Surprising Things To Do In Australia

Here are a few  things you didn't know you could do in Australia.

1. Spot an alien in the UFO capital of Australia, Wycliffe Well. The Northern Territory outback town is a hotspot for sightings.

2. Go underground and explore streams that run through tunnels underneath Sydney's CBD. Tours are available by ballot only at the Historic Houses Trust of NSW website.

3. Check out one of Australia's great pink salt lakes. They turn pink from algae in the water, like this one in the Murray Sunset National Park, Victoria. You'll also come across the phenomenon at lakes in South Australia and Western Australia.


5. Visit an outback plane graveyard at Alice Springs Airport. The arid landscape is home to retired aircraft, like the famous Mojave Desert in California, US.

6. The world's steepest incline railway, Scenic Railway at the Blue Mountains, is now steeper with its recent revamp. The adjustable incline can be a real cliffhanger - at up to 64 degrees.

7. An entire garden of detailed, tiny villages in Canberra, Cockington Green Gardens has grown to include international areas, as well as its incredible English village.

8. Camping at Uluru is anything but ordinary at Longitude 131. The award-winning luxury tent-style accommodation offers breath-taking views of Australia's spiritual heartland.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)

Restricted enrolment schools (Melbourne Eastern Region)

Due to facility limitations, Eastern Metropolitan Region has a number of schools with enrolments restricted in various ways. These schools are not required to enrol students outside their neighbourhood area unless they have spare places. They are referred to as having an enrolment ceiling and/or a designated neighbourhood area (formerly known as zones).  Any additional students must be enrolled strictly according to Department of Education and Early Childhood Development priority criteria. SCHOOLS WITH AN APPROVED ENROLMENT UNDERSTANDING Designated Neighbourhood Area In some instances the Regional Director may need to restrict new enrolments at a particular school and will therefore specifically designate the neighbourhood area (formerly referred to as a zone).  Children who live outside the Designated Neighbourhood Area cannot be guaranteed a place at that school even if it is their closest neighbourhood school.  The the following schools have an apporved Designated Nei
