Australia
I've lived in Australia all my life, except when holidaying overseas. It is an amazing and diverse place. :-) I have lived in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and the country over a period of 25 years and have returned to Adelaide. I grew up in Adelaide, a city no-one seems to mention. It's lovely and quiet with only about 1.2 million people. Where else could you live on 17 acres within 30 minutes drive of the central business district?

While we love travelling and spent 3 months overseas last year we were very grateful we had Australia to come back to. While we found fabulous places and experienced all sorts of cultures, we found no place we'd rather live.

I've been to Sydney and Brisbane. Australia is such a great place to visit, the beaches are really nice and the surf is REALLY great!

I would return to Australia, but my only trip there was so great that I could never top it.

My almost 13 year old would love to go there. We enjoy watching the show Awesome Pawsome about the four tiger cubs - well they must be adults by now.

Holding us back is a very long plane ride from CA and that both my kids are on the spectrum and we could never handle the time it takes. Hopefully air travel speed is making strides as I recal Richard Branson talking on one of the talk shows about it, by the time they have it done we will have the money and stamina to do it.

By that time my Rosacea and menopause would be over and that would help a lot. What are the seasons in Australia - is there an article that tells you what to do in Jan, what to dress and things of that nature. How to plan a visit any time of the year?

Australia's seasons are sort of backward from the US. Summer is from Nov to January to Feb, while winter starts in late May to maybe July or August. It snows up in the montains a little, but not really in the major cities. smile

Canada
I haven't been to Australia in more years than I care to admit, but travelling there was an incredible experience. My husband and I, honeymooners at the time, were hitchhiking along the East Coast -- and I thought Canada was big! We'd spend all day with a trucker before reaching the next spot of civilization! I need to go back, soon I think. In six weeks, we barely scratched the surface of the East Coast and didn't even make it as far north as Darwin or inland past Canberra in the south.

Cheers,
Megan

Now planning a return to Australia. Which is better, the Diamant Hotel or The Observatory?
