Welcome Publicbar,
Ignore Willow, as you know they are pests in OZ, we cut them down as much as we can.
To compare Melbourne & Adelaide....he must have been drinking Murray River Water.

Welcome Publicbar,
Look up north, south, east and west. You never know where you'll end up. I hail from Cairns FNQ, currently in NZ.

Good luck and hope you find what you are looking for!

I lived in Melbourne and around Melbourne for many years.... but you probably don't know the area very well because..... well it was Melbourne, Florida! Sister Cities but great sailing year around.

In a few days I'll be heading down to the Caribbean,..... well after all Someone Has to Do it.....

We run across lots of Aussies in the British Virgin Islands, some call it their full time home now. If you ever get over this way give us a shout and I'll connect you with a few... but note... they don't seem to know how to make a beer last for an hour.
I prefer a sailboat to a motorboat, and it is my belief that boat sailing is a finer, more difficult, and sturdier art than running a motor.
