Happy, down to earth people, very laid back (Perth especially, Sydney not so much, but still laid back compared to the rest of the world), great health care system, gorgeous beaches, nice cities, cute towns. Though those accents you hear in movies are totally over-the-top (e.g. Crocodile Dundee style accents). The accent varies from the East Coast to the West Coast (East Coast accent is stronger). Has the best junk food (i always thought America did til I actually went their), we have WAY more many flavours of potato chips and chocolate is nicer and more flavours. We love our sports, not all of us, but most for sure.

Ok now for the down-side of Australia....it gets hot in summer! 40C (104F) is not uncommon (even higher sometimes, but most Aussies enjoy summer and go to the beach a lot. Most places don't get snow and the places that do the snow isn't as good as overseas snow, the people that live there will probably disagree. We don't have heaps of international movies and entertainment been made here except for Australian productions and tv. We don't have as many free-to-air TV channels, but we have enough so we're not couch potatoes. We get made out to other countries like we're bush weirdos with bad accents, which annoys just about every Aussie I know. No other country can do our accent right, do you how many times me and my family & friends crack up laughing in 'Lost' when people do fake accents (they sound awful!!!), Emily (because she is an Aussie) is the only one who really sounds like us. People also think we're just beach and bush....so not true...we do have big cities with good shopping.

Overall though the upside definetely outweighs the lows. I love it here and would never live anywhere else, though I do love other countries, but Australia is definetely my fave and my home.
Best holiday city: Gold Coast (great shopping, theme parks and nice beaches, quite crowded though)

Best old style city: Melbourne (well no other city looks as old style, good night life there)

Best sightseeing city: Sydney (Sydney harbour and the SH bridge, Opera House, great shopping also)

Best city to live: Perth (Has the best beaches in Australia (though Gold Coasters will claim this), good shopping, prettiest city, good nightlife and relaxed atmosphere)

Best city to see natural beauty: Darwin (though the city is not so nice looking the places surrounding the city are gorgeous, such as springs and tropical settings) Beware of the lakes with crocodiles...

Best city to be bored in: Canberra (well I haven't been there so maybe I shouldn't mock it, but everyone I know who's lived there and moved says how boring it is....but hey my mum liked it)...the Capital of Australia

Best city if you want a city not too big but big enough: Adelaide, a nice city, reasonable size, good shopping.

Ok now that leaves me with just Brisbane and Hobart...
well Hobart let's see....

I can't really say what to give both of them as I've only drivin through Brisbane and I've never been to Hobart....but I'm sure they're both nice

The best fuckin' country in the world, Australia, is also the only place where Christ could never have been born, as in Australia, you cannot find 3 wisemen and a virgin.

Australia is a country situated in between the Indian and Pacific Ocean in the Southern Hemisphere. Australia is the 6th largest country by land in the world, with a range of different climates from Dry deserts to Rainforests to Grasslands to Mountains. Australia was previously inhabited by Aboriginies and Torres Strait Islanders before it was overtaken by the British and made a colony. Most of Australia's Population live in Large Cities on it's coast, but is proud of it's small country towns and their culture. Officially voted the 3rd best Country in the world overall by the United Nations (after Sweden and Norway) Australia is just a great place.

Ahhh....Australia. The Great Southern Land, Down Under, Terra Australis, Oz, The Better Version of New Zealand...
The world's biggest island and smallest continent, with the world's highest amount of sporting success per capita. Dryest inhabitated continent and the only country to occupy a whole continent. Sixth largest country in the world and the third least densely populated. The national occupations are drinking and sport, unsurprising given we're all descended from convicts.
Pom/Kiwi/Yank/Frog/pretty much anyother nationality: "Damn those Australians, they've beaten our cricket/football/swimming/hockey/most other sports under the sun team for the 456th time!"

australia is a great country with a diverse culture. good friendly people, good at almost every sport and one of the highest standards of living. nothing like america where they dont even have a proper health system.
australia spends thier money on important things like; education, health and employment where as america spends most of thier money on the military.

america is not such a great counrty.
