I can't say enough good things about the land down under! I spent over a year in Oz and loved every minute of it! Gorgeous landscapes, amazing wildlife, beautiful people; I'd go back in a heartbeat!Recommended for:

Think you know Australia? Think again. Forget the usual tourist traps of Australia’s east coast and head for the chilled-out village of Yamba in northern New South Wales. With uncrowded beaches, stunning national parks and top-notch surfing, this lesser-visited town – which a few years ago was voted the top place to live in Oz - only boasts one hostel, so check in quick.Recommended for:

There are few places left in this world that have been left to nature, and Australia has more than its fair share of them – the vast desert interior, the rugged northwest and the jungles of Arnhem Land have been left pretty much as nature intended. A place to really create your own adventure, a place that will bring out the survivalist in you, a place where you can drive for days and not see a single other human being, a place where the stars shine the brightest, thousands of miles from the light pollution that plague the night skies of Europe and America. Just don’t forget to tell somebody where you’re going, okay?Recommended for:

I travelled to Australia last summer and it was amazing, I was studying in Brisbane whislt on a working holiday visa two months, and I bring to my country a great experience from Australia and the people I knew there, who help me a lot and show me really nice places and other style of life, I obtain the visa with the help of a migration company call Thames Migration, and they were very kind and fast all over the process, I recommend everybody to go once in the life there.

It's kinda hard to review an entire country/continent, so here goes nothin: Australia is big. I mean, really, really, you-could-die-if-you-drive-across-it-without-water big, but with only about 20 million people, it somehow feels like traveling through a giant small town. The cities are beautiful, but get out in nature: the wine region of the Hunter Valley, the wintry Blue Mountains, the Great Ocean Road south of Melbourne.
Plus, they have the best animals of any continent, hands down. Koalas, kangaroos, wombats *and* penguins? It's just not fair to North America or Asia.

Big place + few people = the perfect equation for celebs looking to evade prying eyes. Whether they want to find themselves (but no-one else to find them), dive or enjoy some of Oz’s frankly bizarroworld wildlife, there are luxury lodges springing up like proverbial kangaroos all across Australia. The winning combination of cutting edge design, super slick service and jaw-dropping landscapes and wildlife are best experienced at Southern Ocean Lodge on the imaginatively named Kangaroo Island off New South Wales; Capella Lodge on Lord Howe Island and Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa in the Blue Mountains.
