What happens when four brave people take a five-day tour of Melbourne, dictated entirely by the whims of the public? As Tourism Victoria’s Remote Control Tourists, the intrepid quartet traversed the city last week, following a treasure hunt of tips and instructions from social media users in 145 countries.

Lower levels of spending and cut-throat competition are starting to bite McDonald’s, with consumers withdrawing even from the food chain’s bargain basement offers.
This is very good news. McDonalds needs to realise that sales aren’t declining because ‘the economy has worsened’ (21 years of uninterrupted economic growth) or because ‘youth unemployment is around 25.5%’ (the most recent statistics from May put it at 11.6% - one of the lowest in the world) - McDonalds is losing money because Australians have the options and the money to buy better food. This is a great sign for the Australian hospitality and small business sector. McDonalds has capitalised off the urban poor and the competition/nutrition-starved consumer for far too long.
Kudos to you Australia.
And, of course, Beyonce playing at Rod Laver in October. Dope year to love RnB!!
