Dear Friends, Did you know Becky’s been hosting a party all month? No? Neither did I until my personal assistant, Mrs ET, let it slip the other day.

Dear Friends, After visiting Walkabout Creek Hotel, I was inspired to take up a new career as a crocodile hunter. Mick Dundee makes it look so easy in the movie. First I had to find some crocodiles. Even though there were plenty of warning signs, I didn’t spot a single croc until I got to …

Crocodile Rock Part 1

Dear Friends, Have you seen the movie “Crocodile Dundee”? It’s one of my all time favourites. That man is so cool, calm and collected – a lot like me actually.  I wanted to walk in the footsteps of Mick Dundee, so I called into the Walkabout Creek Hotel at McKinlay in outback Queensland. Just like …

Come Fly With Me

Dear Friends, You know how much I love doing work experience. It’s great fun to walk in someone else’s shoes for a day. When I went flying with Sam from Kingfisher Tours at Kununurra, I thought my secret ambition to be a pilot was about to be fulfilled. We were going to fly this six …

Bananarama

Dear Friends, Have you ever seen something that is larger than life and been a little disappointed? Do you remember when I went to the Big Banana hoping to find the biggest banana split on record, only to have my dreams dashed? It was a sad day. Thankfully my belief in bananas has been restored – …
