cinema tickets What's the deal?
Register to DVD, Blu-ray and games rental site Lovefilm for its 30 day free trial, and you'll get two free cinema tickets to use at your chosen cinema.

Then choose what package you want (1, 2 or 3 discs at a time). You'll need to select 10 titles before the first disc gets sent to you. Once the first disk is sent, the free tickets will arrive at your postal address within 30 days.
Any restrictions?
This offer's for new customers only, and if you've previously done a free trial with any Lovefilm-powered site, you're not eligible. The offer's limited to one per household, and isn't valid with any other offer. It ends 1 Jan 2012.

Who are the companies?
There are quite a few, inc. Show Film First, See Film First, Momentum Screenings, Disney Screenings and Tell Ten. The more companies you sign up to, the more chance you have of getting a code.
Why do they give free tickets?
To spread the word. Agencies are hired by studios to get people talking about new films, possibly with the hope that if you've seen a film for free you're more likely to give it good reviews. On occasion, they may request feedback via email or text message.
What can I see?
Recent blockbusters shown for free include The King's Speech, Gulliver's Travels, Unstoppable, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network.
Only selected films have previews, and participating cinemas nationwide vary per showing, so there may not be any near you. Often there's more than one screening, with times/cinemas changing, so be quick to snag a seat!
The screenings are at less busy timeslots (ie, not weekend evenings) and are usually reserved for Mon/Tues early evenings.

Outdoor Adventure Holidays - Awesome Fun Around Australia

By Jarad Gibbs

Do you love spending time outdoors or trying out new and exciting activities? If so, spending adventure holidays in Australia is an idea you should seriously consider. Indeed, Australia is not just home to kangaroos and koalas, but also to spectacular natural landscapes that provide the perfect backdrop for outdoor activities, such as the following.

Diving - The clear, sapphire waters of Australia are home to two of the world's biggest - the Great Barrier Reef, which is the biggest coral reef in the world, and the whale sharks, which are the world's biggest fish. Indeed, the Great Barrier Reef can be found just a few metres off the coast of Queensland while the whale sharks can be found feeding on corals in the Ningaloo reef off the opposite coast. You can find dolphins, manta rays, and hundreds of colorful tropical fish here, too, which make it one of the best diving locations in the world.

Canoeing and Kayaking - There are many beautiful and untamed rivers in Australia, too, which are perfect for water activities during your adventure holidays in Australia. Canoeing and kayaking are two popular activities, which, in some instances, can be enjoyed even at night during the full moon. If you would rather stay in the ocean, though, you can try sea kayaking, particularly on the waterfront of Tasmania. Sea kayaks are available for rent for a few hours or even as long as a week.

Hiking - There are many fun land activities to try, too, such as hiking or bushwalking as the Australians call it. Put on your hiking boots and set out for the Blue Mountains, a panoramic scenery just 90 minutes away from Sydney, or visit the Kakadu National Park, the largest nature park in Australia. The Kakadu National Park is also a scenic paradise, with rainforests, wetlands and cascading waterfalls which are sure to captivate you.

Skiing - Many people choose to stay indoors during the winter but for some, it is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors because of the snow. Skiing is one of the most popular outdoor activities in Australia during winter, which is best enjoyed on the slopes of Victoria or Tasmania. The weather is especially great in Tasmania, the last stop before Antarctica, which becomes transformed into a magical winter wonderland not just suitable for skiing, but also for plenty of other winter sports, including sledding and snowboarding.

Rock climbing and rappelling - Rock climbing and rappelling are two popular outdoor activities in Australia whether in winter or in summer, so make sure you try them during your adventure holidays in Australia. Whether you're looking for a rock made of limestone, sandstone or granite, or whether you are a beginner or an experienced climber, you're sure to find a favorite among the various rock formations in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.

Bungy jumping - For an even more thrilling experience, conquer your fears and go bungy jumping. Bungy jumping establishments are easy to find in almost every part of Australia, but are especially abundant in Queensland. You can choose from different tourist packages, as well as different forms of bungy jumping, depending on how daring you like to be. You can also try going to the Bungy Bullet for a unique style of bungy jumping where you are shot up into the air instead of jumping down.

Skydiving - If you enjoyed being suspended in mid-air so much, you should definitely try out skydiving over Australia, which is also offered by many establishments. If you want something more relaxing, though, you can try riding a hot air balloon over Canberra and Melbourne and savor equally breathtaking views. With all these activities and plenty of others, you'll surely understand why this scenic country is the outdoor adventure capital of the world at the end of your adventure holidays in Australia.
