    I've seen some great shows in stadiums, but I've seen way more great shows in indoor arenas. The view in a stadium for 95% of the audience is a big screen. It's okay but not as good.
    Come to send, not condescend...

    ^ Happy Australia day, indeed! I just had my e-toursist Visa granted to visit. That  should have been my first step. The ETA app was cheaper (20Aus) than that Immu site/office that wanted 190$.
    Not sure which visa you were looking at on the immi ac website as they are free??

    Thats for up to a 12mth visa not an ETA thats why- the evisitor visa is free which gives you the uo to 3mths stay

    You can apply the subclass 651 free on the immi site ahead of time, it doesn't need to be used within a 3-month window. It's also good for a year with 3 months max entries at a time.

    As a first step, it's best to do before purchasing flights, in case you're an undesirable and denied entry. 

    Thanks, Michey, for showing me this option on the site because I had found the wrong tourist subclass!

    No probs at all- i just wanted to make sure anyone reading this and acting on it has the right info. As a previous travel agent, i had customers come in all the time that had been ripped off from going on wrong websites that over charged or got the wrong visa so just wanna make sure everyone has access to the right info 🤩

    I have determined that this poster is harsh sometimes, but honestly does not realize it.   So it doesn’t bug me anymore.

    Well done you re bungy  - im currently looking at booking a skydive over Tauranga! Been on the bucket list for years.

    And I second the Fergburger recommendation- cant go to Queenstown and not experience it- if its like it used to be go hungry and be prepared for a line but its so worth it.

    Fuck ya, Michey!

    I hope you make your booking Michey! No time like the present! That sounds super fun, good for you!

    Edit: I can't believe there's no age minimum to do this I have to check it out further!!!  I won't make it though, because I'm not going to rent a car after all since GoMedia doesn't have parking.

    It's too far of a drive for us! the website said it's 5 minutes from the cruise ship but it's not from CBD.

    Book it!!! So fun

    Another great tip! Thank you 😊
