Caps made in Australia?

I'm looking for some plain (single colour, something basic, no logos -- I'll be sewing my own patch onto them) baseball cap style hats that are made in Australia. Bonds tell me they don't make them and, off hand, I don't know any other Australian clothing brands that manufacture locally. Does anyone know an Australian label for baseball caps that actually makes them in Australia? [more inside]

Driving Sydney to Perth via Alice Springs in 3 weeks?

I am in the early stages of planning a trip from England to Australia and am looking at driving from Sydney to Perth via Alice Springs in March/April 2008. I have visited 40 USA States so am no stranger to driving thousands of miles. I normally simply use a hire car but feel that Australia would probably require at least a 4WD. A Motorhome is always a possibility but would rather stay in Motels. I see that between Perth and Uluru there are settlements named Northam, Merredin, Southern Cross, Kalgoorlie, Leonora, Laverton, Warakurna and Kaltukatjara. Anyone know if these settlements have Motels or Hotels? [more inside]

Will an Australian Wii work in the UK and with UK games?

Hi, I am working in Australia for the next month, before going home to the UK, and then most likely moving out to Australia again in a few months for good. I would like to buy a Wii and get going on Zelda, but am struggling to find out if it will work back in the UK and with UK games. So far I know that: 1) Australia runs on similar voltage to UK, so no issues there 2) Australia and the UK are both PAL, so no issues there No-one over here seems to know anything about this - are the two countries in different 'Wii regions' (they are different for DVDs). Thanks Chris

Migrating Slang

Here in the far-flung reaches of the English-speaking world, we're constantly being told our local language is being taken over by "American Slang". But does it go the other way? Are there any British / Australian / New Zealand or wherever phrases and words that have become commonly used by people in North America recently? Do Brooklynites ever exclaim "Crikey!" or "Bloody Hell!"?
