PinkEnvy :

sry for postn another question jst like this but i cant find anything in this i just need some traditions that go on in queensland,australia and in New South Whales. And if besides english, anyother languages are spoken THANKS

girln2sports :
"I am sure there are aborignals that live in Australia and I am sure they have their own language. But if your asking what that is I am not sure. I would think it would vary with different aboriginal tribes."
Katie L :

WOOO HOOOO Queensland won state of origin 2 we have won the origin series lets try 4 three games (good on u Queensland) points for the person who can best desribe how much queensland means to you and how u felt when we won the origin 2 game tonight! look forward 2 hearing the answers

SuperGirl :
"tonight's game was so good...that's basically all i really have to say cos i'm not really going for the points, i just wanted to say - go marooonns :)"
rumple1235 :
"That was fantastic game, even though the ref was clearly favouring the blues! Well done to the boys!!! The only good performances for the blues were from Stewart and Mason!"
renclrk :
"Wore maroon all day today....copped heaps from the "you've never won at telstra" blue jumpers What can you say? If your from Queensland it counts!!!!! There is no better feeling than come origin3 - win or lose our boys will take that shield in front of a crowd ....unlike the crowd beating the traffic home south of the border"
They Call Me Brooooooooce :
"how much qld means to me about the same as hitting a cane toad in the head with a golf club"
Cherieh :
"Great Game!! - but yes as someone else mentioned i think the ref was favouring NSW just a little bit. Ok - now you're going to hate me!! I live in Qld but i'm a blue's supporter thru & thru! Go the blues for next year!!!"
jo_funk :
"Yes you're totally right, the ref was favouring the blues even though QLD scored the winning try from a blatant forward pass?"
qldtallman :
"Qld is a reasonable place to live, although there sure are a lot of, well...not terribly clever looking people about. The winter weather is good, the summer weather is god awful. Qld is honestly a good place to visit and check out for a few years the Barrier Reef is THE most amazing place to visit in the whole world, anyone who has seen it on a good day wouldnt argue, but Id rather live in NSW or VIC long term. State of Origin? Who cares? Rugby league is a boring game played by meatheads, football is much more enjoyable to watch. You can more readily identify with the players as they are not all brain dead 16 stone oafs. The Socceroos will have the whole nation behind them at the Asian Cup. Sorry if that answer has rained on your parade."
turtles :
"unfortunaly its true...u guys do rock :'( wat more can i say? lol oh well, i guess we'll see u next year :D"
desikawa :

I have been out of Australia for nearly 2 years. My Queensland license expires December 10th. I am going back to Australia December 18th. Is it somehow possible to renew without going to Queensland Transport. Nobody is responding to my emails there. I tried calling but am always put on hold for too long and its vey expensive from o/s.

waltzsingmatilda2 :
"Hi,in NSW it can be done. You are required to sign a "Statuary" deceleration signed by a JP along with a Photo and a note to inform the QLS transport that you are on leave from Australia for a period. Waltz."
Minerva :
"i dont think it matters if you renew it that soon after it expires does it? i might be wrong though, so dont take my word on it. i know you can do it by stat dec as well, but not sure of the procedure involved. it is strange that they are not responding to your emails. when i last had a licencing question, they responded to me really quickly. perhaps try emailing again?"
madilayn :
"You really do need to go to Main Roads to renew your license, as you need to get a new photograph taken and also sign the declarations. However, as you won't need your Qld licence until 18 December, then there should be no problem about it being expired."
Elizabeth :
"I just phoned my son, who works for Qld Transport. Here's what he said. You CAN do it over the net. When you are within 6 weeks of expiry date of licence, log on to go to renewal of licence. (Edit - here's the web address for the page you need. Make sure you do not require any changes to your licence or it will lock you out for good. It happened to me last December because I said I now needed to wear glasses. I had to go to the Qld Transport office.) You'll need the reference number which is on the renewal notice they send out. It will be sent to the address on your licence."

Don't bypass Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays, south of Cairns, Australia - stop and enjoy all the region has to offer. The BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort is a great spot for a family holiday. For my small family, our three nights at this Airlie Beach holiday park were not enough.
