Sorry yall I don't want to use this place as a sort of "look at how amazing my life is" Instagram, but I just wanted to let yall know that the Cook Islands were incredible, that I just woke up to free pancakes in my hostel on Bondi and that I'll be petsitting a lovely dog and cat in Sydney for a month ๐Ÿ˜Š #travel #australia #sydney

Can somebody help me understand this please: why would we ever give out carbon credits for not chopping down a forest? โ€œHereโ€™s a forest we shouldnโ€™t cut down anyway. Because weโ€™re not cutting it down, now you can burn more fossil fuels!โ€

The Global #Slavery Index shows #Australia risks importing billions of commodities incl. #palmoil linked to #humanrights abuses. Story via @Greens. Don't stand for it, instead #Boycottpalmoil #Boycott4Wildlife @palmoildetectives https://palmoildetectives.com/2023/07/19/australia-must-not-be-a-dumping-ground-for-palm-oil-made-from-slavery-the-australian-greens/


#Australia - like the EU and America MUST ban goods coming from #ecocide and #humanrights abuses incl. #palmoil or risk turning into a global dumping ground for goods made from #slavery: The Australian @Greens #Boycottpalmoil @palmoildetectives

I took this photo last year at Curtain Fig National Park in #Australia.

This spectacular strangler fig is nearly 165 ft (50m) tall, with a trunk circumference of 128ft (39m) & estimated to be >500 years old! #nature


#Wikimedia #Australia (@wm_au) and the State Library of Queensland announced their First Nations Wikipedian in Residence, Bianca Valentino, to improve the representation of #FirstNations music and musicians on #Wikipedia!

"Iโ€™m tired of the misrepresentation, silencing narratives, & way mainstream media distorts our narrative. Iโ€™m here for all the good stuff โ€“ truth, decolonisation, cultural resurgence, ancestral connection, community & sharing deadly music!"


Where are all these guys (supposedly) getting their Raspberry Pi devices from, considering *nobody* in #Australia seems to have them in stock and hasnโ€™t done so for 6-9+ months? Perhaps , instead of organising meet ups, you should focus on, I donโ€™t know, your significant supply chain issues? | #RaspberryPi



Donald Hobern made this #RaspberryPi -powered moth trap to capture images of Canberra moths, but knowing #Australia, there'll be some WILDlife wandering into shot before long.

(Disclaimer: "knowing Australia" means what I Googled about Australian wildlife)

There are #RaspberryPi community events coming up in the #UK, #Canada, #Australia and the #US.

Donโ€™t have one near you? Start your own and let us know about it!

Buzz, buzz buzz, let's monitor why he does.

A research team in Victoria, #Australia, is using #RaspberryPi to keep an eye on honeybees pollinating crops at a strawberry farm.

(My money's on the yellow one)

"...herds of giant wombats as large as rhinoceros roamed southern #Australia" When you post something cute that turns into Night of Lepus real fast.


I just spotted my first wombats in the wild on Cradle Mountain in Tasmania.

These stocky little marsupials sort of look like a cross between a baby brown bear, koala & pig. They have a pouch like other marsupials, but itโ€™s backwards which prevents dirt from entering as they burrow.

At just over 3 ft long, theyโ€™re absolutely charming. But millions of years ago, herds of giant wombats as large as rhinoceros roamed southern #Australia. #wildlife #photography #SharedPlanet


I refuse to believe this place is even real.

#Australia


Be thankful youโ€™re not in #Australia - we have the most ridiculous, over-zealous #defamation legislation (laws) in the world and people are frequently sued over the most trivial things, no matter how small they may beโ€ฆ Most of the time, the โ€œdefamedโ€ party is successful. A case like this one in Australia would almost certainly see *you* coming off second-best, even though this #scammer is *clearly* in the wrong hereโ€ฆ


Iโ€™d love to have received a #RaspberryPi for Christmasโ€ฆ But thereโ€™s virtually no stock available, particularly in #Australia .


Steam Deck:
Can't work out the logistics to ship to #Australia.

Nintendo Switch:
Ships new models to Australia almost immediately.

And don't give me the 'money' argument - a quick search shows that #ValveSoftware is worth about US$10 billion, whilst #Nintendo is worth about US$13 billion, so it's not *that* much of a difference... Our #gaming market is also larger than many of the countries the #SteamDeck is currently available in now.


Unless you know, you're located in #Australia... In which case, the Steam Deck is *not* a thing. #Linux #SteamDeck


"Our newly published research found backyard hensโ€™ eggs contain, on average, more than 40 times the lead levels of commercially produced eggs. Almost one in two hens in our Sydney study had significant lead levels in their blood. Similarly, about half the eggs analysed contained lead at levels that may pose a health concern for consumers."

Peeps in #, you might be interested in signing this petition to make access to Australian standards easier and more affordable - a bit of a no-brainer, really.

Any idea what this spiky plant is?
Fruit has thin tough skin, spongey/crisp flesh (like a lillypilly), lots of seeds, no distinctive smell (just vegetative).

No idea of taste, since Iโ€™m not eating random red fruit found on a bush that given the spikes, is clearly designed not to be eaten.
