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 :D

I used to live there (and im planning on going back) and i dont think it's that backwards and uncivilized ( :p ) actually i would much rather live there than this boring country.....

I should probably warn anyone who wants to visit that koalas are nocturnal. They sleep for about 18 hours a day!

What do I associate with Australia?

* Terry :)
* The weather
* The soap operas (:worship: for The Secret Life of Us)
* The music (I have the song Beds are Burning by Midnight Oil in my head)
* The lager commercials (hello Paul Hogan! ;))

There is much more I'm sure... :)

If you guys want to visit Australia, check out Brisbane and Perth if you can.

I was up in Brisbane 2 years ago and the ppl and party life is excellent:hearts:

and I've heard good things about Perth:)

Oy Miguel! :wavey: ..... you gotta make sure you come meet up with us for a drink or six when you stop by in Sydney! ;) The weather will be just right for you if you come in autumn (or fall as you say ;)).... though to be honest, who can actually predict what Sydney weather is going go to be like?!?! Hope you do get to make it here in 05 - u should maybe head down earlier in summer and catch the tennis (though i guess it would be expensive with peak season)

I hope to visit one day. Two of my friends where there 2 years ago (in Melbourne) and really loved it. They stayed for a year working under the table jobs and traveling around a bit. Brian (one of the two that went) said that Australia reminded him a lot of the States. I don't know if to you that's good or bad. ;)
