G'day, Mageeka,
There is no choice!!!!! Melbourne it is.

                                         Fulton.
Stick to Ireland and Britain, Australia has weak beer, the weathers too warm, Loads of flies and whingeing  POMs
What has the British Isles, 4 lovely Seasons, crackin beer, oh and I forgot Her Majesty has got Australia as well.
Don't forget what a POM really is, PRISONER of the MOTHERLAND, they're still down there and boy do they whinge. ;D ;D ;D

Hendy, I take it thay you are just having a bit of the craic and so I won't take your sweeping statements too seriously, however in relation to your claim that Australia has weak beer; what Australian brand of beer are you referring to and what Australian beers have you tasted?

hi irishpost! do you ever get anyware near Brisbane,my brother lives

G'day Andy, sorry mate, I live in Victoria and rarely get to Queensland.

Cheers.

Here in OZ we have some great beers, Hahn, Crown Lager, Coopers pale ale to name a few. We also have a few duds Fosters, made for the export market as no one here drinks it and in WA Emu bitter, I've never been that desperate for a beer to try it. :)

Been following this thread for a while. .I live in Paradise (with a capital C).   We live in amongst the crocs North of Cairns where the beer is strong and weemen are weemen.  Where if you have to close the windows for more than two weeks then it has been a severe Winter and where the heat from an electric light bulb would keep you warm.

Just come back from Ireland and U.K. and there is some really nice brew here.  Coopers is delightful and James Boag is as good as any.  Weather is better...much better here  ....except it seems in Perth.

What are you looking for new members for ?

Talking of Fosters,  ;)

My two favourite brews are from Tasmania, Cascade and Boags, however, I'm a great believer in the saying that when in Rome drink what the Roman's drink and so when I visit say Queensland, then I will drink XXXX :).

Do you know the reason why Queenslander's named their beer XXXX?  - because they couldn't spell Beer. ;D

Cheers.

The stout's not bad either. I drink a lot of Abbot's Invalid. There used to be a good brew in QLD named Toohey's Oatmeal, but I don't think it's made anymore.

Neither do the N.Z. players.....two of them just racked a bar bill of 31,000 pounds two days ago.  If you can find out what it was you can buy me a glass because I certainly couldn't afford it.  However I think that the damage to the B.M.W. might cost more.    Isn't it sad :( ???

A friend was visiting in Australia, he had the time of his life.

No matter were he went in mixed company, the " MEN " tended to stay together ( neglecting the wimmin' ) so he had great fun with the wimmin.

Do you guys down under not like wimmin', or do you treat them the way Muslims treat their wimmin' ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

He did say that the sheep were pretty. ;)

An Aussie farmer was sitting on his porch with his dog when a backpacker strolled passed. "Do you mind if I talk to your dog" the backpacker asked, "work away cobber" the farmer replied, "his name is Bruce"
"Hello Bruce are you well looked after here"?
"Yeh" replied the dog, "Fed twice a day and loads of free space to roam about"
The farmers mouth opened wide in amazement, "strewth mate how did ya do that".
"Do you mind if I ask your horse a few questions" the backpacker asked.
"Jeez mate, go ahead, ask away" said the farmer.
"Hello big fella are you well looked after"?  he asked the horse.
"Couldn't be better, loads of exercise, lovely stable and all the oats I can manage.
The farmer still amazed "Jeez mate that's fantastic" he says.
"Do you mind if I talk to your sheep"  the backpacker inquires.
The farmer looks back at him and ponders, "No mate, that would be a no goer, those sheep are lying bas***ds"

The seven dwarfs went off to work in the mine one day, while Snow White stayed at home to do the housework and cook their lunch.

However when she went to the mine to deliver their lunches, she found there had been a cave-in, and there was no sign of the dwarfs.

Tearfully she yelled in to the mine entrance:"hello - is anyone there. Can anyone hear me".

A voice floated up from the bowels of the mine:
" Australia will win the Rugby World Cup"

"Thank god" said Snow White "at least Dopey's still alive"
