wedding gift

by magc

Does anyone know of a good department store where we could buy gift tokens for some relations who are getting married in July ? Maggie Childs Newcastle on Tyne UK

Re: wedding gift

by Bosscreature

Hi....Myers is probably the best. It is a large department store with a couple of stores in the suburbs and its main store in Melbourne. There are also branches in a few country centres.

Or try David Jones - they do a lot of Wedding gifts. There are online stores like Peter of Kensingtons in Sydney. Do they not have a gift list somewhere?

Another large retail outlet is Harvey Norman. Not quite as upmarket as Myer or David Jones but they stock lots of furniture and electrical goods, from computers to air conditioners.
Here are a few more names, worth a search with google:- Dick Smith Electrical, Fantastic Furniture, K-Mart (mock not, they have some good stuff at reasonable prices), Bunnings. I could go on but you should have enough choice there :-)

Hi Maggie
You can order gift vouchers on line from the Ikea store in Perth Western Australia (they are the only Ikea store in Australia that has a home shopping service) and they will send it registered post to your relations in Geelong. It can be used at the Ikea store in Richmond (a suburb of Melbourne).

Travel Tips for Geelong

Geelong, Bollards along the Bollard Walk

by cassiejoy42

As our city is situated on the Corio Bay, it would be hard to say which is more of a central point - the Corio Bay or the City of Greater Geelong.

One thing is for sure, when visitors do come to our city the first destination to visit is the waterfront. Today (Wednesday 19th October) I trekked around the Corio Bay, taking photos of the Corio Bay and Geelong's skyline from different angles.

Some of our more famous landmarks are:
The Shell Refinery (when I was little I used to think that the lights of Shell were fairyland)
the Mercure Hotel
St Mary's Cathedral
and Cunningham Pier.

Of course our Bollards are becoming more well known and are becoming landmarks themselves. My fondest memory of Geelong would be when I went to Primary School. We lived out of Geelong in a small town called Mount Duneed, not far from Torquay. My happiest days were spent at Mount Duneed Primary School. When I went to Mount Duneed PS it was on the Torquay highway. Now it has been shifted to Mount Duneed Road - I haven't been to see it since it got shifted.

Geelong Victoria is the States...

by ombre

Geelong Victoria is the States second biggest city behind Melbourne and is roughly an hour or so drive from Melbourne or less if you drive like my girlfriend does(ha ha)(just had to change that to my wife )
Geelong has a population of about 120,000 and has a host of shops ,bars pubs night clubs ect.
just out side of geelong Lies some of our states best small coastal towns many with in 30 mins drive .
places such as queenscliff and torquy and also the famous bells beach.
other towns Such as Lorne are very very popular and I can give you my word are all worth seeing if you happen to venture to this side of Victoria.
In Geelong if your not married to your brother or sister you are not normal and you must own 5 pairs of tracky dacks . Lorne is basically the start of the great ocean road said to be one of the most senic roads
in the world
Having spoken to people who have traveled all over Australia and the world for that matter all without exception have rated the Great Ocean Road as a brillant coastal drive with breath tacking views .
This pic of the great ocean road must be one of the most photographed places in Victoria .
In color the area is amazing hope this teases you enough to want to see it for yourself

Currency

by Marpessa

Australian currency is in dollars ($AUD). There are 100 cents to a dollar. We have 5, 10, 20 and 50 cent pieces (coins), which are silver, 1 and 2 dollar coins, which are gold.

We also have 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar notes. Each note is a distinctively different colour and they each have a 'clear window' in the notes. "Australia was the first country in the world to have a complete system of bank notes based on plastic (polymer). These notes provide much greater security against counterfeiting. They also last four times as long as conventional paper (fibrous) notes." (taken from: www.dfat.gov.au/facts/currency.html)

For more information - like who are the people on the notes see the website above.

Loch Arch at low tide, this...

by RamSter

Loch Arch at low tide, this was quiet recently formulated, there were a few people sleeping on the arch which was connected to the land ,the next morning they were trapped on the arch which was somehow seperated from the land, and a helicopter had to get them, quiet a story huh?

Visiting Friends

by Marpessa

I realised recently that while visiting some friends in Scandinavian countries that you take your shoes off when entering their home.

So I thought maybe I should do a similar tip here, because it is different in Australia. When entering someones house you will (most of the time) leave your shoes on, unless of course your shoes are dirty (with mud or something on them). Although there are some people who will prefer you to take your shoes off, but you will be able to tell if you have to remove your shoes by a) if your host does so, or b) if there are shoes around the front door (either inside or outside the house).

But as I said, majority of people (at least in Geelong) leave their shoes on when entering their house.
