Melbourne woke up to a chilly 4 degrees this morning, the coldest of the year so far. Eighteen former Queenslanders died.
Experts say thousands of Queenslanders emigrate south each year in search of valuable art degrees and decent coffee. Tragically, many of them never return.
One Queenslander foolishly booked a June holiday in Melbourne to prove a point to his mates. His funeral is next week.
More to come.
