Masterpieces from the Musee d’Orsay at the National Gallery of Australia
By Michelle

It is well worth a visit to Canberra to see these fabulous artworks that can normally only be seen in Paris. And while you are in Canberra there are lots of other things to do - the new National Portrait Gallery is right next-door, and Old Parliament House is nearby. Make the trip really worthwhile and stay three or four days - the exhibition is definitely worth seeing more than once and membership to the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) is only $45 for a single if you come from 100km or more outside the ACT, and gives you substantial discounts on entry to the Masterpieces Exhibition (as well as discounts at the Gallery Shop and NGA Cafe). I had seen the masterpieces previously in Paris, but they are displayed to great advantage here and the NGA has grouped them into rooms by period,... Read more

Nokia Navigator 6710
Australia
By Ning Zhang

Nokia Navigator 6710 This product was a pleasure to test and review and it most certainly would be a brilliant tool to have with you for travel to areas you don’t know well, and also for everyday use. The mobile phone has built-in GPS and comes with pre-loaded maps and a digital compass, which makes the 6710 Navigator the perfect tourist tool to take you to beautiful new locations. It also has an excellent 5-megapixel camera which enables you take quality photographs through the Carl Zeiss lens. I gave the camera a good workout and tested many of the features, including GPS, maps, digital compass, camera/video player, FM radio, music player, calendar, alarm and wireless connection. The 6710 has a 2.6-inch screen, and that is a respectable size for a phone but for a naviga... Read more

Colgate Travel Essentials
By Penny Parsons

Product Review – Colgate Travel Essentials This is perfect for travel – the zip lock bag is a compact 20x15cm and contains everything you need for oral care while you travel… and it complies with airline carry-on restrictions for liquids. There are also travel-sized bottles of Palmolive Naturals Active Nourishment Shampoo, Milk & Honey Shower Milk – also travel compliant. The Travel Essentials Pack contains 50gm of Colgate Maximum Cavity Protection toothpaste, 50ml of Colgate Plax mouthwash, a toothbrush and Total waxed floss. I loved the conditioning shampoo – great lather, lovely smell and left my hair feeling clean and soft. The body milk is just lovely – gorgeous fragrance and my skin felt soft and nourished. Both bottles are 100ml, ... Read more

Smart Ass
Australia
By Penny Parsons

This is a travel version of the popular Smart Ass board game and is perfect for taking on car trips to keep the kids happy. It comes in a colourful and durable tin and has 200 cards, split between the four categories… Who am I, What am I, Where am I and Smart Ass. We took the game on a teambuilding weekend and it was the perfect way to relax after dinner on the first night and get everyone talking and laughing. The beauty of this version is the compact size and as there is no game board, you don’t even need a table to play. The winner is the first person to collect 4 cards. It is easy to play – one person reads out the questions (perfect for kids, who probably won’t know the majority of the answers) and the other members of the group call out their answer. If...
