There is something to be said about having the chance of a lifetime to pursue your dreams- whilst doing it at a tropical location.

OK, so its haunted to the sh*t, but am completely in love.
Think I would physically only last in it for a few weeks before the spirits got me good... but if I ever won lotto, I would love to make a replica of this here in Australia!

Calls for segregation of unvaccinated children

Not accepting children without vaccines is not designed to exclude or discriminate, but simply to protect the children and teachers and also to protect those unvaccinated and therefore unprotected kids.

Although only 1.5 per cent of parents are "vaccine refusers" or conscientious objectors, many parents are simply forgetful, leaving some areas with vaccination rates below 85 per cent - despite the inarguable scientific proof that the vaccination program has saved thousands of lives and eradicated diseases that crippled children just a generation ago, including polio.

With the recent news of all the deaths by domestic violence in Australia this year (17 already), it certainly has hit a spot of anxiety in my soul perhaps from my own experiences from violent relationships. Although I don't know if you would deem me a 'victim' per se of domestic violence- as after a while I gave back as good as I got.

But I should never have had to. 

Then today the news of my friends uncle finally losing his appeal for killing his wife and child. It has been met with relief from my friends family and they can now start trying to pick up the scattered pieces of their life.

However, I can't even begin to try and explain the awful insecurity I feel all of a sudden. To have your 'soulmate'  beat the hell out of you, or plan to destroy your life is just devastating to think about.

As a female I am told not to go out by myself in public in the evenings without male company, but yet it seems that the person I should be fearing the most, is the man I share my bed with.

These are absolutely beautiful and I think this is possibly the best present any new mum could ask for. A wonderful idea from a lovely man! Congratulations on your ingenuity!

Beautifully appointed room, helpful staff and nice and warm! Gym small but has everything you need. Bath was luxurious and was great to sink into to relax after a day on the road

Brilliant experience! Its nice to have met someone who is so environmentally and socially conscious. I love the fact that for the first time ever my head hasn't felt like it was on fire as she uses non-ammonium based toners- joys sometimes of being blonde. Hairdresser Suellen is mad on David Bowie hence the "ziggy", Which, to anyone with taste, is Awesome! If you enjoy listening to classic rock and pop, having a great chat and at the same time knowing that all of the products used (including waste) are environmentaly friendly as well as Australian made- this is the place for you. Not only was the style that she did for me AMAZING, but the whole experience was fun. Top marks :)

Having a 3 year old son I called in advance to see if it would be a concern to the staff. After being reassured we spent the evening not stressing out over my son's behavior, but enjoying ourselves. The food was absolutely to die for and it is the first time ever my son ate a whole fish fillet. I had the chicken nolsey- which was tender and delicious, my partner had the Parma, which he rated highly as well. The best aspect for us was the planes flying in and out which kept my boy entertained throughout the meal, as well as the staff being smart and bringing out my son's meal when our entrée came. It was the best dining experience I have had with a 3 year old and cannot speak highly enough about the food and service. I cannot wait to go back and try a fish dish, as the fish my son had (which I managed to steal a bite from) was so fresh you could still taste the sea :) The decor is not necessarily the classiest, but what does that matter when the food is phenomenal!

No frills accommodation, comfortable beds, clean shower, quiet location, good tv. Communication was excellent- we were traveling from Melbourne with a 4 year old and (unsurprisingly) we were running late (10pm)- they ensured that the room was unlocked and warm upon our arrival. Really exceeds expectations for the price paid, great place to stop to break up a long drive.

went down and got my hair touched at the local hairdresser in Koo Wee Rup, (Australia) today- brilliant up experience! Its nice to have met someone who is so environmentally and socially conscious. I love the fact that for the first time ever my head hasn't felt like it was on fire as she uses non-ammonium based toners- joys sometimes of being blonde. Hairdresser/owner is mad on David Bowie and is renaming the salon to pay homage to her icon in the next few weeks. Which is Awesome! Other cool facts: - the whole session today was listening to bowie, spektor and other classics (Beatles, etc), none of that horrific techno guff. - she spent months fund-raising to help orphaned HIV kids in Cambodia and did a two week bike trek throughout Cambodia earlier this year. But MOST IMPORTANTLY - she is environmentally sensitive and uses recycled aluminum for foils, toners without ammonium in them and local/Australian made hair products. Not only was the style that she did for me AMAZING, but the whole experience was fun. Top marks :)
