Free Apps for Your Phone
You can download to your smartphone or tablet free apps to Australian government resources.
Australian Police Child ID app helps people send info to police if there's a child abduction or disappearance. It might be the most important thing on your phone.
Other apps include Fires Near Me, National Public Toilet Map, ACCC Recalls, ACCC Shopper, Australia Post, Smartraveller, BlueBays (disability parking) and more.
Special Dates and Events
I'm always being asked about special events in Australia. So I thought I would share with you some sources to find what you need. I just love sharing information.
Can't Find It ?
We received a surprising comment from someone filling out our online Visitor Survey. He complained that he couldn't find Advance Australia Fair on our website. We're not sure why he couldn't find it. The song is listed, appropriately enough, in our 100+ list of Australian songs on our website.
We've listed the information here because we couldn't email these two people with the answers. They didn't give us their email addresses. So remember to add your email address for a reply to your question.
