DIY Wotz-On Guide to the LONG weekend 2-5 Oct

By RiotPost - 3 October 2009 12

[First filed: Oct 1, 2009 @ 9:41]

Ok folks, its a LONG weekend coming up so I suspect a lot of you will be travelling interstate. If so travel safe and don’t forget it’ll likely be double demerit points all weekend.

So besides the cops being out on the roads and tie-less (end of winter uniform so I’ve been told), what are the top things to see and do for those of us staying here in Canberra?

Oh, and don’t forget to change your clock as Daylight Saving Timestarts on Sunday!

What’s Your opinion?
