4 Must Visit Places In Australia!!

If you are looking to spend a memorable holiday this year, I recommend Australia. It is a large country marginally smaller than the U.S.A. Its sheer size and location make it a continent with a population of about 24 million. Since Australia is a big country and there is a relatively small population, most of the land is unviolated with concrete structures. So, you are in luck to get a nice touch of nature with beautiful landscapes and animals along with hints of some man-made wonders. One of the major concerns regarding a visit to another country is the safety situation there. Australia is relatively safe for tourists, which is proved by one of the lowest crime rates in the world, so you can roam around and discover the peaceful cities and the serene beaches with no qualms. However, in the event you are caught up in an incriminating situation, I suggest to consult with criminal lawyers Sydney to help you out of any tangles.

Australia is a country known for its sandy beaches, so visit the 4 places I listed below for this summer season.

  1. Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is a well-known Australian landmark, which attracts thousands of tourists every year. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is shaped like shells and is surrounded by water on three sides with the Royal Botanical Gardens (another place to visit) to the South. There is a lot to do in and around the Opera House, from listening to performances, dining at one of the restaurants to taking a tour of the building and enjoying the many halls and exhibition rooms. You can even enjoy the ferry cruise in the evening to take the Sydney Opera House as the backdrop of your family photos.

  1. Great Barrier Reef Marine Park

The Great Barrier Reef is so great that it is visible from outer space! Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? It is one of the biggest living structures on Earth and also listed as a World Heritage Site. The ecosystem supports 3,000 coral reefs, 600 continental islands, 300 coral cays and inshore mangrove forests. Therefore, it is termed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World stretching 2,300 kilometers. Snorkeling and diving are great activities to explore the 1,600 underwater species living in the reefs. If you despise getting wet, head over to the underwater glass galleries or enjoy an experience in the glass bottom boats.

  1. Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park

This park is a famous tourist destination because of Ayers Rock/Uluru which is a dome-shaped red rock in the middle of a red desert. It is one of Australia’s most photographed landscape, which is just another reason to visit it. The park is located in the heart of Aboriginal Australia and it is best to find tour guides of aboriginal descent, so they guide you while telling stories about the region.

  1. Bondi Beach

Sandy beaches, tanned bodies, surfing, and a cool swim are what bring people from over the world to this famous beach. It is only 15 minutes away from the Sydney City Center and a great place for a family picnic. However, try to make your way to the beach early as it gets overcrowded quickly. You can also enjoy the street side restaurants, Skate Park, and Sunday markets if swimming is not your cup of tea.

Although Australia has plenty of nature destinations, they are a little far from the major cities making them inaccessible. So, plan wisely if you are with your family.

Why Is My Washing Machine Leaking?

Your washing machine is an integral part of your home, yet it is often taken for granted! You probably put a load of washing into it every day and simply expect it to get on with its job.

The first automatic washing machine for home use arrived on the market in 1937. The principle behind the machines remains the same today.

Fortunately, this means that the reasons for it leaking also remains the same! In most cases you should be able to spot the problem and rectify it yourself.


Fancy Detergents

Despite what you may have heard using specially formulated laundry detergent does not cause your machine to leak.

However using too much detergent can! Excess suds created can partially block the pipes in the machine. This causes slow drainage which is an issue when the machine is spinning. The excess water is forced out through any exit it can find; leaking onto your floor in the process.

The bigger issue is that this creates the opportunity for leaks which are likely to become worse over time.

Pipe Work

It is important to check the pipe connections to your machine. They may simply be loose or the washer may have deteriorated.

It is worth noting that 78% of plumbing issues are actually caused by supply line faults.

You should be able to see the issue at the back of your machine as the supply pipe will be wet and possibly dripping.

The solution is surprisingly simple. Switch off the water supply to the machine and disconnect the pipe. You can then either replace the washers or the pipe to prevent the leak from reoccurring.

There is also a drain hose at the back of the machine. This should be connected to your mains drain system. However, sometimes the pipes are simply located in the drain pipe and not secured. This can cause them to move and leak.

Dripping water leaks may seem small but they can cause a lot of damage to your flooring and other areas of your home. The quicker you deal with it the better.

Door Seal

This is another area where age is often a factor. The door on your machine will be opened and closed many times every day. This places pressure and causes wear on the seal round the door.

Look at it closer for any signs of cracking. You should be able to slide the seal off and replace it with a new one.

Internal Issues

If you are a little mechanically minded then it is worth turning the water and electric supply off to your machine and removing the back cover.

You should then be able to trace the pipes through the machine.

The pump is a common point of issue; check it thoroughly to ensure it is dry. It is also worth looking at the water level switch; especially if the leak occurs when the machine is filling up.

This switch stops the water entering the machine when it reaches the right level; without it the system will overflow. Fortunately, it can be easily replaced.

It is worth checking all the pipe work that you can see in the machine; any of it can perish over time although it can also be replaced.
