Some stereotypes that need to be cleared up:
No, there are no kangaroos in the cities. Not even Perth.
We do not talk like Crocodile Dundee.
We don't wear khaki. At least, not the sane people.
We don't drink beer all day, unless we're drunks. Which we're not. At least not the majority of us.
We don't ride kangaroos. That is physically impossible. Think about it.
Koalas are not bears. Full stop.
Good things about Aus:
In Perth at least (no I don't live here, but I do some of the time), people are so friendly you can literally walk up to a random's door and they don't run inside and call the police.
We have some pretty cool history.
The weather is warm, even in winter (in WA anyway)
It snows, but not in all areas, and not all the time. So if you want to go skiing or whatever, go to Canberra or something.
The beaches are dazzling, deadly and just damn awesome.
We are the best country in the world. Sorry guys. Just be jealous and deal with it.
We have forests, deserts, beaches, mountains, snow, and just everything.
Fremantle Prison rocks.
Asians are slowly taking over.
Us: That's Australia.
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.
america is not such a great counrty.
