Eight countries where most visitors miss the best attraction

Eight countries where most visitors miss the best attraction



2018-05-16T13:00:03+0000

Germany is best known for its beer, but it should be known for Berlin. The US is most loved for Los Angeles and New York City, but its national parks are sorely overlooked. Where else is the main attraction not really the country’s true gem? – via Traveller

Travellers can sometimes miss the true highlight of a country.

Pauline wants a coal powered station built in Queensland 🤪

How horrible that Clive Palmer can return after destroying all his loyal workers lives, when not giving them their entitlements.....

That fool should not be allowed to build a sand castle on a beach.

Never bloody happy until they are destroying beautiful things.

Clive Palmer has proven that he is not capable of running a chook raffle, let alone this monstrosity.

Clive couldn’t build a cubby house unless he got government funding😂😂😂

Why isn't he is gaol yet? Whoops, forgot, he's rich.

You know it will go broke in no time.

No more coal or pies for you Clive, didn't your mother teach you; don't be greedy!

So is Palmer going to need external finance for this monstrosity? If so let's hope the banks treat him the same ad Adani and refuse finance.

expose the fool

No way!!

Why is this man not in jail?

As the Libs and Murdoch hate Palmer he probably wont get away with this . But they are quite happy supporting Adani .. .

His dream our living nightmare.No thanks.

Has he paid the workers he ripped off from his other company yet?

That's probs why he commissions heaps of sick memes on fb, so he can slide under the radar with this shit but have everyone on the internet think he's great because memes. Boourns.

How about we do not build any more mines?!

Is he planning on swimming in it then ?

Jerk! 😡

Jobs for all Clive bring it on.

Tell these two destroyers where to go.

a great Australian and major poet!

Oh yes and he's such a reliable and trustworthy person hey cuzies

Meet Jan, Ronnie and Mary, three of our wonderful Airport Ambassadors. For millions of travellers each year, they are the face of Sydney. For Jan, being an Ambassador is about "helping people and presenting a smiling face and making them feel at home."

Thank you to our ambassadors who don the familiar blue jackets and a warm smile to help arriving and departing locals and visitors at the airport. #NationalVolunteersWeek

WIND FORECAST

The Approaching front is going to pack a decent punch in the way of wind. Bom has said Severe weather warnings may be in place later in the week.

Below thanks to earth.nullschool.net is the wind forecast for Thursday at 11.00 pm sitting around the 77kmh mark but we can expect gusts above this!

As the front moves inland these winds will ease but we would expect decent gusts to around the 60kmh through the wheatbelt.

Please make sure all loose items in your yards are tidied up and trampolines tied down.
