Yo!! Aussie Nurses!!!

  1. hey y'all!!! my hubby and i are planning exotic vacation #5, and want to go to australia for a couple of weeks next year.

    i know your seasons are reversed there, so what's the weather like in, oh, say july? is that like april in the states?

    he and i loooooooooooove scuba/snorkeling, and it is my
    fantasy to snorkel/scuba on the great barrier reef!!!

    i know so little about your country other than the obvious 'touristy' stuff like sydney and the reef.....can you please educate a po' ignunt southern belle and make some suggestions as to where to go in your lovely country??

    thanks!!!

    YO SHAY me old mate!!

    Come on down my friend...great place to holiday if I say so myself lol

    July is in our winter season but it does depend where you go. The Queensland states have a much milder winter and the further north you go the warmer you get. Once you are up around Townsville/Cairns area the winter temperatures are actually like the summer weather in the more southern areas, like Melbourne. Great Barrier Reef lies off the coast of Queensland so from what you say is the place to go.

    By next month i will be living in Queensland so you are more than welcome to come stay with us. Great lifestyle. I will be in a major city but you can use it as a starting or stopping off place.

    Oh and hey Rusty...we don't bite
