    Because the entire complex tourism industry boils down to a one-line, trivial solution.

    Happy Friday, y'all.

    You can't save the world mate, I guarantee nothing you say will change their mind.

    because it's all the fault of those nasty scammers and certainly nothing they themselves did wrong.

    I've found they can barely understand the concept, let alone go one step further to "fix" the concept.

    This whole data beach thing is headed for some pretty catastrophic end result.

    For now sure... but you've even chosen "Dig Up Rocks" over "Protect the thing that the tourists come to see"

    I need to take my Holidays somewhere else - this is a Sev1 issue because the Kids really enjoyed the Theme parks.

    Finally, some sanity from this ass-backwards state.

    But he's coming from SA so he's only losing 30 minutes.
    Unless he leaves his clocks on standard central time and gets an extra 30 minutes on his holiday instead.

    Mate, if he's coming from SA, he's putting his clocks forward about 40 years.

    There is one good thing about DLS though.
    When I travel to Adelaide for work and I'm flying back home (and let's face it, the best part of going to Adelaide is leaving) it's only a 30 minute flight.

    In all seriousness, Adelaide domestic is a pretty nice airport.

    It's certainly better than the qantas terminal at Perth.

    Why is it so difficult to get rid of an S2D pool and yet googling it only yields result of S2D pools disappearing without warning?

    Have you been mad enough to try the "catch the redeye from Adelaide and be in the Perth office for work at 9am on Monday morning" thing? I did it...once.

    To QLD, who voted in such people as Dutton, Hanson, Roberts, Katter and Christensen. What a step forward.

    One could also reference the fact that SA is a state focused on renewable energy and QLD is still agitating for coal, so that's another clear step forward, right?

    This Joke only works if I'm not going to QLD.

    No arguments there, Adelaide as a City is lackluster at best (Except for March).

    Travel North to the Flinders Rangers
    Travel West to the Yorke/Eyre peninsulas
    Travel South to The Fleurieu peninsular and Kangaroo Island.

    The good thing is - Leaving the city by road doesn't cost an Arm and Leg (If Toll roads are the Future, I'm happy where I am), and take an age.
