"Notorious vowel thief Ilona_Ritter, recently visited Australia on the Funtrivia bus ride and souvenired the vowels from ten sites that all had the distinction of containing one of each vowel. Can you return the vowels and identify the location?"
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
The Funtrivia tour of Australia began in a region twenty kilometres south of Jabiru in Kakadu National Park. While the other passengers were marvelling at the indigenous art that had been painted on the sandstone rock that is named after this area, Ilona_Ritter stole all of the vowels from this region's name. Can you help restore the identity of this location by returning the stolen vowels?
The tour bus crossed the border into Queensland where it soon reached the site of a disused mine at the southern tip of the Daintree National Park. As the rest of the group sojourned at the pub for refreshments, one of only a few establishments here, Ilona_Ritter pocketed the vowels from the local signage. Where exactly do these vowels belong?
No tour of Queensland would be complete without taking in the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. Our intrepid explorers spent some time snorkelling and lazing on the beach twentyfive kilometres from the mainland due east of Ingham. While on a tour of the James Cook University marine research station, Ilona_Ritter sneaked away with the vowels from this slice of paradise. Can you return the vowels and discover this site?
The eastern fringe of the Blue Mountains of New South Wales was the next point of interest on the agenda. The bus pulled up at a historic village located about eighty kilometres west of Sydney. Whilst touring the Norman Lindsay gallery the vowels were taken from this sleepy hideaway. No points for guessing who the culprit was, but grab a paint pot and restore the vowels to this location.
The tour bypassed Sydney in order to preserve the vowels within the Harbour Bridge and made its way to the coastal city of Wollongong. The passengers alighted in a suburb that shares its name with a peak that dominates the Wollongong area. While they were attempting the climb up to the summit, Ilona_Ritter stayed behind and took the vowels from this place. By replacing the missing vowels you will find out exactly where this occurred.
Having reached the halfway point of the journey, the bus driver continued southwards to Melbourne. Regarded as the sporting capital of Australia, it seemed fitting to take in a spot of horse racing. The bus stopped in one of the eastern suburbs that shares a border with a similarly named suburb with a similarly named racetrack that is host to one of the major events on the horse racing calender. Take a punt on the name of this suburb by replacing the stolen vowels.
It was not long after crossing the border into South Australia when the bus stopped again. The tourists stood in awe of the most amazing blue coloured lake they had ever seen, situated in what seemed to be a volcanic crater. Even Ilona_Ritter was gobsmacked, but still that didn't prevent the vowels from going missing. What is the name of this place that captured everyone's attention?
Because the Funtrivia bus is magic, it had no trouble crossing Bass Strait to arrive at its next destination in Tasmania. The passengers found their land legs in a small port town situated on the Tamar River, just under fifty kilometres north of Launceston. While the travellers were taking a tour of Seahorse World, Ilona_Ritter struck again. Can you insert the vowels correctly to find the name of this town?
Continuing the journey in the Apple Isle, the bus travelled down the Tasman Highway to a small fishing village on the east coast of Tasmania located seven kilometres north of the slightly larger town of Bicheno. While casting a line from the sands of the picturesque beach, Ilona_Ritter reeled in the vowels from this town. Can you fish out those letters and return them?
Fine Bay Sound
The bus went back to the mainland for the final leg of the journey and stopped just over twenty kilometres from the coastal town of Denmark in Western Australia. The passengers were confronted with a large granite rock that has the same name as the national park in which it is located. While everybody was busy taking photos of the abundant number of wildflowers, Ilona_Ritter, for the final time, pocketed the vowels from this place. Can you return the vowels just once more to find the final location?
