I am visiting Australia from February 6-March 1, 2019. A couple of gamers have asked me to drop off/mail (from within Australia) some Napoleonic scenario books I wrote. I am now looking forward to meeting some of those I have corresponded with or others just to see some of the clubs, games, terrain or stores.

Are there any recommendations?

Where in Australia are you visiting?

Enjoy your stay but Australia is a very large country, so where
you are staying is important to get relevant input

Sounds like a great trip. I'd like to do it myself and I live here!

Prior to the 9th I am renting a car and driving west from Melbourne, 12 Apostles, wine vineyards and just seeing some country on the south central side.

Only 8 Apostles left now, I'm afraid. Attrition. Still worth it, though.

Thanks, had to look that up – lost one in 2005?! Mother Nature does not play nice some days.
