    You can leave Australia from November, but can you get back?

    On Saturday I managed to book a return trip from Melbourne to Cape Town in Dec/Jan with Singapore Airlines at a "reasonable" cost (about $1,000 more than I'd usually pay for that route at that time of the year). I checked yesterday, and the return flight from SIN to MEL is no longer available...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    The moderator team has noticed that there has been an increase in the number of off-topic posts on this thread. Many of these posts are political/unhelpful/divisive (in breach of our Terms of Service) as well as being spiteful/opinionated/insensitive - basically not the type of stuff we want on...

    If you are a paid member (ie. AFF Supporter) you shouldn't see ads on either the forum pages or the article pages. Nor should you see the "AdBlocker Detected" message. Unfortunately there are times when AFF Supporters do get the "AdBlocker Detected" message when they are logged in (and have a...

    Gold Member Offers Transfer your Electricity and/or Gas and get up to $140 back

    I'm not 100% sure - it was provided to me by Econnex. Googling the term does give you some insight - I suspect the offer does not apply if you are on a private grid?

    Gold Member Offers Transfer your Electricity and/or Gas and get up to $140 back

    You're probably aware of the many Energy comparison services available in Australia. These services make it easy for you to get a better deal by comparing what you are currently paying your current provider with alternative providers. If they find you a better deal, they can then facilitate you...

    The COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Australia has begun

    I have removed a whole bunch of posts which are becoming too political and threaten to start spiralling. Please stick to the topic and avoid comments which can be interpreted as political. We don't allow political posts on AFF.

    Vaccine Rollout in Australia - personal accounts.

    My 2nd AZ vaccination was booked in for early August, but decided to bring it forward by 2 weeks after listening to Norman Swan. Walked into the Sandringham hospital this morning - paperwork and jab completed in under 30 minutes, with very little waiting. So very impressed with the...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    <Mod Hat> I have removed a whole bunch of posts from this thread. They were divisive and added zero to this important topic. Infractions were also issued. I realise that this is a difficult time for many and urge you to keep your posts civil and ensure that they are constructive. Lets not add to...

    Seeing someone else's username where mine should be

    I was doing a bit of cache tweaking and noticed this problem pretty much immediately so all should be OK now. Again as as per my earlier post there was no security compromise.

    One step forward, two steps back!! The Ad company corrected the issue we had over the weekend with ad between pages, but have introduced a new problem - with that header ad. Apologies for that! I have reported the issue, and it should be corrected soon.

    A quick update: It looks as though the problem hasn't been properly resolved and that some of you may now be seeing an ad at the top of the page. Working on correcting this....

    Just a quick note about the problem some of our paid members (AFF Supporters) are experiencing with that rogue ad on mobiles. I have raised a support ticket with our ad provider. They are based in the US and due to the weekend there will be a delay in getting it resolved. Hopefully in the next...
