I used Launceston park drive fly for the first time over new year. I don’t know this business at all but: they were cheaper than the airport, easier to book than the airport, door to door therefore no issues in the rain or heat (unlike the airport), good car clean while I was away (unlike the airport) and most importantly to me, I presume they pay their rates, unlike the corporation that owns the Launicest on airport. ...

There are fires burning all around the country and some a little to close for comfort. If you are traveling over the Christmas break please stay safe and take care. We also wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of the many volunteers across all emergency services for the rolls they fulfill in their communities and abroad.

This is lovely 🥰 Technically travel related 😍Today Ambulance Wish Queensland delivered its first official wish by transporting a palliative care patient to the airport so he could see the planes take off and land one last time. The QAS is proud to support Ambulance Wish Queensland by donating a vehicle so it can safely transport patients and assist in delivering wishes. Some of our staff also volunteer with the organisation on their days off.
If you or your organisation wish to support this wonderful cause, please contact Palliative Care Queensland - Ambulance Wish Queensland through their website. Alternatively you can call (07) 3842 3222. ⭐️ ... See MoreSee Less
Important information for those travelling with Jetstar
Jetstar Australia Do you have flights booked with us between December 14 and 20? Our Chief Customer Officer, Catriona explains what you need to know and how we will help if your flight is affected by industrial action being taken by members of the Australian Federation of Airline Pilots.
Hope you handle things better than the chaos at Melbourne airport today!! I understand things happen which you have no control over but the way this was handled was unacceptable, dismissing worried passengers as flights were cancelled one after the other and telling them to call the airline on a number which nobody could access was disgraceful, customer service at its worst!!! No wonder the website dontflyjetstar.com is so popular,I can say with absolute certainty I will not be flying Jetstar again and will be relaying my story to anyone I possibly can, train your staff to handle these situations much better than you have!!

Tasmania Fire Service*The Large Air Tanker has completed duties in the Swansea area and returned to Victoria **
A Large Air Tanker (RJ85) from Victoria is en route to Tasmania to assist with containing the McNeills Road fire at Swansea.
A LAT is a fixed-wing firebombing aircraft that can carry fire 11,500 litres of retardant, foam or water, and drop it on or in front of a fire to help slow down its progress.
The LAT's ability to operate is very dependant on weather conditions.
The uncontrolled bushfire in the McNeills Road area near Swansea continues to burn in rugged terrain. Firefighters patrolled the area overnight monitoring fire activity ensuring the community remained safe.
If you’re one of the few who guessed an albino echidna, you’d be right 🦔
Cuteness overload... check out this rare albino echidna, in the wild, near Wineglass Bay at Coles Bay on the Freycinet Peninsula thanks to Rosalind Wharton from PuddleHub who says:
"Home to Wineglass Bay, the Hazards Mountain Range, and this completely off the charts adorable young albino echidna 🙌💕💕. Just look at him. We did… for ages 😍."
These tiny and peculiar egg-laying mammals are normally covered in dark spine-like hairs. However this one has pale blue eyes framed by pink skin and white lashes, a snowy coat and even its claws are white.
This very rare albino echidna lacks melanin, a pigment that gives them their natural colour. It is a miracle that this little fella, estimated to be just over one year old, has survived in the wild because the normally dark colours of an echidna help them camouflage and elude predators.
When faced with danger, this echidna can still use those legs and claws to dig holes for protection, and/or curl up into a spikey ball. Another amazing fact about echidnas is they are excellent tree climbers and swimmers.
