Is the whole playa full of Aussies this year? (At least they speak English. Kind of.) Our camp Barbie Death Camp & Wine Bistro has no fewer than four Aussies coming this year. At least I now know what an eskie is.

Hey guys - thanks for the warm welcome.

Hotel balmoral you are a very lucky guy/gal - congratulations! I would love to get just one o those tickets from you dude, I'm sure you've already had a few offers, and may hVe gotten rid of them already but it would be amazing if we could get our last core member to the playa!

Also keen to hear where you other Aussies are coming from - were from Melbourne.

Happy to share tips etc from former experience - just PM me :)

All the best

Hello, If you still have 2 spare tickets I would LOVE to take them off your hands.
It's kind of hard to have a playa wedding when the Bride & Groom didn't get tickets :( It's been a very emotional ride these last few weeks.
Our friend who became an ordained minister to wed us got tickets and 2 others in our bridal group. If you can help out a bride-to-be I would love to hear from you. xxx BarShirley, Crows Nest. Sydney.

Burning man for Amerkins!!

Why should we have to put up with drunken low life criminal flotsom and jetsom from merry olde england buying OUR precious tickets and puking their guts out on a nightly basis all over OUR playa.

Heya Fellow Aussie

Wishing you all the BEST time. Stay safe. Have fun.

We missed out on tickets, only needed 2. The STEP program doesn't look like it can issue 2 tickets for 1 entry.
If you hear or know of any spare tickets getting around. I would love to hear from you. (Will pay Face Value + incurred costs.)

Gday!!! (yes some of us Aussies do actually say Gday :wink: )

There are two of us making the trip from Perth to the playa again this year.

I am thinking it could be fun to plan some sort of Australian themed participatory activity this year. Maybe an emu / roo run or hunt through the city? Platypus party? Cricket match with lamingtons and anzac biscuits and beer?

Ideas???

Hay skippy dog great idea
Maybe we need to start our " Aussies to take Over the playa" thread
And come up up with one theme for all the Aussie to join In on
No Aussie flag stuff makes me itch with that whole Aussie proud thing
Maybe we could all wear the hat with dangling corks
Are there flies out on the playa ?

Typically, no. Even less this year--too dry.

Absolutely no flags, and no taking over, only lots of roos or emu's, and an opportunity to be one for a moment or two!
