Albany, Gunnedah, Ingham, Launceston, Manly and Margaret River will all be “blitzed” this week as the AO Blitz traverses Australia.

The Blitz will begin its latest road-trip on Thursday for the first of a three-day stint in Launceston, and while remaining in the Apple Isle will fan out to some of Australia’s furthest reaches, including Margaret River and Albany in southern Western Australia, and Ingham in Far North Queensland.
