Pretour - flight from Brisbane to Perth
(28th September 2007)

Australia is  vast land mass - the whole of South Africa fits quite easily into my state, the state of Queensland. Queensland smakes up just a small part of the Australian continent.

The flight from Brisbane to Perth (east coast to west coast) - on my way to South Africa takes about six hours.

I am spending a few days in Perth before embarking on my tour to South Africa.
