    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!

    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.

    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?

    I was in Australia for about 10 days and spent time in Sydney and Cairns. Sydney I thought was just another big city but I absolutely loved Cairns. Sydney reminded me of LA with an accent. Cairns was unbelievable!

    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.

    This country is truly the lucky one! Girthed by sea and lots of wonderful beaches, it's easy to see why I now call this place home!

    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.

    I am Australian so what more can I say. The best country on Earth. So diverse and and individualistic at the same time. I have travelled all over apart from the north west corner and it is just beautiful.

    Ok for a holiday, be prepared for a culture shock as it's nothing like the uk.Santa in shorts and Christmas in the middle of summer in 90 degree heat, poisonous snakes and spiders that can kill you within hours of being bitten, searing heat that can also kill you if your not carefull, the distances that you have to travel between cities is extreme, Sydney to Perth is of a similar distance as Glasgow (Scotland) to Moscow. Sydney is worth a look, but the crime rate is very high and it has a major drug problem.Travel south from Sydney and pay a visit to Batemans Bay, you will be glad you did.
    Most of the land you will see will be brown and dusty, there isvery little green, and in summer the risk of bush fires is a constant problem.This is not the glossy brochure picture of oz, this is the reality of oz and the way it really is.

    From learning about Aboriginal art and culture to walking trails in the N. Queensland rain forest to discovering the best chocolate shop or the best jazz in Sydney, there's so much to do here. I'm the outdoors sort so I loved hiking in the vast national parks, birding and seeing so many birds I'd never even heard of, and of course snorkeling the waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Tip: if you want to see a kangaroo in the wild head for a golf course.

    We live in NJ / USA so it is far away. It is quite informal and the people are unpretentious and friendly

    The country of my birth, a place for all to visit and enjoy. Relax and enjoy the beaches or travel to the great desserts. Food and entertaiment abound in Australia. The people will make you feel welcome. Take the step visit and enjoy.

    Australia is a wonderful, sun-kissed country. If you took an English gal and took her to southern California and spent the year playing volleyball and sunbathing along the beaches, then you would come up with Australia. The locals are cheerful and friendly, the beaches are great, and there is lots to do and see.

    Australia is one of the most beautiful places on earth, with some of the most friendly people in the world. It's easy to get around, has a great infrastructure (road, rail and airways) and is home to some of the most exotic creatures you've ever seen.

    Save your pennies and get down unda, mates! This should definitely be on everyone's bucket list!

    Cheers!

    A staggeringly beautiful country. So much to see and do, and so little time in which to do it.

Description

Once you go down under, there’s a good chance your heart will not return with you – there’s just so much to fall in love with here. Sydney will dazzle you with its bright lights, modern Opera House and perfect coastal location, making most visitors desire more of the sunshine. Further south you’ll hit the artsy and cosmopolitan city of Melbourne. If you're particularly civic-minded, the planned ... read more
capital of Canberra is a quirky stop in between. Of course, the cities here only make up a small part of the picture, as Australia has the world’s third lowest population density in the world. Most of that open space is found in the expanses of the Outback. Australia’s signature bushy desert takes up the entirety of the Western Territories, and the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef, lies just miles off the northeast coast of Queensland. If you’re really daring, take a ride through one of the swamps of the Northern Territory, where saltwater crocodiles make their habitat.
