Get away from the pubs

Herald Sun - Switched On - - On The Couch -

IS IT just me or does Chan­nel 9’s Get­away only cater to the twen­tysome­thing tourists who think that an ad­ven­ture is how many bars and pubs you can go to? A re­cent show high­lighted two desti­na­tions on my must-see list: Grace­land and Stan­ley Park, in Van­cou­ver. Not only did they not show Stan­ley Park, but the Grace­land seg­ment barely lasted three min­utes, in which time we were sub­jected to com­ments such as, ‘‘ Gee, Elvis’s fur­ni­ture was such tacky ’ 70s style’’. They didn’t have time to do a proper tour of Grace­land, but had plenty of time to hit the bars and go to a shoot­ing range, things you can do any­where! Can Get­away please de­vote seg­ments for peo­ple of all ages, not just mo­ronic drinkers. Greg Clark, email
