Aug 10, 2018

Even with all the new technologies that we have today, there is nothing like actually getting together and chatting through ideas face to face. So one of the really important things that we wanted to do while we are in Gympie was to get together with Steve from A3rev. He is our expert on all

It is a bit cold here in Gympie this morning but this is Queensland, so by 9 o clock I am sitting out in the sun and warming up nicely. That got me thinking about one of those travel questions. “What is the best time of year to visit…?” If, like the friend we are
