  1. Hi, We're moving over next yr and are considering where to live. My husband is going to look for work at an international airline so we need to live within 45 mins of an airport. We thought Brisbane was going to be most suitable as we have a good work contact there but finding somewhere to live within walking distance of a nice beach is proving unlikely from the research I've been doing (I've just put a post in the Queensland section in case anybody has any bright ideas that we've missed). We are unmovable on living near to the beach - at the moment we live a 10 min drive away in the UK but never get around to going and I'd like to be able to take the kids after school regularly. We loved Sydney but don't think we can afford to live close to the beach there as house prices are too high (unless there are suburbs further out that are accessible to the airport where house prices are more reasonable?) Although we liked Cairns when we visited, we don't like the fact you can't swim in the water. Perth is an option as we loved it there too, but feel he would have a long commute to the airport in order for us to be able to find an affordable beach suburb. Can anyone suggest where might be a good fit for us? We haven't visited Melbourne, Adelaide and lots of other potential cities. We have three kids so need good schools and are looking for a place that has a community feel. Any suggestions of places we could research would be appreciated! x

  3. INTERNATIONAL airline passengers entering Australia tomorrow face delays and disruption due to quarantine employees voting to strike for four hours over a pay claim. The union representing Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries employees said inbound international travellers should be prepared for delays and urged those collecting passengers to take account of this, The Australian reported. The Community and Public Sector Union said the industrial action would also affect cargo inspections, the release of imported goods and X-ray screening of international mail. In a letter to the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service, a Sydney Airport senior manager, Jeff Stirk, warned the action would have a "very significant impact'' on operations. Increased congestion in the Customs hall and baggage reclaims areas would heighten security risks, and there could be problems with baggage handling, including on transfer flights. Strike scheduled for 19th August 2011

  6. Latest Qantas News 29 December 2009 Changes to Airline Prohibited Items List With Australian Airports The Federal Government has introduced a change to the Aviation Transport Security Regulations to allow a number of items that were previously prohibited. From 25 December 2009 the following items may now be taken through security screening points and into the sterile area of airports within Australia: - umbrellas with metal points - knitting and crochet needles - pointed metal nail files (including nail clippers) - corkscrews, and - racquets used in squash, tennis, badminton or any other sport. In addition to the above items, the Government will also allow metal cutlery, including metal knives with rounded ends and no sharp points, to be provided in the sterile area of airports for use by persons in landside security zones, or on an aircraft for use by persons on the aircraft. Persons who wish to enter a sterile area will not be permitted to pass through the screening point with a metal cutlery knife, in the same way they have not been permitted to do so in the past. Items that continue to remain prohibited include: knives, firearms, letter openers, scissors, baseball and cricket bats, golf clubs and hockey sticks. The changes are designed to minimise disruptions for passengers while still ensuring security screeners continue to focus their full attention on items that pose serious security risks for Australian aviation.
