Australia's biggest attraction is its natural beauty. The landscape varies from endless sunbaked horizons to dense tropical rainforest to chilly southern beaches. Scattered along the coasts, its cities blend a European enthusiasm for art and food with a laid-back love of sport and the outdoors. Visitors expecting to see an opera in Sydney one night and meet Crocodile Dundee the next will have to re-think their grasp of geography in this huge country. It is this sheer vastness that gives Australia - and its diverse population - much of its character.

Zion In Oz

Sun, 7 Nov 2021 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [56]

It's not a palindrome, but an anagram. Years ago, my friend Krista spent close to two years in Australia. She raved about Karijini National Park, therefore when a good friend speaks so personally about a place it must be special. When I looked at it ... Read more >
