From the spiky Australian bush to the ski slopes of the Snowy Mountains to the rainforests of Far North Queensland, and everywhere in between, Gibblewort the goblin has blundered, crawled and whinged his way through Australia's vast landscape. So surely a relaxing day somewhere in Australia would be possible. But wherever Gibblewort goes this vast land of ours remains his nemesis. Will he EVER get back home to rainy ol' Ireland?
