    A silly question... We can find out why a World Heritage designation is allocated, but what about each of our National Parks? Travelling all over, I'd love to know if a list exists to tell us why each & everyone of our Aussie National Parks has been made a National Park. I assume each would...

    Any compact jack recommendations for a 78 Series ?

    Have just busted my standard Toyota bottle jack, 50km north of Broken Hill. Easy sealed road, & had just pulled off to check a Telstra signal. Anyway, VERY disappointed with the cast eyelet breaking off when trying to change a rear tyre - & if I hadn't a Hi Lift on-board, would have been...

    Information on Cape Arid, Thomas Fishery

    Greetings all, A Melbourne-based writer, I am seeking any photographs of the single grave & headstone @ the old Hill Springs homestead. It's been many years since I've visited the area, & even then did not see the gravesite. I'm most interested in the headstone, but am unsure weather it...
