seanaussie Local Star

My name's Sean. I've lived in Sydney, Adelaide, Launceston & visited every state of Australia - that's why they call me seanaussie! So I've reviewed anywhere that either annoys me, amazes me or ably accepts me into their establishment! I hope my reviews help you as you travel around too.

    We were pretty glad the heater was working well when renting here!

    It would be pretty hard to describe these as anything except cute!

  • Europcar
    Car Rental    Hobart, TAS

    Renting from here one cold night, it didn't feel great to have to wander everywhere to find their counter. Our feeling wasn't greatly enhanced by the counter staff's inability to give even simple directions to the main road we were looking for - instead they directed us to some windy dark uninhabited roads. We trusted their directions as they were local but upon arriving where we ended up we realised we should have asked someone else...
    Having said that, the car was nice and warm, drove well, spacious, and the price was the best we could get.

  • South Australian Whale Centre
    Tourist Attractions    Victor Harbor, SA

    This centre, run primarily by volunteeers, is a source of all manner of interesting facts about whales and sea life. They've got an information service that tells you where the whales are when they're around (tip: you can call for an exorbitant fee or just look at the blackboard out the front for free). The exhibits inside are interesting for older kids (maybe 9+) and adults, I could spend ages looking through them. They added a special section on sharks last year and do add other ones at times.
    They also have fantastic kids' programs for all ages with the infamous 'Professor Blubber' who all kids will love, these run during the school holidays at the centre plus at special events in the town too.
    I love the gift shop too, it's only little but it's full of all types of things whale/sealife-related.
    Price is OK though perhaps a little on the pricey side. It's well worth a visit especially so as to support their non-profit local venture.

  • The Big Orange
    Campgrounds & Caravan Parks    Berri, SA

    We've all heard that Australia is the 'big country' - big koala/big pineapple/big everything. Well, I reckon I'd have to describe this 'big' as the relaxed cousin of the big family. Run by some pretty laid back people, with a cheap entry fee but lots of true blue knowledge and fun to keep you interested. There's a sort of train around led by a guy who taught me more about oranges than I ever knew (which admittedly wasn't much) with a real sense of humour and down to earth nature. Of course there were plenty of oranges for tasting and a trip up to this place where you get a great view of the orchard. A little bit dull at times for small kids, but well worth it for others and a genuine way of supporting a real local business.

  • seanaussie Local Star  reviewed KFC
    Visiting here today was like a rerun of a bad movie. Maybe the movie 'Frozen' - you'll see why in a minute!
    After 3 years of not visiting here, in a rush we came through today. Order taking was a bit quicker than 3 years ago, but it still ended up being a long visit as it took them ages to prepare our 3 tiny meals. It's a tiny kitchen but I counted 5 staff in it all looking at each other, perhaps trying to work out where the chicken was (they actually did run out of fillets after my order?!?)
    Then came the frozen bit. As my wife bit into her original fillet burger, she mentioned it was cold. Then she noticed the bread & lettuce was actually not just cold, but frozen! I took one feel of my zinger works burger and sure enough it was also cold. A bite confirmed that my bread & lettuce too was...frozen!
    So I went up to the counter (we were the only customers in the store). The staredown began as the 5 staff looked busily around at each other in the kitchen & I waited at the counter. After 1 minute had passed, I actually had to call out to them. To their credit when I gave them the burger they immediately offered to replace it (my wife had just taken off the frozen parts because she doesn't like lettuce anyway!). There was no apology, just an offer to replace it.
    After a couple of minutes they brought my burger to the table with a rather muted and very quick apology. I'm a bit confused about this as it was incredibly clear that there was a problem with the bun & lettuce: anyone who even took a brief feel of it would know that it was frozen, even through rubber gloves.
    Can you guess what happened next? Yep, a frozen re-run! I honestly thought I must have been imagining it, but got my wife to check and lo and behold my second zinger works burger also contained frozen lettuce and partially frozen bun. I really truly can't believe they didn't notice this this time.
    So I followed my wife's lead, took the lettuce out, broke off the frozen part of the bun & left vowing to never return again.
    (I did give them half a star as my daughter's popcorn chicken wasn't frozen...Infact they were so hot she couldn't eat them at first!!)

      Just thought it fair to add that after I wrote this review they called me to sincerely apologise & offer a voucher for a free meal. Well done on their behalf.
