and witness the occasion .They did not want a big wedding or any fuss and they said it was perfect. We all saw the photos and it looked beautiful .Apparently theirs was the first weeding on the Island ,Anyway check it out it might be worth a look .Roslyn and Ken took their flowers and other things with them to cut down costs and stayed on the island for their honeymoon .

If you like a private and countryside wedding, look no further than getting married in Mount Tamborine, Gold Coast(Australia). The breathtaking views of valleys, mountain ranges and coastal shores creates beautiful surrounds will make a perfect wedding and a wonderful and memorable experience. All the best for your wedding!

What about Lord Howe Island?

We are travelling there on Saturday. Apparently its really popular for weddings and less likely to be influenced by the cyclone season up north. If you love the outdoors, hiking, snorkelling, swimming (no stingers and no sandflies)romantic picnics, etc I think it would be a great destination. Will know more after we have our week there. But have a look at the link I've given you.

Travel Tips for Brisbane

Sunset in 14th Street Brisbane.

by Jerelis

We only stayed for one day in Brisbane and we completely worn off a pair of shoes :-) Just hiking everywhere and hoping to catch it all. Of course it's a mission impossible, but also a challange!

When we drove home we drove over 14th Street and in my back mirror I saw this amazing sunset. Time to pull the car over and make this beautiful picture.

Hope you enjoy it ...

Many travelers say that...

by mocca

Many travelers say that Brisbane is a boring city, and if you are travelinng and been to Sydney, Melbourne, gold coast and all, and you arrive there, well it does seem that way. But if you stay a bit longer and get to know the city, it has lot to offer.
With the centre being smaller than Sydneys and Melbournes, you can see everything quickly and easy, or take your time to see it all.
There are many crafts markets, museums, fantastic botanical gardens. Take a ride on the Brisbane river, it shows you most of the city and surroundings and it is an easy relaxing getaway. You can do it during the day or during night.

For 10days on the second Thursday of August each year, Brisbane holds its Annual Show, called the 'EKKA'

Its a festival of fun for people of all ages, with some 600,000 people visiting each year.
The Ekka is where country and city join to celebrate the great lifestyle, industries and rich heritage of Queensland.

There are stacks of sights to see at the Ekka while you stroll around the huge 22 hectare showgrounds.
Performing artists roam the area, ready to entertain!
You will come across shearing demonstrations and food showdowns, cattle judging and fireworks displays, scavenger hunts and belly dancing displays, circus performers, dancers, bands, celebrities, extreme rides, and probably a lot more I can't think of.

The hundreds of pavilions include, animal nurseries, automotive vehicles, Australian-made products, agricultural displays, fashion parades, international food and much more!

One of the most sought after Ekka attractions is the Showbags. These bags of goodies range from approximately $2 to $128 featuring a huge selection of different products! These are very popular with the children. the 22 hectare RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane City
The best way to avoid parking hassles during the Ekka is to use public transport. There are special train services that drop patrons to the centre of RNA showgrounds and a number of buses that shuttle to and from the event.

Admission varies from year to year, check the local papers, Television, or website.

Alma Park Zoo

by thedouglas

This great open zoo is located 30kms or so up the Bruce Highway, towards the Sunshine Coast. Set on 20 acres of landscaped parkland, the zoo has been here for more than 30 years. It was initially a native animal sanctuary in the 60's, and then registered as a zoo in the 70's, with the arrival of international animals. It has been family owned since the early 80's, and is run as a very personal project by this animal loving family, constantly seeking to improve the range of animals they care for, and their living conditions.

Look for the big brown zoo sign at the Boundary Road exit and follow the signs 2 Km to the Zoo. A family ticket is $62.

You can park your car internally, so that access to the vehicle is easy. There is a cafe serving light lunch food and tea/coffee and cake, but you can also bring your own picnic or barbeque lunch to enjoy in the grounds of the zoo. There are plenty of tables and oodles of grassy space for sitting and enjoying lunch on rug - or just soaking up the setting.

Your only cost can therefore be entry to the zoo, but you can buy animal feed at the entrance or cafe for $3.00 per bag or 2 bags for $5.00. This is the only food you are permitted to give the animals, for obvious reasons. A feature of a day at the zoo is the animal animal feeding, for Bears, Squirrel Monkeys and Koalas, with morning and afternoon sessions. These are great fun, and are accompanied by informative and educational talks by staff.

You can touch and feed many of the animals including the koalas and deer. Another feature for the kids in particular, is the Friendship Farm, where there are a range of farm animals to feed and interact with.
