Australia has to be one of my favourite countries in the world.
Tropical climates, winter snows, outback wilderness where you don't see another car for 250kms, its got it all! It's a beautiful country and the wildlife is just as good!
I first came to Australia to live in Ballarat, Victoria in 1998. I was only here for a year, but instantly loved it - the warmer climates (even in Ballarat!) were too inticing. So in my gap year before University, I came back and spent 6 months volunteering on conservation projects around the Country. After that I decided the too-ing and fro-ing was costing a lot in plane flights! In 2008 I moved out and am now living in Melbourne.
