    Visitor Information Centre: Australian Gifts

    by balhannah Written Jun 15, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    St. George Visitor Information centre had a good array of Australian gifts.

    What I liked, was once again, I found gifts that I had not seen elsewhere. A different gift, and cheap, was cards with Waltzing Matilda written on them, and a nice painted Australian scene.
    Lots of ideas for lightweight gifts for getting back home without paying excess baggage!
