We all know the wait in he Emergency department can often be a long one.

Well today, the State Government will open a specialised Urgent Care clinic at Royal Perth Hospital to treat drug and alcohol affected patients.

Which it's hopes will ease pressure on the emergency department.


Comment on Facebook

As an aging hospital...I don’t know why the entire freo hospital isn’t turned into a drug, alcohol and mental health clinic??? Just parts of it are used now since Fiona Stanley opened.

Good job...about time. There also needs to be a geriatric hospital in Perth, the health service needs to look after the people who are keeping the country ticking over..without them we would all be screwed.

Long over due but why put people with mental health issues in with drug and alcohol effected people. Many people who have not got alcohol or drug induced mental illness. 😣 could be a disaster in some cases to put someone with depression or anxiety issues in this new emergency clinic.

'Order and Discipline are the very foundation stones of a healthy society'. I don't know who's words they are but I've believed them all my life. You want to put druggos and drunks in front of hard working, civil, caring and educated people? Then I hope you've got a bit of muscle on hand and each with a Taser on their belt and all completely immune from ridiculous PC restraints. How many people have been to Emergency in great discomfort or distress, only to have an out of control 'knuckle dragger' there to make their lives even more miserable? Lots.

Nothing beats a back rub after a long day at work 😌

JJ Emerson spotted this pair of kangaroos in the Coombabah Lakes Conservation Area in the Destination Gold Coast. He said usually in this spot the roos are just grazing, with a few young males doing a bit of sparring. Apparently, one of them started to have a scratch, and the other one took it as a challenge which resulted in a "bit of a spar!" (Photo: JJ Emerson)

Located just a short drive north of the Destination Gold Coast CBD, the Coombabah Lakes Conservation Area is chock-a-block with wildlife. JJ Emerson usually comes to this spot to watch the roos, but he says "it's also awesome to see koalas". In fact, this lovely wetland area is home to 274 species of animals, including koalas, wallabies, kangaroos and flying foxes, along with 24 internationally protected migratory bird species. (Photo: JJ Emerson)

Oh yes! Only they weren’t giving each other a back rub! 😂

Now, a lil to the left, up and bit, ahhhh yes that's the spot, darn I forgot to add dencorub, too. keep it up, this feels good..

Or if no one is around to give you a scratch, do it yourself 😂

Monday morning traffic is looking pretty heavy in Port Stephens 🐬🐬🐬

Video: Dolphin Swim Australia in Visit NSW


Comment on Facebook

Regarded as Australia's dolphin capital, Port Stephens, which is located a 2.5-hour drive north of and is home to a remarkable dolphin encounter. Most swim-with-dolphin experiences involve floating in the ocean and waiting in a stationary position until the dolphins approach you, but with Dolphin Swim Australia swimmers are pulled slowly alongside the dolphins. Participants are attached to a harness and clipped to a tow rope between the twin bows of a catamaran. As the dolphins move playfully through the water, you effectively swim in time with them. Photo: Dolphin Swim Australia

My dream some day...Iam in my sixties...but I can still dream .....someday to swim with the dolphins...what an intelligent mammal....even to pet one I’d be happy....

Will add to my next to-do for Australia!!!

I’ve done this - it’s amazing 🐬

I will do this around christmas-time ;) 🎅

Oh my, what an epic video! Absolutely beautiful 🐬

We seen some cuties at Bribie yesterday afternoon. Soooo adorable, everyone was loving them

We’ve had holidays in Pt. Stevens twice, beautiful

So True. ....beautiful experience having dolphins swim Next to you!❤

Traffic is heavy indeed, but no one seems to be in any hurry ;)

Time to come clean. Who didn’t know it snowed in Australia? ❄️

Many of the higher altitude areas of Discover Tasmania were blanketed in powder-white flakes after a recent autumn snowfall, creating some beautiful photo opportunities like this frosty forest track. What a feast for the eyes! Photo: Cam Blake Photography

Winter has arrived a tad early in Discover Tasmania, by the looks of things! Cam Blake Photography captured these stunning shots in Discover Tasmania's Mount Field National Park near Hobart & Beyond, which experienced an autumn snowfall a couple of weeks ago.

Up at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains in June, you will get lots of snow. The British people living here have a 2nd Christmas every year, mainly for the kids, big fireplaces, Sleigh rides, Santa, great time for all.

Saw my first snow in Tasmania in October 1966 when we moved to Storeys Creek, on the side of Ben Lomond. Burnt the toast looking out the kitchen window at the falling snow and the pristine backyard....a real experience for a girl from the out back. Loved Tassie.Thank you for that pic..quite reminiscent of the track down the mountain which we had to conquer to get to Avoca and on to other places.

This is beautiful really...I can imagine how sweet it would be going through this path and having some beautiful photos as such

Of course it snows in Australia! Always wanted to check out Perisher!

I knew it did I studied Australia in the early 60's when we though about moving there. :)

There you go, driving to work last year.

Yes I did know, because we see it every year. 😊❄⛄

I did not know. Cannot wait to visit Australia one day. Looks beautiful, i love snow.

Mount Wellington on Tasmania, went there in 1986 and couldn't see a foot in front of my face!

We even have ski resorts! Amazing right?

Had no clue. Interest fact. Learn something new every day!

I think you have your winter while we in North America has summer. We went from winter to summer this month.

A few years ago on the way to my parents property

It snowed when we were there in October but it’s still amazing place to go or live

Learn to ski in Thredbo, instructors are much more patient and encouraging than in France, especially with an elderly (50++) beginner.

and yet, coming up to 65 years, I've still never seen snow...

Never been there, but pretty sure i'd perfer an Australian winter over a Canadian one.

Jon Warnholtz not what you normally connect Australia to!

austrlia is amazing whether it's snow or not 👍❤️

Aww I love snow!

My Mom went skiing when she was growing up in Australia.

Me, I didn't know it snowed in Australia.

I’ve seen the snow only twice in my life in Oberon, NSW and on Mt Wellington in Hobart, Tasmania.

Wow!...........another one for my bucket list!!

Personally, I find his action disgusting. He is driving an exhaust polluting machine along the riparian zone of the ocean.How immature!

Lavanya Kanagaratnam been here yet?

13 seconds in... BOOM! 😱

It's not an unusual sight to see fur seals hanging out at Narooma like this, given that nearby Montague Island is home to a huge colony of these cheeky creatures, as well as thousands of little penguins! (Photo: @edgar_pacific_photography via IG in Eurobodalla - South Coast NSW)

Visitors can actually join a guided tour to safely swim, snorkel or dive with hundreds of these fur seals in the crystal clear waters of Montague Island. There's a number of operators in Eurobodalla - South Coast NSW that offer this experience, including Underwater Safaris Narooma (who snapped this amazing photo!)

This guy also waits near the boardwalk and steals your catch. He took my fish did a tailflip and was off again. He's one cheeky seal.

Fisherman was probably bummed about the one that got away. "Yeah, a seal beat me to it, but it was THIS BIG, I swear!"

We are so privileged to have this wildlife on our doorstep, very special. Who gets the fish today at Narooma jetty - Mr Ray or Sammy seal? #oakleighfarmcottages #meetthelocals #unspoilt #narooma

Omg I love this beach we go here all the time the seals always sit and sleep on the rocks never seen them this close before thanks for sharing

Ha ha mister. This is my fish and off I go with it!! Love it when it jumps up and shows it iff😊. Neat video!!

Seeing moments like these makes me want to return to Australia 😍 Nathalie Reyes

Amazing fishing at Narooma just ask or watch the locals #unspoilt #Eurobodalla #VisitTilba

Would have loved to have been there awesome 🐬🐬🐬

Much more efficient than the guy with his fishing line, it seems. LOL

Now that's how you catch a fish :)

I will love to visit Australia someday and maybe view this beautiful beach

Wow, super to watch, they can really go fast.

I would of loved to been there

Ceile Day this is why you should come to Australia!

This 18-hole Great Golf Courses of Australia course in Western Australia is a bit different from your usual golf course; lush green fairways are surrounded by deep red sand which creates quite a striking contrast. It's also known for its resident kangaroo population who love to spectate as you tee off. Better brush up on that swing! Photo: @cityofkalgoorlieboulder (via IG)

Kalgoorlie Golf Course is located in the famous outback mining town of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. It was designed by top course designer Graham Marsh and is ranked number 18 in Australia’s top 100 public access golf courses. Photo: Kalgoorlie Golf Course

My lovely granddaughter is teaching in Kalgoorlie and loves it love you my darling xxx

Reminds me of the near sighted Japanese tourist complaining to the Pro at Merimbula Golf Club about the slow players on the 10th green. Turned out to be a family of kangaroos.
