One of our major industries is tourism and it is great for the world to see that there are tourist places - such as the Gold Coast - that are operating normally.

Most Aussies are safe and going about their normal activities including having fun - going to the beach, the tennis, the cricket and the races as they normally do in summer.

The media coverage I have seen overseas seems to suggest that we are all about to be burnt and that nothing is happening other than fighting fires when that it not the case at all.

At this time, more than ever, we need tourists to come and spend their money and Zara and Mike being here are able to show exactly that. These two aren't the only ones at these events - many Aussies are as well and they are there to largely have fun (and as the major event on Saturday is a race meeting to gamble and drink).

Celebrities such as Pink and Selena Gomez have donated several million dollars to the bushfires, so perhaps the poster meant a donation of some sort? Or even a visit to one of the affected communities if it's safe? (Which Zara had done by raising awareness of the firefighters' plights.)

Yes, raising awareness is a great help. And, this is the Fail, but it reported that Zara helped to raise 300,000 dollars towards bushfire relief at the Magic Millions.

The Magic Millions will raise more before the week is over. There are several events leading up to the race meeting on Saturday.

I wouldn't be surprised to find that Zara and Mike make a visit to the firefighters in Qld to pass on the Queen's personal regards ... but it won't be reported as they aren't royals only the granddaughter of the Queen and her husband.

Zara looks lovely and Mike is his usual good natured self. The ride on the beach looks like fun.
They are there raising money and your critical? Something wrong, never enough.

Oh well, same rules for everyone. The Land Rover must handle well at high speeds.

Zara and Mike and family should be right where they are in Australia.
All Australians have been asked to steer clear of the fire zones so as not to hinder emergency vehicles etc. To be 'advertising' other beautiful areas where tourists love to stay and to promote the Magic Millions is very positive.
They are private people on a well planned visit.

At least Mike is allowed to drive; as he already completed his 3 year ban a few years ago...

It seems to me that Zara was probably distracted - possibly even a little drunk after a party - because it feels silly to be a careless driver after several points have already been knocked off your license.

Let's just say that with their track record I wouldn't want to receive a lift from them!

No, they're all in Australia. There were photos of them on the beach a couple of days ago.

I haven't been online for the past couple of days so I missed those. Thanks for the confirmation - I guess Mia's not at school yet or it starts later?

School returns this week I believe. They might be a day or so late getting here there assuming that she and/or Lena didn't fly back early with their nanny ... or whoever was looking after them when Zara and Mike were working last week.

It varies by part of the country. Schools here in South East London went back last week, which was why I asked.
