No offence to downtown Ballarat, but the grey weather and grey cars seem a symbolic contrast with the vivid colours of your usual tropical haunts.

Exactly! I escape northwards., tropicalwards woth as happy cry and a song in my heart on Tuesday! Can't wait!

But -- Ballarat has a grat tourism plan and I wanted to talk with people about how they do it.

I can't think of another good reason for going there.

Well, Lola Montez did visit once! (Of course, they showered her with the local product which just happened to be GOLD!!!)

Actually, Yaelle, they had really bad weather last Friday -- it snowed! People saw it on TV and drove in droves from Melbourne on Saturday! They had a bumper tourist day in the middle of their low season. LOL!

They also have some good photography going around the place.

You can check out their website: http://visitballarat.com.au/

Then compare it with Rabaul: http://www.rabaulpng.com

And see why I live in Rabaul, not Ballarat!

Cheers, geoff
