Yeah - I must say, my geography is really good in comparison to "the audience". You don't realise just how much you are learning when you are travelling until you start talking to non-travellers! I'll have to watch the show in an hour when it starts here for us. Sun's only just gone down!!

I've found that to be typical of Australians who don't get out and about and there's a lot of them. I get it at work ...."where are you going for the break"....
"I'm heading up to Blah Blah"..... "Where's that"....."You don't know where it is. It's only 100k away" Happens all the time

I'm not an Aussie but yes I do know where Litchfield park is after visiting many years ago.

The wife and I are still here after arriving in 88 for a look around. Our two kids were born here and don't know any other home and there's still a lot left to see so yes the paper work is in for the deed to be done later this year. Australia is good to those who help themselves....thanks Willem.

GOB & Denny,
I was a bit surprised, I checked it out in the map section and there's two of them, if you spell it Lichfield Park you end up in Adelaide and apparently if you spell it Litchfield you end up in Darwin. Again another peice of useless info.........
