What do you guys think of Australia?

I was wondering what do you guys think of Australia as a country and what do you associate it with?

Good and bad comments are welcome

If you can fall in love with a country - then I am! I just love it, all is different than in Europe....it's the paradise for me!

Once in my life I wanna travel there!

BB, I totally agree... if there is such a thing as falling in love with a country, I've definetly done it with Australia. All the Australians I've met are so nice and so friendly and just the more gracious people, as a whole, that i've met. And of course, Australia is just a beautiful country.... the outback, the beaches, the great barrier reef, just everything, it's gorgeous. It's been my dream for as long as I can remember to go to Australia and hopefully, I'll get a chance to go soon

Australia is a place I'd love to visit. Just takes way too long to get there.
