Jumble Sale This forum is for all the jumbled up info about Australia. We've asked that, on the info forums, you please post on the relevant forums, start new threads for new topics, and please keep on topic. Otherwise the info is too hard too find for those coming after, and the already overworked Mod (SSue) ends up having to repeatedly answer the same questions. (If your posting is locked in here, please feel free to post again in the appropriate place.)
