That's right, but no matter the technique, the tenth time is always a gut buster :-)

Hi All,

I'm visiting the Perth area next week. If anyone can recommend a good bike rental place or some good ride routes I'd appreciate it!

Sorry no info on hire bikes.
If wanting wine, surf, beaches and forrest, head south.
East, you will get the hills forest then farm country for 4 hrs ride, then scrub/bush Goldfeilds (6-7 hrs) ride.
North..........how many days you got ?? You could spend weeks.

You left out something: 600km ESE you'll find me and the best beaches in Australia. Also some of the greatest rides....

Another shark attack in Gracetown, 35 year old local surfer. Yep I agree its their habitat. However if a Dingo attacks on Frazer Island its hunted and put down. If a Bear attacks in the US its hunted and put down. Why don't the same rules apply in the ocean? Just saying...............

They do.

"The state's fisheries department issued a catch and kill order for the shark, saying there was an imminent threat of more attacks in the area."

I don't fancy their chances of being sure they've got the right shark.
