Calling our Aussie members and other Australians living in Winnipeg and Manitoba.
If you need to renew your passport, or if the newest additions in your family need to apply for a passport, the Australian High Commission in Ottawa would like to know about it.
Please visit their website and complete a very short survey so they know to visit Winnipeg in 2018. Several of us who need passports renewed this year have already filled out the questionnaire, and the more people who the AHC know about, the more likely we will be on their “must visit” destination list.
Save yourself a trip to Vancouver, Toronto or Ottawa this year or next, and help us bring the AHC to town.
Questions? Email us at email@example.com.
In addition to the Down Under Parfait at Sub Zero Ice Cream, two other things to let you know about.
McDonald’s is offering an Aussie BBQ & Egg Burger from July 16 to July 29 as part of its world taste tour. Made with 100% Canadian beef topped with a fresh cracked egg, crispy beet chips, processed cheese, leaf lettuce and a smoky BBQ sauce on a brioche-style bun, it not only looks good, but you could also win a trip to Australia!
And if you are looking for Vegemite, Stonewall Family Foods has small jars of Vegemite for $10.49. It’s in the “British” section of the store, next to Marmite.
The only other place we know has Vegemite is Save On Foods – three locations in Winnipeg. NOTE: London Drugs no longer stocks it and isn’t planning to do so in the future.
If you spot Vegemite anywhere else, or hear of any other Aussie and Kiwi products or locations we should know about, do what Peter and Margaret Munn did and let us know.
Thanks to DUCW members Penny and Sam Hechter for attending the Indigenous Day Live celebrations in Winnipeg on June 23 and letting us know that New Zealand was represented at the event.
“It was a wonderful surprise to see the trio perform, including a haka performance. ”
If you hear about or see any Aussies and Kiwis at events here in Winnipeg, let us know and/or take a photo so we can help spread the word.
This is definitely an event to watch out for next year.
Thanks to DUCW member Margaret Munn for letting us know about the delicious “Down Under” parfait – soft vanilla layered with Nutella, cappuccino crumble, Tim Tam biscuits, and chocolate hazelnut cream-filled wafer.
Get yours today in either a cone or a cup. DELICIOUS!!!
Available now at Sub Zero Ice Cream, 298 Jamison Ave, right here in Winnipeg.
When you get one, take a photo and we’ll post it on our Facebook page.
